Sky adds The Landscape Channel to line-up

Thursday, August 19th 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Subscribers to Sky's digital TV channels can now unwind to The Landscape Channel.

Sky customers eager to kick back and relax after a hard day can flick on The Landscape Channel, which has returned to digital TV after a seven-year absence.

Landscape launched back in 1987 as a classical and instrumental music channel that screened films of natural and man-made environments from around the world.

Having run out of money in 2003, the channel has now reappeared on Sky, providing content for Information TV, Showcase and Showcase 2, reports Digital Spy.

The broadcaster has also apparently been working on developing high-definition (HD) programmes over the past five years, with a view to launching a separate HD channel in the future.

Chairman of Landscape Nick Austin acknowledged that it made a number of "strategic mistakes" when it was last on air, but said these issues have now been resolved.

"With the benefit of hindsight and a lot of water under the bridge we are getting it right this time," he remarked.

According to Landscape's website, Dr Marvin McMillen from Manhattan's Beth Israel Medical Center has long been prescribing the broadcaster's programmes to major trauma patients in a bid to help them relax.
