When Sony sold their channels ,the Sony brand was removed , and Virgin 1 became Channel One after Sky bought VMTV
As I recall, all these channels were formerly owned by Chello previously and branded as Zone e.g. CBS Drama was Zone Romantica. So it won't be the first time.

Unless CBS Reality reverts back to Reality TV, it seems it may be the last remaining CBS-branded channel.

Yep, that sounds right to me and probably suits both parties anyway.

Paramount have their Ch5 branded channels, so don't need any others and on the streaming front, the new Paramount+ is about to launch and Pluto is going strong too.

I wouldn't be too surprised if Paramount buy AMC at some point as Lionsgate who currently own it, are looking to offload it.

I think you're getting confused with Starz which Lionsgate own.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

My Sources say that La Liga TV HD is set to also close on Sky from July 1st with La Liga TV moving to streaming only from next season.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

A little write up about the changes to the CBS branded channels, including the new/updated logos.

https://rxtvinfo.com/2022/cbs-name-d...channel-change

Still find it odd there will be a HorrorExtra but no Horror.

As odd as Horror Channel showing Star Trek and the like, which is presumably why Legend came about, to show a sci-fi/horror/fantasy mix like HC did.

Yeah I totally get rebranding Horror, and Legend is quite a good name.

Legend and LegendXtra sitting alongside Reality and RealityXtra would have kept things nicely focused on two core brands.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Rumour:

I have seen rumours on Digital Spy that rebrands of Horror Channel and CBS Branded channels are down to Paramount Global selling their shares in CBS AMC Networks UK Channels Partnership to AMC Networks UK

But I have still to see a source for this rumour.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Given the continuing absence of the Disney+, Discovery+ and Apple TV+ apps on VM (V6/360 boxes) and now the lack of Paramount+, I'm not sure VMs strategy to be the aggregator of SVoD is going very well ��
