    What if Discovery Family legit takes CN reruns and puts themn 24 7

    Add Motor Trend to that bottom list, since I don't think other WBD channels air Velocity/MT content. (At least, the Italian one does that, auto stuff used to be on DMAX, until Motor Trend came, and now it all sits in MT.) For the thread question, if Discovery Family becomes the one channel that...

    I see! Maybe, Narrative is falling in the same trap that Sony fell in, doing disasters (while believing that would improve POP). My issues with Sony are way way different. My issue is that they closed two okay channels (AXN Italy and AXN Sci-Fi Italy, that also was the last one of its type...

    Blame Sony for POP Max and the binning of Kix, blame Narrative for the weird choice of turning Tiny Pop into a FAST channel. Weird choices all around, huh.

    My guess is good as yours. But I think that could happen? It would be weird having two different types of logos + presentation for the same channel around.

    It is that the most rebranded AMC Networks channel? Five rebrands are a... lot. Close to that, the first thing I can think is AMC Break in Spain, but that's just its fourth rebrand (it used to be Bio, A&E and Blaze before that). Now that I think, AMC Crime is also another that had a bunch of...

    Who will buy Paramount?

    They're still in time to sell Game One and J-One to someone else. And Super! That one should go to someone that cares (or go back to DeAgostini, but I think they sold it because they didn't want to deal with that anymore?)

    Corus losing Discovery programming by end of year.

    I see that someone that commented in the article that you linked that Corus could revive FYI as idea for fill that niche of lifestyle channels. An idea I would not oppose, but not sure if the brand could sustain the momentum?

    Watch @LinusFan303 end to have guessed correctly and Paramount doesn't get sold. Because at this point, I think it's the only solution.

    Well... I stand corrected. Cosmo is now considered part of A+E Networks EMEA's portfolio of channels. https://www.aenetworks.tv/brands/cosmo Not that it changes that much, since it's still Hearst behind that, but, yeah? I take back my words, for sure. EDIT: Well, it seems that Cosmo has been...

    The fact that Corus operates CN (and Boomerang), Disney (+ Disney XD and Disney Junior), Nickelodeon (+ Nick Jr.) and their own YTV and Treehouse is kinda absurd, when you think about it.

    Boomerang International News and Discussion Thread 4.0

    Makes sense. The French Boing wasn't that exciting, I think it was mainly older (?) content. You can't close Boing in Italy, since it's more or less CN but FTA. You can't close Boing in Spain, since that's the single thing left (and it does have a CN block. I presume it will also have a...

    Boom IT escaped the renaming just because Italy already has Cartoonito (and since that and Boing are joint ventures with Mediaset, here, for some reason they're missing from Sky.

    Film&Arts, 1st of June 2024 Introducing: What if AMC Networks in the LATAM region has a channel that does what A&E was originally made for? Also, testing a new workflow of sorts, but I guess I'll go back to my old ways, this one is too complicated.

    Did you know that because of the fact that they don't exist in the Paramount Global EPG database™️, the sites of Game One, J-One and Super! lack a programme guide on their websites? (Also, the copyright notes on Game One and J-One have the wrong year in it.)

    Watch WBD renaming CN into Boing. Spain already deals with Boing covering all the bases, since when CN Spain was closed. And the Italian one is pretty much CN but FTA. (I'm joking... Or perhaps not?)
