EPG 878 (ITN Radio) will also go as well then, and presumably all the other platforms they have news on, digital raido, PDAs etc.
Who actually owns Newsdirect (the London radio station)? Presumably that's fairly safe. Anyone know how it fares in the RADAR figures? I always thought it would be far more sensible to have Newsdirect on the Sky EPG
rather than a radio version of the ITN News Channel.
Its a bit of a shame really as in terms of presentation etc. it was a nice channel - if they'd had a decent amount of money they could have put up some decent competition to BBC + Sky, but ITN have always been in such a mess as a result of ITV when it first started everyone was already predicting failure.
As Asa says it'll be very interesting to see how they close it - can't see them going up to 23:59 on New Year's Eve somehow, I imagine it'll just slip away someday soon with little publicity outside the likes of Mediaguardian.
Don't lets forget a lot of people will probably lose their jobs as a result of this too.
