Sky to close Bravo in New Year

Bookmark and Share

by Janet Harris

Both Bravo and Bravo 2, which focus on male interests, are being closed on 1 January 2011.

The move follows Sky’s £160 million acquisition of the Living TV Group, which was formerly known as Virgin Media TV.

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.
