I wonder what they mean by "creative hub" anyway... seeing as they mainly commission content. The only things they create themselves are their promos/trails/marketing/social media.
Ever wondered why traditionally most independent production companies are based in the soho/fitzrovia area of London? That's because Channel 4 started in Charlotte Street and so all the new companies supplying it gravitated to the area.
I suspect that's the idea behind these 'hubs', Channel 4 provide the hub, to attract the creative industry to those areas. It's not channel 4 creating things, they'll commission from their 4 bases
Also as the article says the plan for Horseferry Road is to rent out office space to production companies, presumably that will be the case in the other hubs
