Fielding to launch Paranormal Channel
Television paranormal guru Yvette Fielding is launching her own channel, she has revealed.

The former Blue Peter presenter - who has spent recent years hunting ghosts for Living TV's Most Haunted - said the channel would begin broadcasting on Sky on June 9.

The Paranormal Channel is operated by Monster Pictures Limited, a company owned by Fielding and Karl Beattie, her cameraman husband.

"We are putting on air, on June 9, the very first paranormal channel in Great Britain," said Fielding, speaking on last night's Paul O'Grady Show.

"[It will be] available on Sky [and feature] anything from Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, UFOs, the Bermuda Triangle, through to ghosts. We are putting it on 24 hours a day, so just tune in and enjoy."

Paul Mady, who has been developing the channel for Monster Pictures, said it was looking for carriage on other TV services, though talks are at an early stage. Initially it will be available as a free-to-view channel through satellite only.

Mady told Digital Spy that the channel would feature original programming from Fielding's Antix Productions as well as recent and older archive material.

"It is very much about covering the whole genre, independent of what they are doing for LivingTV and ITV," he said. The channel will initially air blocks of repeated programming.

"As we build up a following we will increase the hours of new programming and increase original programming."

The channel's position in the Sky electronic programme guide - which it expects to be in the entertainment section - will be confirmed in May.
