Why does CITV shut down at 9pm every night?


Because they feel there is no demand for the service after 9pm, same with CBBC.
Anyway on Freeview I think it still closes at 6pm?

I dare say most of the childrens channels on Sky don't take much in the way of ad revenue after midnight.

Other kids channels don't shut down at 9. They would hardly loose money if they didn't. This is a Freeview channel so there is more of an audience available. Just show repeats of their programs. The thing is CBBC had/has to shut down at 9pm because it shares/shared bandwidth with BBC 3/4.

We still don't see your point. Why are kids still up after 9pm???


Sometimes when I couldn't sleep as a kid, watched a video/DVD and I'd usually fall asleep during it.

Or the one time my mother had to be rushed into hospital overnight (Epilepsy). The area for kids to take their mind of it had a analogue TV, shame it was overnight so the only thing on was BBC News 24, The Learning Zone or ITV Nightscreen.

I find myself wishing the kids channels DID shut down (the pre-school ones at least), it can be a nightmare getting the younger members of my family to bed, or even letting us change to channel to watch something we want to watch in the evening, when the kids channels are still running and they know there's programmes they want to watch coming up. When I have a nephew and niece obsessed with Paw Patrol and PJ Masks it can be hell, tantrums galore. At least if they closed down you'd be able to say there's nothing else on, so that's that.

Disney Junior is shared with multiple countries, Nick Jr is the most popular and CBeebies DOES shut down.
Anyone who even thinks of talking about channel codes in a thread where I am involved will be apprehended! (not really)
