buzmuzikThe BuzMuzik channel has closed down, the channel was available from 6.00 am – 3.00 am on Sky channel 372 and Freesat channel 505, and was part of a bouquet of music channels owned by CSC Media.
The closure follows CSC’s purchase in late 2013 of the similar Starz TV service on Sky 371, which had been operating as a standalone channel under the ownership of Cloud One Television Ltd.

The final broadcast of the text-chat matrix on BuzMuzik was on Tuesday 1 April. Programme guide information had suggested the channel would continue broadcasting until 0600 on the morning of Thursday 3 April, but the channel was removed from the Sky and Virgin programme guides in the afternoon of Wednesday 2nd.
The channel continued to transmit off-guide into the early hours of Thursday as initially scheduled.

Programme guide listings seen before the channel’s removal indicated that the station would be replaced by a placeholder movie/entertainment service screening one film a night at 0200 (this being the film that had aired on True Entertainment at 0100), suggesting that True Entertainment +1 was being revived, having earlier run as a placeholder ahead of the launch of True Drama.
