Channel 9, a general entertainment channel from Bangladesh has replaced NTV on the Sky Digital platform.
The channel launched on Saturday 14th April, ending NTV’s four-year presence in the UK. It is not known why NTV has closed down at this moment in time but the buzz about the takeover started earlier this year when NTV broadcast the Bangla Premier League games in February. Channel 9 was also the official partner for the Bangla Premier League in Bangladesh.
Channel 9 has replaced all NTV programming in the UK and the EPG has been changed to Channel 9 UK.
Channel 9 is a fairly new channel in Bangladesh. It only went on-air earlier this year ahead of the Bangla Premier League.
Channel 9 is free-to-air on Sky Digital channel 834.
