MGM HD will cease broadcasting from next week – the evening of Thursday 16th January – it has been confirmed on their official Facebook page. The channel is currently available on Sky channel 313.
In the Facebook announcement, they say “It goes without saying that we at MGM HD are very sad to confirm this news, and we would like to send out our heartfelt thanks to all of our (very passionate!) fans for all your comments, praise, and support over these last four years – we hope you’ve enjoyed watching our channel as much as we’ve loved programming it for you!”.
MGM HD launched in December 2009 in joint partnership with British Sky Broadcasting, and was somewhat unique in that it launched only in high definition with no standard definition channel available.
