STV eyes BBC3 slot
December 22, 2015
Broadcaster STV looks set to win its campaign to secure a more prominent slot on Freeview for its local TV stations.
The company runs local TV stations covering Glasgow and Edinburgh and is due to open more. Its stations are currently on Channel 23 – but English local TV stations are on Channel 8.
Trade body Digital UK is consulting on moving the Scottish stations after BBC3 becomes an online-only operation.
The consultation could also lead to a slightly more prominent slot for the Gaelic service BBC Alba.
