City8 was a proposed local television channel in Birmingham, that was previously scheduled to launch in November 2014.
In 2010, Ofcom announced that local TV would be introduced in the United Kingdom.
In May 2012, a round of bidding was held for local TV licences. There were 4 applicants for the Birmingham area: City TV Broadcasting, Bham TV, Made in Birmingham and YourTV Birmingham. In November 2012, City TV Broadcasting Ltd won the local TV franchise for Birmingham.
On 19 February 2014, the channel's name was changed from City TV to City8 ahead of launch.
On 8 August, City8's owners BLTV went into administration, having been unable to secure sufficient funding for the channel. The licence is expected to be transferred to another operator.
According to one of its videos it says that it has announced a breakfast show, a music show, a news programme and a sports programme presented by a man named Tom.
