HOTLINE: ITV closes its Channels sales division

ITV has closed its Channels sales division, intensifying speculation that its Granada Sky Broadcasting joint venture channels will shortly either be sold or shut. The division handled airtime sales for the Plus and Men & Motors channels, which launched in 1997 as part of a suite of joint ventures between Granada and BSkyB. It has now been disbanded with its responsibility absorbed into the main ITV Sales division.
