New music TV station launched

LAVA will be broadcast on SKY 378 from Monday, March 29, and Mushroom TV is hoping to repeat the success of Channel AKA (formerly Channel U) within a new genre.

The channel will cover all rock sub-genres and will feature unsigned acts from around the UK.

Both Lava and sister station Channel AKA have a format that allows the viewer to vote for the tracks they want to hear on the channel, via a voting system.
