POP

TVGN (TV Guide Network), the entertainment channel owned by CBS Corporation and Lionsgate, seen in more than 80 million homes and delivering its highest primetime audiences in over five years, announced that it will rebrand as POP, a multi-platform destination dedicated to celebrating the fun of being a fan. Launching in the first quarter of 2015 with over 400 hours of fan-fueled original programming, POP will provide a multi-platform destination that creates content around the things popping in fan culture, with a programming and development slate to be announced in the coming weeks. POP's upcoming line-up will expand on previously announced original series, including Rock this Boat: New Kids on the Block, a series following die-hard fans of one of the most wildly popular and best-selling boy bands of all time, and The Story Behind, a series that goes behind-the-scenes of TV's greatest hits and most iconic shows and how they got their start. POP's programming will enhance entertainment experiences that have built-in fan bases by further igniting their passion and give fans a channel that loves being a fan as much as they do. Stay tuned for more info as we get closer to 2015.
