CBM was a potential television channel owned by the East Midlands company, CBM Media, to be broadcast in the United Kingdom. It was to be carried on Freeview on multiplex D using the slot now filled by Ideal World. The channel was to provide business news from Bloomberg (including a daily 5am-10am simulcast), independent movies and minor sports to anyone with a Freeview receiver.

Its placeholder, originally named "Ch 22" was added from Freeview's launch in 2002 and was expected to host Turner Classic Movies. However, from May 1, 2003, the placeholder was re-named "CBM" and a test transmission banner was shown, informing viewers "New Service Launching Soon!". However, this screen was shown until early August 2003, when the plug was pulled on the channel, and all EPG and placeholder details were removed.

Termination of contract

On 8 August, 2003, Crown Castle (now National Grid Wireless) being the owner of the multiplex, terminated CBM's broadcasting contract, stating that CBM Media were having trouble "reaching strategic milestones", and "no movement had occurred in the channel's launch" [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/tv_and_radio/3134895.stm] .Crown Castle then anticipated that the slot was to be filled up by timeshare broadcasters, each having a certain amount of time on air. This was abolished in April 2004, when the 24-hour shopping channel, Ideal World, filled the channel 22 spot [http://www.dttboxes.co.uk/news/aprjun2004.html] .
