City8 was a proposed local television channel in Birmingham that was scheduled to launch in November 2014 but went out of business before that date.[1]


In 2010, Ofcom announced that local TV would be introduced in the United Kingdom.[2]

In May 2012, a round of bidding was held for local TV licences. There were four applicants for the Birmingham area: City TV Broadcasting, Bham TV, Made in Birmingham and YourTV Birmingham. In November 2012, City TV Broadcasting Ltd won the local TV franchise for Birmingham.[3]

On 19 February 2014, the channel's name was changed from City TV to City8 ahead of launch.[4]

On 8 August, City8's owner BLTV went into administration, having been unable to secure sufficient funding for the channel.[5] The licence was transferred to another operator.


City8 intended to broadcast a breakfast show, a music show, a news programme and a sports programme.[6]
