YourTV was a television channel owned by Fox Networks Group, a unit of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International. It began broadcasting on 1 October 2015 in the United Kingdom and Ireland.[1]

History[edit]

On 3 September 2015, Fox International Channels announced they were going to launch a new, free-to-air channel in the UK.[2] YourTV promised "sensational real-life stories, irresistible experiences and thrilling tales".

The channel launched on 1 October 2015 on Freeview, YouView, Freesat and Sky. It launched on Virgin Media on channel 218 on 21 July 2018. However in 2019, Disney decided to consolidate YourTV's programming into the main Fox channel's schedule, [3] with the channel closing down at 12pm on 27 September 2019.

Former programming[edit]

The last shows to be shown on YourTV were Sea Patrol and Body of Proof (with the first episode of Body of Proof season two being the very last programme scheduled between 11am - 12pm)
