All About Freeform on DIRECTV DIRECTV

If you are looking to binge on your favorite TV shows on Freeform, and fill up those long summer days, worry not as America’s #1 satellite provider DIRECTV DIRECTV has got you covered!

Freeform is a worldwide basic cable TV channel based in America – the property of Walt Disney Television, a unit of Disney Media Networks and part of the Walt Disney Company.

In the mid-2000s Freeform set its focus on targeting teenagers and young adults. However, some new original drama series, managed to attract great interest among the “becomers”—cross-section of the audience aged 14–34. So much so that teen drama “Pretty Liars” became a flagship program, and the channel’s primetime viewership rose to new levels. From 2016, Freeform started to shift its focus more towards original programming aligned with culturally progressive views, in line with the channel’s new slogan i.e. “A Little Forward”, under the ownership of Disney-ABC Group. The channel’s current programming includes modern-day off-network syndicated reruns along with original series and TV movies, and feature films.

The Freeform channel underwent many changes in terms of programming format since its initiation back in 1977. It started as a religious channel and evolved into a family channel in the 80s. In the 90s, it was spun into a for-profit network under the auspices of International Family Entertainment (IFE), which contributed to the channel becoming popular under a simpler name tag “The Family Channel”. In 1997, both IFE and the Family Channel were taken over by News Corporation and Saban Entertainment; subsequently, the channel was rebranded as the Fox Family Channel, with an aim to target younger viewers. In 2001, the concern was sold to the Walt Disney Company due to declining viewership, and the channel was renamed once more-- as ABC Family. Things began to look better for the network-- popularity among viewers started to rise-- until in October 2015 the Disney–ABC Television Group announced the launch of Freeform-- which in 2016 became official.

On DIRECTV DIRECTV, you can watch all your favorite shows and movies on Freeform including Beyond, Bunheads, Everything’s Gonna Be Okay, as well as catch on programming blocks such as Funday Weekend, 30 Days of Disney, 31 Nights of Halloween & 25 Days of Christmas.
