In 2015, with ''Impact Wrestling'' ending its run on the network, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork thanks to an executive fallout between TNA and Viacom]], the end of the ''Video Game Awards'', and the loss of many syndicated rerun programs, Spike decided to tone it down a bit with a rebrand that's meant to be more inclusive to women. A UK version of the channel was launched later that spring, with local programming from [[Creator/ChannelFive Channel 5]] (which is also owned by Viacom). Among other things, it is the first conventional TV channel in Britain to show ''Series/BreakingBad'', which had previously only been available via Creator/{{Netflix}} or on disc.

In 2003, the network title was completely changed to Spike TV, or simply Spike as it is called now. The name change was delayed a little from a lawsuit by director Creator/SpikeLee, who claimed that viewers would associate the network with him. Unsurprisingly, the Spike network won the case. It did set up an awkward situation where a party at the Magazine/{{Playboy}} Mansion celebrating the new network had to have censor bars and bleeping all over the place to remove all mentions of "Spike" until they got their issues ironed out with Mr. Lee. ''[[Wrestling/WWERaw Raw]]'' stuck around for a while but went back to its original home on the Creator/USANetwork due to problems between Wrestling/{{WWE}} and Viacom, causing Spike to fill the ProfessionalWrestling void with the [[Wrestling/{{TNA}} competition]]... and ''Series/{{CSI}}'' reruns.
