Dave Channel Identity
UKTV had a problem with UKTVG2. A channel for 16-44 men that was hard to pronounce and even harder to remember, it had brand awareness of only 2%. Despite great programming it simply wasn’t connecting with viewers. Major surgery was urgently required.
Despite great programming, UKTVG2’s ratings were poor. A channel for 16-44 men with brand awareness of just 2%, it needed a major work over and a clear and desirable point of difference.
The programmes were the key; intelligent, irreverent genuine humour which led to the strapline “The home of witty banter”. Dave was chosen as the channel name to give an accessible feel that people can relate to, a completely original idea. A range of channel idents were created along with a multi-media launch campaign.

- Average minutes watched on channel in Pay TV increased by 17% to 34.8 mins
