The Hits ceases broadcasting

Music channel The Hits has ceased broadcasting. The station has been available on Freeview since the platform launched back in October 2002, and has stuck to the format of playing music videos (as opposed to music documentaries or general entertainment programming) ever since. As a result, it was one of the UK's most popular music stations. It will be replaced at 19:00 tonight by 4Music, a new channel from Channel 4.
