Announced a few months ago, the Sci-Fi channels name change to Syfy will begin today. The name change was done to attract a more casual audience that “may be afraid of all the sci-fi stuff”. I don’t understand how the name change will bring in new viewers considering it is pronounced the same way as the old channel, but I guess that’s not why I’m not some bigwig at the Syfy channel. The first original show, Warehouse 13, which is a story of federal agents working within a wharehouse that stores ancient/supernatural artifacts debuts tonight at 9et/8ct, where as all current programming will remain in their current timeslots for now. Looking at their promo video below, it appears that there is a show about Tracy Morgan playing with giant dinosaurs.
Sci-Fi channel becomes Syfy channel today.
