CBS Reality launches on Freeview in the UK

Factual channel CBS Reality has launched in the UK on digital-terrestrial platform Freeview, making it available to some 9.5 million households. 

CBS Reality, which is part of the CBS Chello Zone UK partnership of channels, is available on Freeview channel 66, and the firm claims it is the first channel on the platform dedicated 100% to reality programming.

The real life network airs documentaries and series including shows like Judge Judy, Cheaters and Dog & Beth: On the Hunt.

“We are thrilled CBS Reality will be added to the DTT platform as the audiences for both are incredibly well matched.  The channel is the ratings leader in our CBS Chello Zone Partnership portfolio and will no doubt be compelling viewing for Freeview customers,” said Tanya Gugenheim, chief of business development, Chello Zone.
