Comedy Gold reveals new look

Comedy Gold viewers are being given the golden ticket to check out the channel’s refreshed new look just in time for a nationwide freeview.

Sleek and stylish, Comedy Gold’s new look is now aligned with that of sister station The Comedy Network, which was re-branded in November 2011.

Bell Media is offering a free preview of Comedy Gold beginning today and running until Tuesday, July 31, nationally on Bell TV and regionally via other distributors.
This retro-fitted look will not only be reflected on-air, but also carried over into the station’s online presence at ComedyGold.ca. Similar to The Comedy Network, the redesigned logo can be seen glittering across all of Comedy Gold’s assets, including on-air promos.

As part of the freeview, timeless favourite I LOVE LUCY is joining Comedy Gold’s roster of classic sitcoms Tuesday, July 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Other Comedy Gold cozy classics include FULL HOUSE, WHO’S THE BOSS?, THE BOB NEWHART SHOW, NEWHART, NIGHT COURT, and ONE DAY AT A TIME. Weekends are especially tribute-worthy offering a trip down memory lane with enchanting old-time marathons.

Below is a sample of the Comedy Gold marathons taking place throughout the freeview (programming subject to change, visit ComedyGold.ca to confirm local broadcast times).
