Sky Real Lives, Sky Real Lives +1, Sky Real Lives 2 and Sky Real Lives HD have all ceased broadcasting and have been removed from the Sky and Virgin Media EPGs.
Sky had previously announced the closure of these channels so they can concentrate on providing other services.
Sky Real Lives will close later this year.
In a report on C21Media a Sky spokesman is quoted as saying “in light of our strategy of doing fewer things better, we have begun a consultation with staff about the planned closure of Sky Real Lives. By focusing content investment on those channels that offer greater reach and exposure, we believe we can better meet customer demands”.
C21Media say “Sky is currently in discussion with the channel’s staff with a view to shuttering the net this summer, in a bid to focus on its flagship entertainment channels, Sky1 and Sky2”.
