Channels changing names

You might have noticed some changes in your BendBroadband channel lineup.
No, you’re not losing your mind.
Earlier this month, ABC Family (channel 67/667 HD), in what network officials say is an effort to better capture the millennial market, rebranded and is now known as Freeform. The new channel will focus more on shows geared for viewers between the ages of 14 and 34, a target audience the network has coined “Becomers.”

Also in January, CMT Pure Country on channel 197 took on a new moniker and is now CMT Music.

The biggest change in terms of programming will occur on Feb. 29, when Viceland launches on channel 163, replacing H2, a sister network of the History Channel. Viceland, which started as a punk magazine in Canada in the early 1990s, is expected to offer a series of shows that highlight people and places not associated with mainstream culture. Gaycation looks at what it means to be LGBT in different countries around the world. Weediquette examines the business and etiquette of marijuana. And Huang’s World follow’s culinary rock star Eddie Huang as he treks across the globe.
