Weeks after revealing record annual ratings for 2013, UKTV has announced its intention to create a new headquarters for its 250 staff.
The network of ten channels spans both free-to-air and pay-TV and is available through Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media, BT, TalkTalk, YouView, plus direct on-demand digital services.
UKTV’s full stable of channels are now available on Virgin TV Anywhere and its network of pay-TV channels are available on Sky on Demand and Sky Go. In addition, it has announced seven-day catch-up services for Yesterday and Really which joined flagship Dave on YouView and within the last few weeks extended its relationship with Sky, Virgin and YouView.
In creating its new base, UKTV will work collaboratively with PENSON, one of Europe’s leading and most recognised interior design and architecture studios. “10 Hammersmith Grove will be a ground-breaking facility for UKTV,” explained UKTV chief executive, Darren Childs.
“The new development increases the size of our current office and gives us the opportunity to create an inspirational working space fit for a broadcaster with a commitment to technology, imagination and the future of media. Technology will be at the heart of our progressive new workspace, and it will give everyone at UKTV the freedom to work creatively and collaboratively.”
