CNN International to replace Nuts TV early 2009

Nuts TV will closedown on the Freeview platform in early 2009 and will be replaced by CNN International. Nuts TV will become a dedicated broadband and mobile service so will no longer be on Freeview. CNN International will air between 9pm and 1am on Freeview to allow audiences to watch CNN’s European primetime shows. No channel number has been given for CNN International yet. So that means there are at least two channel launches in 2009 planned at the moment – these will be the new channel from Discovery (which will probably replace Bid TV on Freeview) and CNN International (replacing Nuts TV).
