Local TV channel Made in Cardiff has cut the number of original programmes it had planned to broadcast in future.

It was awarded a licence to broadcast based on a commitment to provide 37 hours a week of local programming, increasing to 44 hours in its second year, and 51 hours in year three.

Regulators have approved a request to maintain the current minimum of 37 hours a week in future years.

The channel will celebrate its first year of broadcasting on 15 October.

Not as lucrative a deal as they thought I suspect. The local programming I have seen has been beyond dire....

Re: Local TV

Don't think I've ever looked at my local TV - preferred the BonanzaBonanza when they were testing the freeview mux.

A whole mux for what?
Subsidised committee designed local TV with vanishingly small viewing figures

Re: Local TV

I think local TV could work quite well if it was run by people with a bit of imagination.

The local channel that used to broadcast here about 15 or so years ago was run by amateurs and was excruciatingly boring.

If the new services are like that, they will never make any money. Unless they can get their broadcasts to be as interesting and professional as the BBC and ITV regional programmes, only the few diehards are going to tune in.

What I'm saying is that it doesn't have to be.

As things stand, however, you are perfectly correct!

The thing is OB how much TV do people want to watch? You'd need to be glued to your set 24/7 to watch all the stuff that's out there, and it's been said numerous times on here, I think most people would rather have less mind numbing drivel channels, in fact imo just less channels, and more quality than all the rubbish we currently have.

Re: Local TV

I see that the 'Made in' local TV channels will be filling the substantial gaps in their local output with CBS Reality content, thereby boosting the reach of the channel.

Local TV would get a far bigger audience if it took programming from CBS Action to replace the local content.

They announced this "exciting new content" a while ago, without being specific. Now I can see why they held back the details.
