Chart Show TV takes control over Flaunt, Amp & Scuzz

BSkyB has handed over the running of its three ill-fated music channels to a rival music TV company. The three channels launched around 18 months ago as an attempt to take on Emap, which was then challenging the market leadership of music video colossus MTV after launching a range of music channels based on its magazine brands, including Q, Smash Hits and Kerrang. The three channels have failed to dent the dominance of MTV. As a result of today's agreement, Chart Show Channels - which runs Chart Show TV, the Vault and B4 on the Sky Digital service - will take over the day to day running of Sky's music offerings. While Sky will retain ownership, Chart Show will advise on editorial content and take over the operation of the channels. In return, from the beginning of next year Sky will take responsibility for selling advertising on the three Chart Show channels alongside a portfolio of other music brands, including Emap's channels
