|Owner(s)||Granada Television (known as ITV Studios)
3SixtyMedia is a joint venture production facilities company, based in Manchester and co-owned by Granada Television (now part of ITV Studios) and BBC Manchester. Formed in 2000 and largely based at Granada's Quay Street headquarters, it combines the studio and post production facilities and technical staff of the two broadcasters and aimed to cut operating their costs.
While many programmes, including new ones, are recorded in Manchester for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, such as University Challenge, Countdown and The Jeremy Kyle Show, the future of the company is unclear. Both BBC North and ITV Granada have moved to MediaCity and uses the studios there for many productions. ITV Studios Manchester has also moved production of Coronation Street to a new facility at Trafford Wharf. 3SixtyMedia is expected to keep its identity and will not be dissolved or merged.
