Kent County Council's internet TV channel, Kent TV, which is run by Ten Alps, is to be axed.
Launched in 2007 for an initial investment of £1.4 million (E1.6m) and had annual running costs of £600,000. The service aimed to cover a range of topics of interest to residents and visitors to the county. Critics said it was non-essential and should not be paid for by council tax.
The Kent council leader, Paul Carter, said the channel was no longer a priority in “different and difficult economic times”.
