The article reports that BSkyB will launch its second arts channel. The existing Sky Arts channel will be split into Sky Art 1 which will focus on contemporary and cult programming and Sky Art 2 focusing on opera, classical music, fine art and dance. It was said that BSkyB's decision to make such arts coverage was due to a review of public service broadcasting that is being prepared by policymakers.
