Bubble bursts for music channel


by David Allen

With so many channels dedicated to music on satellite TV, it is a wonder that more channels haven’t got into trouble in the advertising downturn, but so far the number of channels broadcasting has remained constant apart from the one - Bubble Hits.

The music channel known as Bubble was launched in 2006 and could be found on both Sky and Freesat until it suddenly disappeared without a trace, along with the Bubble website, leaving fans with nowhere to go for information.

It turns out that the channel has been struggling for a while, with revenues falling from advertising the future looked bleak for the channel and with costs rising it was only a matter of time before the inevitable happened.

One of the co-founders, James Hyland mentioned that Bubble Hits was costing them money to run, and with no advertising coming in the plug had to be pulled.
