Bravo originally started out life in 1985 on cable tv, and progressed to the Astra satellite in 1993, as part of the Sky multi channels package. It showed classic tv series and films. Today the channel is now an entertainment channel for men, some classic shows and 'lad culture' original programming. Bravo is owned by and operated by Virgin Media Television, formerly Flextech.
