Merger and closure

On 2 November 1990, British Satellite Broadcasting and Sky Television merged, as well as Galaxy and Now channels were closed, but at first the Power Station survived, gaining a "British Sky Broadcasting" suffix on its logo.[2]

The Power Station eventually ceased broadcasting at around 4.00am on 8 April 1991, with the final programme on the channel was an episode of Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot, which was aired during Swing Shift.[3] At 6.00am, channel 4 for BSB viewers became Sky Movies, a subscription-based channel and it was given free to BSB viewers for one month if they also subscribed to The Movie Channel.
