German Giga TV to cease broadcasts




The German geek channel Giga TV will cease broadcasts on April 1. It owner Premiere is pulling the plug on the free-to-air channel, which has specialised in news and talk shows about computers and games.

The news was broken by Giga CEO Stephan Borg in his blog on the channels website. Until the final sign-off, the channel will run only repeats and no fresh programming.

Giga was launched in 1998 with the intention to bring television and the web together. The channel was never really successful and went through a number of make-overs. The pay-TV operator Premiere acquired the channel in 2008, but was unable able to turn around the business. All 53 of the channels employees will lose their jobs, though the plan is to keep the website giga.de alive.
