We’re shortly to see a new Freeview channel appear, and for once it’s not a shopping channel or a Babestation service. Really!
TV company UKTV already offers Dave and Yesterday on Freeview, and it has just announced that it will soon be adding ‘Really‘ to the lineup.
Really will join the Freeview lineup from the 2nd of August 2011 on Freeview Channel 20, replacing Dave Ja Vue.
If you’re not familiar with the TV channel Really, it’s been broadcasting on the Sky and Virgin platforms for a while. It’s billed as a “lifestyle channel”, and according to the blurb, the station is aimed at predominately young women (so more of a Davina than a Dave?). The channel claims to offer honest, outrageous and fun programming, with a mix of UK TV series and imported American shows, including a high percentage of reality / real-life TV shows. Really’s slogan? “You couldn’t make it up”!
A look at recent shows on the channel reveals that Really offers the likes of Tough Love, Bizarre ER, Snog Marry Avoid, Faking it, How to Find a Husband, Medical Emergency, Bridezilla, Truth at Ten and Spendaholics.
You can expect to see Really replacing the timeshift channel Dave Ja Vue from the beginning of August 2011.
