Channel U was named as one of the outlets in which is used to promote violence in a report by the Observer into the gang warfare that is getting out of control in London. The story comes from a police report obtained which doesn't name Channel U, but police are said to be concerned at how it is glamorising the culture. Last year Channel U was fined £18,000 by Ofcom for 'repeated and sustained' breaches of 'sexually explicit material'. The director of Channel U goes on to defend the station and reveals that they don't show a lot of the videos that get sent which glorify guns, but with the internet and other outlets they are easily available. Police recently obtained footage from the Streets Incarcerated DVD which featured arguments with local officers.
