Will Challenge TV in the UK follow the Boomerang USA model by focusing on streaming?


Jul 2, 2021
Challenge TV in the UK has performed poorly since around 2015/2016, with its only successful show being The Chase. It has also received less attention in recent times, with almost no original commissions since 2016, it’s +1 channel being closed down, it’s social media feeds and website being cut and being removed from Sky Catch-Up. However, it could be revitalised by following the Boomerang USA model of focusing on streaming. The new streaming service would include shows that air on the channel past and present, including old original shows like Family Catchphrase and Stake Out. If the streaming service becomes a success, the TV channel could be removed from free tv and be replaced by a channel like Sky Replay or Sky Crime, although due to the potential for lucrative sponsorship deals, the channel will remain for a period of time after it leaves free tv and stay on pay tv.

Bella/Big from Polly Pocket reminds me of Big Barda from DC Superhero Girls 2015, being a physically strong character who's initially antagonistic before becoming a friend to the main characters, and showing a softer side. Rhona Rees even seems to channel a voice similar to Misty Lee. I know Shea Fontana developed both shows, but still.

I’m hoping the first Madagascar movie finally airs on Nickelodeon this year. They’ve only played the sequels so far.
