Loaded TV is a British television channel created as a spin-off from the popular men’s magazine Loaded. It was launched on 26 November 2012 and is streamed live on the Loaded TV website. The channel had also previously broadcast during the evenings on Controversial TV.

Loaded TV was launched by Paul Baxendale-Walker (also known as Paul Chaplin) who purchased SuperBike and Loaded magazines after Vitality Publishing went into administration in April 2012.[1]

Production[edit]

The majority of shows are produced in house at the extensive Loaded TV studios in Hersham, Surrey.

There are however some notable acquisitions on the channel. Marshal's Law, for example, is a comedy produced by Telly Juice.[2]

On 10 December 2012 it was announced that Loaded TV would be partnering with Frank Maloney to show free-to-air boxing on the channel.[3]

Ratings[edit]

First week ratings suggested that Loaded TV had viewing figures above those of more established UK satellite names such as Fox News, achieving a weekly reach of 148,000.[4]

Acquisition & Mobile App[edit]

On the 18 June 2014, an announcement on the official Loaded TV website stated that Loaded TV had been acquired by OOHYEAH, the publishing arm of Zip magazine. [5]

The statement also announced the development of a Loaded TV mobile App for iOS devices which was developed by Jason Hadjioannou, the editor of Zip magazine. [6]
