New Diginet on CBS O&Os?

Remember folks- we have no schedule, no website, no anything to know just what kind of channel this is going to be.

 

However, in addition to Run’s House, they’ve also aired a few hours of The Jamie Foxx Show and are currently in the middle of a block of The Wayans Bros. 
 

Could this be Viacom’s attempt to muddy the waters for The Grio while they’re still running color bars? 
 

edit: Total Recall is on next (5pm eastern)... 

What programs has Fave TV being showing for the past few days?

The mention of Pluto reminds me that there really needs to be OTT distribution of these diginets; OTA coverage of these networks save the top-tier ones like MeTV is quite spotty. For example, Buzzr is on Pluto.

I would imagine this new Fave diginet will be added to Pluto sooner or later since Pluto is owned by ViacomCBS; DABL is on there.

The weekday schedule seems to be the same as the launch day schedule (Run's House, Jamie Foxx, Wayans Bros., a movie, and Bar Rescue)

 

I've tuned in sporadically since Friday night have have also seen Auction Hunters (Spike), The Challenge (MTV), and they were running Punk'd (MTV) up against SNL last night. 

 

Wasn't there an article recently about Netfilx or Hulu launching a branded linear channel in France? Viacom should've just called this Pluto!

Nah.

 

With this weak, tiny, static amount of programming catered to one small demo and not much information to write home about it at the moment compared to Pluto's, ViacomCBS should not. If they did, there'd be way more planning and advertising surrounding it.

This must just be a soft launch for the channel with a proper launch in January? Dabl was given a proper launch with lots of articles about it launching. So far this has absolutely nothing

Agreed. It may also be when other stations outside the CBS ones get the network. Perhaps it'll comprise mostly of Fox and CW stations judging by its youth skewing programming?

 

And speaking of PlutoTV, they do carry Dabl on channel 614. This could mean that when or if it has an official launch, Pluto will add FaveTV.

Maybe some of CBS shows will show up on like reruns of Amazing Race,Survivor and so on. Maybe Hearst will hook up with it because just has like METV,True Crime Network and on some Heroes and Icons and Estella.
