Earlier this year the Danish government announced major cuts for Denmark's broadcaster DR that will see hundreds loose their jobs and funding decreased by 20 percent until 2021. Today DR announced what channels they are going to close. The money saved will be diverted to a fund that provides production support for other producers. The changes will be implemented in 2020.
DR3 and DR Ultra (similar to BBC Three and CBBC) will "move online".
DRK (similar to BBC Four) will merge into DR2. There will also be a new "cultural" offering online called DR2+.
DR1 and DR Ramasjang (BBC One and Cbeebies) will remain as they are.
Three digital radio stations, P6 Beat, P7 Mix and P8 Jazz, are also closing.
Altogether, DR is moving from six to three TV channels and from eight to five radio stations.
