A new home for Vintage Music to launch early 2019

Fans of older hit music can look forward to a new music television channel that's being prepared for launch.

View TV Group have confirmed to a516digital that plans to turn their Vintage Music webstream into a fully-fledged television channel are advanced and that a launch on Sky, Virgin Media and Freeview is planned during 2019, beginning with a launch on Sky, currently earmarked for the end of January 2019.

The company previously provided the now defunct Vintage TV a webstream facility via its streaming division Kapang before the channel went into administration. Working together with creditors of the former channel, View TV Group intends to launch Vintage Music as a pure music video channel.

Vintage Music however will have no association with the former Vintage TV channel. Administrators of Vintage TV are currently in the process of selling off the channel's remaining assets, including the channel's library of original content.

Ahead of the launch of the TV service, View TV Group have already launched the Vintage Music brand in the north-east of England following a rebrand of their FM station in County Durham last week. A version of Vintage Music Radio tailored for national audiences is also due to take up a slot on DAB in London soon. Vintage Music covers the 70s, 80s and 90s.

UPDATE 30/01/2019: The service is delayed. View TV Group has been contacted for more information.
