Re: Local TV

It seems as though thus far this will be the only local TV channel which will appear on Virgin Media (I'm not including the Grimsby local channel which has been on VM for many years).

Re: Local TV

Reading the article (dated May 2012) it suggests that VM takes a different view as "Associate Counsel for Virgin Media Ronee Isaacson’s letter states:

“Virgin Media is strongly of the view that by far the best way of delivering local content is through an ‘App’. Virgin Media believes that this method of delivery is the appropriate way for a new innovative service such as this to be delivered. This is primarily because it enables the content provider to deliver richer more interactive experiences which are more engaging and in tune with where the market is developing...

"In the event that Local programming and content is delivered as an application Virgin Media would support reserving one slot on the first page of the applications area of the TiVo user interface alongside (for example) BBC iPlayer, YouTube etc an alternative to a linear EPG position.”


Although I do accept that later in the article VM does say that it is "in favour of adding a local news channel to its EPG" possibly within the news section of the EPG, on the grounds that not everyone has Tivo.

I think 'Made in Leeds' is the 1st broadcaster to confirmed that it will be on Virgin Media.

I hope GTV my local area Channel will be on Virgin Media but you ever know what STV will do. Sky viewers still cant view STV +1 or STV HD yet.

Re: Local TV

Local TV outside England not going to be on Freeview Channel 45 - but lower.

The Freeview web site has confirmed that Film4 +1 will launch on Freeview Channel 45 on August 27th.

But that was set to be use for Local TV Channels in Scotland and Wales.

No word yet on the new channel number for Local TV in Scotland and Wales yet but we at Media Boy HQ thinks Local TV outside England and Ireland will launch on Freeview Channel 34 or 41.
