Title Pages: Add the Name of the Network to TV Show Pages

Can we add a label that list what network aired the TV movie or special. In the old days there was CBS, NBC and CBS.. Nowadays we have cable networks that make their own movies. Some like Hallmark put their logo in the poster. Can it be added so it's easier to tell who aired it?
Thanks.

Good idea, as long as it is not limited to US networks.

Thanks for the suggestion.  This is somewhat already supported for the US, although with some limitations.  For example on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5296406/ see the red highlighting below:



For things available on Amazon for streaming, for example see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5712554/




Even for shows not on Amazon, you should be able to see next / recent episodes as long as they are still in production. For example from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5675620/



Finally, for all shows whether old or new and worldwide (depending upon what has been added by contributors) each TV-series page has a company credits page which includes networks and distributors.  For example, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0411008/companycredits

A suggestion for IMDB: Add the name of the network the show airs on to TV Show pages. With so many different ways for a new show to become available to the viewing public, we could really use that information. New shows can air on regular TV networks, cable networks, subscription networks, Netflix, Hulu, CBS All Access, or any number of other streaming sites. If you don't have explicit information telling you where to find a given show, it can be a chore trying locate it.

When I want to check out a new show, I first look it up on IMDB. But after I've done that, I almost always have to look it up on Wikipedia so that I know which network the show will air on. Sometimes a show won't even have a Wikipedia page, in which case, I have to start doing Google searches for articles, hoping to find one that will tell me where to find the show.

Aside from this one crucial piece of information, everything else someone needs to know about a new show is already on the show's IMDB page. Why not add the network info, too, and keep viewers from having to look anywhere else for it?

It is not always readily apparent to me what network a series is on when searching the IMDb.com website. Would you please emphasize this information for every series listed?

That would be wonderful- one of my pet peeves as well.  I see a TV show and then can never find what channel it's on.  I end up leaving IMDb and googling the show.

they only seem to have the tv schedule if the show is scheduled in the next few days.  Under the "More" pulldown menu, there is a tv listing, it would be nice to have the network listed there.  As it is, you have to look under Company Credits, which isn't intuitive to me.  I just looked up Stranger Things, and it took me a while to find it plays on Netflix.  
Thanks for the tip of adding /tvschedule to the URL.  but again, that only seems to work if a show is in the middle of it's season.
