1994 (Prelaunch)

Starz Encore Family was originally intended to be called Tweens, before the network announced a naming contest in 1994 to allow the public to decide a name for the channel, which would end up being WAM!: America's Youth Network.

WAM!: America's Youth Network


WAM! 1994

In September 1994, Encore launched WAM!: America's Youth Network, along with True Stories & Drama and Action as the last of its original seven multiplex channels. Note that WAM serves as an acronym for "What Adults are Missing".



In 1997, "youth" was changed to "kidz" and the font of the slogan was changed.
