Fox Reality Channel joining Comcast, Time Warner cable systems

The all-reality TV cable network “Fox Reality has new distribution agreements with the nation’s top two cable system operators Comcast Cable and Time Warner Cable,” Variety reports.

That should “push it over the 35 million-subscriber mark in its sophomore year, joining the ranks of National Geographic Channel, TNT and NFL Network,” Variety says. A large number of its current subscribers come from its presence on satellite providers DirecTV and DISH Network; its web site also says it’s available on Cox, Adelphia, Insight, and Cable One.

The network debuted in May of 2005, mostly with reruns of old shows. Thursday night, it debuts its first original docusoap series, Rob and Amber: Against the Odds. Alas, the series is terrible.
