Turner in Nuts TV dispute

The TV production company behind Nuts TV has lodged a legal action at the London High Court, citing Turner Broadcasting over unpaid bills. ETV Media Group is suing Turner Entertainment Networks for £600,000 over alleged unpaid monthly production costs.

The writ alleges that ETV Media signed an agreement with Turner in June 2007 to build and equip a London production studio for the Nuts TV channel, and that Turner has failed to pay agreed instalments since July this year.

In October this year Turner announced that Nuts TV would shortly cease broadcasting on the important UK ‘Freeview’ DTT system, and that its place would be taken by CNN. Nuts TV would continue, said Turner, on broadband.

ETV is specifically claiming £612,000 from Turner. ETV says it cannot use the TV facilities for any other purpose.
