The niche cable network, POP TV, which was the longtime home of IMPACT Wrestling, is now owned completely by CBS. POP TV was once owned by both CBS and Lionsgate. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
While CBS now owns 100% of POP TV, Lionsgate will continue to create programming for the cable network.
“With ownership under one roof, we also hope to explore more opportunities where Pop can be part of content and marketing initiatives across all CBS-owned platforms. By way of example, Pop has collaborated successfully with the CBS Television Network for several years on the late night companion series Big Brother After Dark and with other cross-platform ideas,” he added.
