Channel 4 announces plans for a new comedy and entertainment channel called E4 Extra.

Channel 4 has confirmed that it will launch a brand new channel called E4 Extra later this month.

The station will feature a lineup of scripted and unscripted programming in the genres of comedy and entertainment, with shows in the schedule including Batwoman, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, Ninja Warrior Japan, Undercover Boss USA, The Big Bang Theory, The Inbetweeners and Derry Girls.

E4 Extra will replace 4Music on Freeview, Virgin Media, Sky, Freesat and Youview, while 4Music will become a full-time music channel, replacing Box Hits on Sky, Virgin Media and Freesat.

Karl Warner, head of youth and digital at C4, explained: "4Music started life as a music channel, but it has changed over time in line with audience demands offering a blend of E4 flavoured comedy and entertainment.

"So E4 Extra feels like a natural evolution, strengthening the E4 brand and optimising the content mix between the channels.

"Going forward, E4 will hero large-scale reality and popular factual, whilst seamlessly partnering with E4 Extra where viewers can find scripted US favourites, comedy and entertainment.

"With E4 branded shows already driving a significant proportion of viewers to All 4, streaming fans will now have an even broader offer from the E4 family."

E4 Extra launches at 7am on Wednesday, June 29.
