Estuary TV, which is dedicated to the North Lincolnshire and East Riding of Yorkshire area, will be broadcast on Freeview Channel 8 from Tuesday 26th November.
Working very closely with independent television producers and the local community, the channel will be delivering a host of quality programming, ranging from entertainment, chat shows and sports to news, current affairs and historical, to over 370,000 homes.
This is the first local television channel to be launched under the government's new local TV licences, with cities like Leeds, Nottingham and London following in late 2013 and 2014. The channel itself was formerly known as Channel 7, and was broadcast on Virgin Media 879. It was first established in 1997, making it the longest running local television channel in the country.
"This is a great opportunity for people to engage with us and learn about what we can offer and how we can work together."
The channel will launch with an all new local news service, which is being set up and headed by local Journlaist and Broadcaster, Emma Lingard. Martin Samuels has been brought in to manage programme development.
Estuary TV will also work with local businesses and provide them with advertising opportunities through broadcast advertisements, sponsorship and product placements, as well as ways to be involved with the programming itself.
