8TV closes the news and stays only with canned programming

8TV still in 2019 with the will to abandon their live programs & # 39; s and becomes only a channel of canned programming. In this way, the two informative programs of the chain, & # 39; 8 a day & # 39 ;, by Jordi Armenteras and & # 39; La nit a 8TV & # 39 ;, by Pol Marsà, will disappear, according to the progress of El Nacional and the ARA of Chain Sources, although they warn that the decision is still not definitive.

In recent times, 8TV has reduced its own programming, in accordance with the will of the owners, the Godó group, to ensure that the chain no longer loses money.
