TV5 Plus

Post by R Bedell » Mon Jul 16, 2018 9:58 am

Seen TV5 advertising something new, debuting on Monday July 30th. It is called TV5 "plus". Geez, I wonder what this will be...???

Maybe something like "the four" on 9&10?

If they're gonna do something like "the four" then they should revive the old "Take 5" like they used to have that was hosted by Dick Fabian and Leslie Davis.

TV 5 Plus... Hmm... Who wouldn't want MORE TV5? (Just a little sarcasm there)

Looks like they're just renaming My 5.

Nothing will change. You will still get the programs rejected by other channels in the market.

Seems a small hint was conveyed yesterday. It looks like they are re-branding Channel 5.2 from "My 5" to "5 Plus". What they are adding is still unknown.

Unfortunately I won't be able to see it. Charter replaced My5 with something else some time ago.

It's the market's "lipstick on a pig." They can hype it up all they want, but there won't be any additional programming. Don't be duped. It all stays the same. All of the second-run programs will be there.

I think you are right.

This move kind of reminds me of how WMYD in Detroit dropped the "My" branding and their MyNetworkTV-style logo (complete with the "20" that was clearly designed with their prior affiliation with The WB in mind) after they were bought by Scripps a few years ago (making a duopoly with WXYZ), effectively 'reverting' to just "TV20 Detroit". Then again, part of me wants to think that this'll just be similar to how WJRT handled 12.2 prior to it joining the LiveWell Network (which they did back then by filling much of the air time with reruns of Newsmaker and 20/20 episodes).


Isn't it nice how deregulation has brought us such oversized and dangerously overleveraged broadcast owners? (Yes, I'm looking at YOU, Sinclair, Nexstar, Cume-U-Less, and iFart!)

I think you are right, but what first-run programs could they put there?

It's "Bob's Burgers." There is no change to what is airing on this channel. This press release feels that it was written by someone with poor grammar skills.

That release is laughable. A whole lot of excitement for a whole lot of NOTHING. :lol:

Looks like 'CW13' in Toledo. No effort into the logo, stale shows, and probably allot of PSAs and promos.

Meredith is doing what the Fox O&O's have done with MY and just putting a plus in the name. Meredith did that in Portland put the Plus for the MYNet TV.
