Gems TV ceases broadcasting

Gems TV has ceased broadcasting on Freeview channel 43. The shopping channel was available between 09:45 and 12:45, timesharing with Film4, which is expected to increase its hours in the near future. Gems TV previously also broadcast on channel 44 ("Gems TV1"), but this rather limited evening service was removed last month to allow CNN to start two hours earlier.
