Overview

GMTV has held the licence for the breakfast Channel 3 franchise since 1993, when it outbid the previous 6:00 – 9.25 am Channel 3 licence-holder, TV-am. The first show was broadcast on Friday 1 January 1993 and was presented by Eamonn Holmes and Anne Davies, both have since left since its launch. It was first intended to be called Sunrise Television, but as Sky News's breakfast programming also went by that name (and still does to this day), Sky protested, resulting in the change of name. SMG, owner of two of the three Channel 3 regional licences for Scotland (Scottish Television and Grampian Television) previously owned 25% of the company; however, this stake was purchased by ITV plc for £31 million in 2004. Early shows were much criticised in the press who renamed the show Give Me The Valium . Many of these comments were born out of an unfair comparison to its predecessor Tv-am: However a change of format increased ratings figures. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into ITV. (Discuss) This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...

The station claims to reach approximately 13 million viewers a week, transmitting daily from 6.00 am until the regional Channel 3 franchises (the ITV Network) take over at 9.25 am. Since the switchover is now practically seamless and the station is 'surrounded' on both sides by ITV Network continuity, most viewers perceive GMTV simply as a programme on ITV; however, due to Disney's minority stake in the station, it essentially remains an independent broadcaster with its own news-gathering operation, sales and management teams and in-house production team. Very occasionally, in the event of a major sporting fixture or such-like occurring early in the morning, the ITV Network may seek permission from the regulator, Ofcom, to broadcast during GMTV's airtime, although GMTV always reclaims such time from ITV (normally on the Sunday, following such an event).

GMTV's main rivals include BBC Breakfast (which is more news-oriented), Sky News's Sunrise, and Channel 4's morning schedule (which includes Friends). Until fairly recently, GMTV has been the most watched television channel in it's timeslot. It is now regularly beaten in the ratings by the more serious BBC Breakfast on BBC One. Due to its part-Disney ownership, it also occasionally finds itself in conflict with its own majority owner; for example, it was reported that ITV plc's year-long negotiations to launch a children's channel with Nickelodeon were ultimately thwarted by GMTV, who felt that the viewing figures for its own children's programming would be threatened by such a venture. The plans were scrapped, and when ITV eventually launched the CITV Channel, it placated GMTV by contracting the company to sell the advertising in the channel's airtime (making it the only ITV-owned channel not sold by the in-house advertising sales division). ITV plc has attempted to buy out Disney's stake in GMTV, in order to secure 24-hour control of Channel 3 in England and Wales, but has so far been unsuccessful.

GMTV's programming is designed to reach a large cross-section of the viewing public.

Breakfast time in Channel 3

As a Channel 3 licensee, GMTV also has the right to broadcast during the same slot alongside ITV's digital channels; its sister service, GMTV2, follows the same broadcast slot with mostly children's programming, except at weekends from 9:00 am when Teleshopping takes over. GMTV2 was broadcast on the same channel number as ITV plc-owned digital channel ITV2 until March 16, 2008, where the slot moved to ITV4. The company also has broadcasting rights on the same frequency as ITV3 (and even holds a 'GMTV3' license), but has so far foregone its chance to launch a third station, preferring to sell its airtime to ITV plc, to allow ITV3 to broadcast around the clock.

Most recently, GMTV has acquired a further channel slot in the form of the CITV Channel, whose programming between 6:00 and 9.25 am is simulcasted with that of GMTV's children's output on its other two stations: on GMTV2 throughout the week, and on GMTV1 at weekends. GMTV also sells advertising time for the entire output of the channel. Since its involvement with the CITV Channel, GMTV has adopted CITV branding on all its CITV-simulcast children's output over GMTV1 and GMTV2, in order to simplify the simulcasts, leading to the disappearance of any on-screen reference to GMTV during these times.

Controversy

On 23 April 2007, a BBC Panorama investigation disclosed that callers to GMTV's phone-in competitions may have been defrauded out of around £40 million, because the telephone system operator, Opera Interactive Technology, had determined the winners before the phone lines had closed. GMTV responded by suspending the phone-in quizzes, and while they initially claimed that "it was confident it had not breached regulators' codes", they subsequently terminated their contract with Opera Interactive after their own investigations discovered "irregularities".

Time changes

The channel is usually broadcast from 6:00 – 9:25 am, but has had to change times on several occasions due to live sport events clashing with this timeslot. During the 2002 FIFA World Cup, the channel was moved to a later slot, and on more than one occasion, the channel did not broadcast at all. GMTV is also heavily affected by Formula One races which are live from Asia, which also push GMTV back to a later time - normally it broadcasts on these Sundays from 10:00 am – 12 noon.
