Current TV to sell UK EPG slot

International channel operator Current TV is selling its EPG slot on pay TV platform BSkyB after the News Corp-backed operator dropped the Al Gore-backed channel from its service. Current TV has appointed Canis Media to sell its 183 slot as part of the entertainment package.

The two companies were unable to reach terms to allow it to continue broadcasting and Current will remain on air until a sale is agreed. Canis Media is currently talking to interested parties and has invited offers for the slot, the deadline which is February 2.

“The EPG slot is unencumbered by any contractual liabilities or commitments and is available for immediate sale. The purchaser will be free to make their own arrangements for satellite capacity, uplink and playout,” noted Canis Media in a statement.
