ITV is to close Men & Motors to allow ITV to launch ITV1 HD on Sky Digital.

Men and Motors will close on 1 April, the day before ITV1 HD launches. However, the channel will cease broadcasting on Virgin Media a week earlier.

Men and Motors launched on 1 October 1996 as part of Granada Sky Broadcasting and shared transponder space with Granada Plus. ITV took full control of Granada Sky Broadcasting in 2004 and a year later the channel became a free-to-air service and launched on Freeview although it left Freeview less than a year later and was replaced by ITV Play. The channel closes after more than thirteen years on air.
