Dabl, the free over-the-air (OTA) TV network, first launched in September of 2019. Owned by CBS at the time and now Paramount, the network focuses on reality programming from CBS and other partners with shows like Hotel Hell, House Doctor, Martha Stewart Living, and other popular lifestyle shows. Now, the network has quietly relaunched as almost a copy of the old UPN channel.
According to the schedule for Dabl the network has changed from airing reality lifestyle programs to airing programs like The Parkers, Sister Sister, Girlfriends, and Moesha. With a few exceptions for shows like Animal Rescue and Wild Times at the San Diego Zoo, most of the schedule after the 29th of December is focused on programs like Sister Sister and Moesha.
The network has also gotten a new slogan of “get into it.” In the past Dabl described itself as a New Lifestyle Network, but now it seems to be more a clone of the old UPN network.
Back in September, Dabl stopped posting on Social media, with its last post on X and Facebook coming on September 15. Paramount has not officially announced any changes but today the channel got a new lineup, logo, an slogan.
Paramount declined to comment on this change.
You can find Dabl on paid services like Paramount+, YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, and a collection of cable TV companies.
This news comes as earlier this year, Paramount rebranded its sister network Decades a joint venture with the Weigel Broadcasting group, to focus on comedies and away from its more classic TV focus.
Update it seems Pluto TV has dropped Dabl channel.
