ZDFkultur is a digital TV channel, run by ZDF. It was launched on 7 May 2011, replacing ZDFtheaterkanal. It mainly broadcasts music shows, such as Later... with Jools Holland, pop concerts and series from the ZDF archive, but also movies and plays. On 1 May 2012, a high-definition simulcast of ZDFkultur (ZDFkultur HD) was launched on digital satellite.[2][3] On 22 February 2013, ZDF director Thomas Bellut announced that ZDFkultur will close in the near future, due to cost-saving measures at ZDF.[4][5][6] The channel council agreed Bellut's proposal on 8 March 2013.[7]
