Rai closes Rai Movie, Rai Premium
One of the most important developments, apart from the internal reforms to the organization of public TV, is the decision to eliminate the special-interest channels Rai Movie (canale 24 DTT) and Rai Premium (channel 25 DTT); as is known, the first, as the name says, is dedicated to cinema, Italian and not, while the second is dedicated to the fiction of Italian (but in the course of the years has also presented some films).
The two themes, according to what is revealed should be merged into a single channel, that may become an elusive Rai 6.
This raises also doubts about the future of Rai 4, not so much for its existence as for the changes on the target which it is intended, in the light of the fact that the programming of Rai Movie may fall in part on Rai channels already existing, with the risk that the Rai 4 distance from channel “young” to a channel with a target probably the most adult.
