One of the cable networks owned by Comcast’s NBCUniversal is changing its name, our good friend Mike Schneider at TVGuide.com reports.
Writes Schneider: "From the company that morphed Sci Fi into Syfy comes another channel name destined to wreak havoc with your computer’s spell check. TV Guide Magazine has confirmed that NBCUniversal will change the name of Sleuth, its crime and mystery cable channel, later this spring. The new name? Cloo TV."
The article continues: "Why the name change and quirky spelling? Just as NBCUniversal realized that it couldn’t trademark the words Sci Fi, it faced the same problem with Sleuth. (Or Clue, for that matter.) But it can own the word Cloo."
