If you’ve been looking around for BIO channel you may have already noticed it’s been re-branded as FYI. The A+E Networks-owned channel switched from BIO to FYI as of July 7, with a change to more lifestyle-focused programming. FYI’s lineup consists of shows such as “Married at First Site,” a brand new reality show that pairs unknowing couples; the makeover series “Born to Style” beginning on July 15; and the Las Vegas-based “World Food Championships” series premiering tonight, July 10. “American Eats,” “Kitchen Nightmares,” and “Wife Swap” are among other shows airing on FYI.
A+E Networks President and CEO Nancy Dubuc said last year of the rebrand, “FYI will be an upscale network with a younger and more modern sensibility than what we’ve seen on traditional lifestyle networks.”
You can find FYI on Dish Network channel 119 (HD/SD), DirecTV 266 (HD/SD), AT&T U-verse 1272 (HD), Verizon FiOS 629 (HD), and on most cable TV providers (check your local guide listings.)
