Pop TV is a joint venture between Lionsgate Entertainment and CBS Corporation. Pop TV used to be TVGN, which was one of those channels that would serve as a scrolling TV guide of the various programs on TV at that time. In fact, it was owned by TV Guide. Then, as cable companies began to roll out more sophisticated (and useful) guides of their own, this type of scrolling TV guide was no longer needed. As a result, the mission changes, and TVGN became Pop TV. Pop TV has the new focus of general entertainment with reruns, sitcoms and shows about pop culture.
