Pop is a channel originally launched in 1981 as the EPG, a service owned by United Video Service Group. After a while, it was shifted over to Trakker and renamed it as Prevue Guide in 1988 then to Prevue Channel in 1993. It then changed to TV Guide Channel (then as TV Guide Network and TVGN) in 1999 after it bought out TV Guide and renamed them to its names several times. It was then owned as an joint venture between Lionsgate and CBS Corporation until CBS acquired Lionsgate's stake in 2018, airing shows related to pop culture, derived completely away from its roots. Today, Pop is currently owned by ViacomCBS.

1st Logo (2015)

Logo: On a grey background, the Pop logo flips erratically while inverting into place, this time in cyan. As it rests, a copyright for Pop Media Group appears below and a rectangle outlines slides out with "originals" in it. The logo then cuts to just the Pop logo with the URL dropping out.

FX/SFX: The inverting and quick effects.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Seen on episodes of Sing It Out during the time, as well as Queens of Drama.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (2016-)

Logo: On a black background, a yellow rectangle is seen waving before the italicized text "Pop" slides into place. It then straightens out before the logo briefly inverts and cuts to the text flipped and taking up the whole screen. It then quickly cuts to the logo forming up as "ORIGINAL" slides up in yellow. Below the text is the same copyright from before in the same color as the box. It then cuts to just the logo again, this time fully straightening out, but after a brief inverted shot of the flipped text.

Variants: Several color variants exist, depending on the show.

FX/SFX: The inverting and quick effects.

Music/Sounds: A series of 3 synth notes, with sounds of a crowd cheering in between the synths. When used at the beginning, a female voice says "A Pop Original Series."

Availability: Current.

Editor's Note: None.
