Landscape channel re-launches

The Landscape Channel has relaunched on UK pay-TV platform BSkyB after a five-year hiatus.

The music channel, which originally launched in 1989, was forced to close in 2003 after it ran out of money. However, the channel, which has re-launched as part of Sky’s Information package, has reappeared with a raft of high-definition instrumental and classical music series.

Chairman Nick Austin said: “We made a number of strategic mistakes the first time round. Now with the benefit of hindsight and a lot of water under the bridge we are getting it right this time.”
