ABC Director of Television Richard Finlayson said recently, “We are planning to launch an iview-only Arts channel. This will be the first of what will probably be a number of IP channels on the iview service.
“This will be a specialist channel aimed at Arts audiences with a curated collection of the best of the ABC’s Arts content.
“It’s an experiment really, but it may well herald a number of other channes to come.
“So we’ll see how it goes.”
This week SBS-owned STUDIO channel announced it would continue to offer Arts via block programming on SBS ONE and its SBS On Demand platform next year after it exits the Foxtel platform.
