A popular channel on Sky and Virgin Media will shut down for good tonight.
And the fans are not impressed.
24 years after starting out in Great Britain and Ireland, TCM Movies is finally saying goodbye on this side of the pond.
This means that timeshift channel +1 is also active.
In the early years, TCM was one of the few film channels that was available free of charge via satellite and cable.
The program consisted mainly of classic films and westerns.
“I’m not very happy about that,” said one user on Twitter.
“I watch several westerns a week on this channel!”
Another commented: “Just found out #TCM UK is closing down. Sad that it stays like this.”
A third added: “My dad is saddened that the UK TCM channel is closing.”
The channel broadcast on channel 315 on Sky Q, Sky Glass and Sky Stream.
And Channel 415 on Virgin Media.
But on July 6, the plug will be pulled forever.
Owner Warner Bros. Discovery has announced that its other channel, Quest, will now air some classic films in place of TCM cable breaker.
Quest is also available on Freeview, which means more people can access movies previously only available on TCM.
“Thank you for joining us on our journey and for loving classic films as much as we do,” TCM said in a farewell video.
