---------- ABN and EBN to be taken away
(source: SATCO DX)

As from tomorrow, January 12th, the regional business channels, EBN
(European Business News) and ABN (Asian Business News) are to cease as
individual channels. On Monday, a merger will be effected bringing both
channels under the rule of CNBC. All information from the three channels
will be put towards a new channel called 'CNBC'. We'll have to wait and
see if EBN remains in the Sky Multichannels package - if not, Sky will
have some free air time to cook up another thematic channel.
