Both Bravo and Bravo 2, which focus on male interests, are being closed on 1 January 2011.
Sky decided to scrap Bravo, which has been running for 25 years, because it was too similar to Sky1.
However viewers of Bravo’s shows such as Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Chuck, Dog the Bounty Hunter, TNA Wrestling and Sun, Sea and A & E, need not worry too much as they will be moved onto Sky’s channels.
Full details of where Bravo’s shows will be re-homed will be released in due course.
Sky has also announced that Channel 5 may terminate its five-year contract with Sky News earlier that the expected end-date of 2012.
Channel 5’s owner Richard Desmond wants the channel to focus on entertainment news and is in talks with other news providers over a potential supply deal.
