Local TV for Freeview?
March 20, 2008
Over 120 MPs have shown their support for plans to introduce a UK wide local channel on Freeview, by joining the United for Local Television coalition. The designated local television network on the Freeview platform, Channel 6, could carry local news, programming, advertising and networked public service content. United for Local Television put forward that local TV would be more focused on local content than current regional output on the BBC and ITV.
