REELZ (also known as REELZCHANNEL) is an independent, American digital cable television channel operated by family-owned Hubbard Broadcasting devoted to entertaining and fresh programming that explores, uncovers and lives inside the magic of Hollywood wherever it happens. It features news and information on movies currently in theaters as well as information on movies released on DVD and airing on cable television. In addition, VOD and Pay-TV highlights are featured in a segment that airs twice an hour called REELZ Recommends. It is tailored to providers based on either the pay-per-view channel map or VOD remote instructions for each system. REELZCHANNEL also operates a hotel-only service in partnership with LodgeNet, called REELZCHANNEL In Your Room. This combines original REELZCHANNEL programming with movie reviews in case one wishes to order a movie in their hotel room.

REELZCHANNEL launched on September 27, 2006[1] and is independently owned and operated. It was initially available via DirecTV and Dish Network but has also signed carriage deals with various cable companies including Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Charter Communications and Cablevision.

REELZCHANNEL moved its headquarters from Los Angeles, Calif., to Albuquerque, New Mexico in early 2009, where Hubbard's KOB television is based.[2]

As of August 2013, approximately 66,739,000 American households (58.44% of households with television) receive Reelz.[3]
