Audience for Creative Channel Network grows

An exciting new digital television channel is celebrating this week as audience figures grow to over 100,000 per month in less than a year.
The Creative Channel Network, the brainchild of Birmingham based Production Company Definitely Red, showcases the work of artists nationwide through publicly placed screens and over the Internet.
Showing a diverse and entertaining range of short films, animations, documentaries and music videos the channel aims to introduce both up and coming and established artists to new audiences.
Melanie Lee, Managing Director of Definitely Red, said: “We want to give a voice to an industry often overlooked by more conventional channels.
“Everyone from film makers, fashion designers and sculptors are using the network to showcase their work and we are keen for people who have anything they would like to be screened on the channel to get in touch.”
The channel is currently being piloted on eight publicly placed screens in the Birmingham area and can also be watched via the Creative Channel website at
Lee continued: “Through the website we can reach an international audience and have had some of our films reviewed by viewers in America, Russia and Spain.
“We are working very hard to keep the website fresh and exciting with 13 new films being added to the artist gallery this month alone.
“There is something for everyone to enjoy on the channel and we are receiving some very positive feedback,” she added.
The Creative Channel Network is in talks with a further three screen locations in Birmingham, Coventry and Stratford.
