Local TV

It has been announced that the contract for local TV has been awarded to Made TV ltd. In their case for both Bristol & Cardiff .

What a the chances that they will be available on Virgin. Or will freeview be the way to see them ?

Re: Local TV

Thank you - Made in Cardiff TV gets less interesting if it is covering such a wide area.
The spin I saw ( no I do not recall were ) seemed to implie it was Cardiff only.

Re: Local TV

From OFCOM's Statement on licencing local television:

1.5 The L-DTPS licence is only for a service carried on this local multiplex, i.e. on digital terrestrial television (DTT). L-DTPS licensees may wish to distribute their services on satellite and/or on cable and/or online, subject to commercial negotiations. A separate Television Licensable Content Service (TLCS) licence would be required for any such simulcasts.

So, in other words, carriage on cable is subject to commercial agreement AND the TV company going to the additional expense of obtaining an additional licence for cable distribution.

So in Virgins case the answer I suspect is NO

Re: Local TV

City TV will be on the air via freeview next year. The BBC is contributing £25-40 million towards capital costs of building the TV infrastructure and up to £5 million a year over three years to acquire local content.

Re: Local TV

They can't its been forced on them. Someone feels that local TV will be the solution to everything, whereas in reality it will be a complete waste of money and will fail just like all previous attempts at local TV have

I would guess it is the money the BBC has had to spend annually on the digital switch over for the past 10 odd years. which now switchover is complete is spare.

Re: Local TV

Guardian.co.uk is reporting:

Quote:
''Ofcom has delayed a decision on awarding all the remaining local TV licences and now expects to wrap up the process by the end of February, meaning a likely three-month delay for an announcement on the lucrative London franchise. This delay means the local TV licence for the London area, which caters for 4.3 million homes, is expected to be awarded by the end of February. The five London bidders had been told informally by Ofcom to expect a decision in November.

Ofcom said the delay had nothing to do with problems over the Nottingham and Sheffield licences which emerged last week.

This means the Newcastle bid is likely to be decided by the end of December, with Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester by the end of January. The Leeds, Liverpool, London and Preston bids are now scheduled to be awarded by the end of February.''
