This from the IMDb:

ABC Goes British
The Walt Disney Co. announced today (Thursday) that it will launch a version of its ABC television network on the British Freeview digital terrestrial service beginning in September. To be called ABC1, the channel will air a combination of current ABC shows not already airing on other British outlets and reruns of hit series from the past. (The lineup includes Home Improvement, Once and Again, My Wife and Kids, Alias, The Practice, and the long-running daytime soap General Hospital.) Freeview, a joint operation of the BBC, BSkyB and Crown Castle (a company that owns and operates broadcasting transmission sites), has struggled to find an audience since it was born in Oct. 2002 out of the collapse of ITV Digital. Only about a million homes are equipped to receive Freeview's 30 channels. Disney has no plans initially to air advertising on ABC1, presumably planning to wait until Freeview attracts a greater number of viewers before it does.
