CBS Reality launches on Freeview
The new channel took over at the stroke of midnight using bandwidth previously assigned to shopping channel 'bid', which changed frequencies on the 31st March.
CBS Reality has been available on satellite and cable platforms since 2009, when it replaced "Zone Reality".
Current programmes on the channel include Judge Judy, Unsolved Mysteries, Medical Detectives and Bait Car.
Sister channels CBS Drama and Action remain available on satellite and cable platforms; there's been no word as to whether these channels might appear on Freeview in the future.
