Two of ITV's micro regions serving Kent and Sussex are merging into one. Technical changes are scheduled for 1st March 2012. Satellite recordings of ITV in the affected region will need to be reset, as one video stream will be removed.
There have been no recent variations in the schedules apart from some local advertising. The news bulletin for Kent and Sussex was merged into a single Meridian Tonight edition at 6pm, with an opt-out remaining for news from the South East of England during this edition.
Apart from that, ITV Meridian Kent & Sussex satellite viewers on Sky and Freesat will have their receivers automatically pointed to the merged micro region, with no user intervention required.
