See that Channel Four has bought out Bauer Media and has taken full control (albeit with licensed TM channels) of the Box Network today
I'd have thought this would have been a strange move. Are music channels not dying off in general?
There was another music channel sale last month, with the sale of the former CSC music channels by Sony to Trace.
The fact that there has been 2 transactions involving music channels in less than a month shows that music channels aren't over quite yet (if there was no value or future left in them they would have probably been closed down rather than sold).
There's also a new music channel due to launch this month, Vintage Music (by View TV Group, who previously ran the Vintage TV online stream).
