Current TV To Launch in UK With Sky

Al Gore’s Current TV, the channel made up in part with viewer-created clips, will launch in UK and Ireland on the Sky platform… this is its first international launch, since its US debut last year. Not that it has made a big dent here… Yahoo did a deal with Current TV last month to launch an online video service.
Also, this is not the first such channel in UK: MTV last month unveiled its user generated video channel Flux, which we have covered here in the past.
Thisislondon: BSkyB CEO James Murdoch said the channel would reach one in three UK homes. Current TV and Sky are to set up a UK headquarters and appoint British presenters to provide a link between programmes and to front news bulletins. Current’s relationship with Google, which has been pared down in US because of the Yahoo deal, will jump over the pond and will continue in UK.
