The test broadcasts have appeared on channels 791-793 on a new local TV multiplex transmitted from the Belmont transmitter on UHF channel 27.
Channel 793 is currently the test channel for the new local TV channel Estuary TV.
|Official core coverage area (Ofcom)|
a516digital is hearing tonight that the tests from the Comux-operated multiplex are currently being received outside of the core coverage area in Lincoln and along the Lincolnshire coastline. If this doesn't change ahead of the official launch on the 26th November, the new service will also be receivable from Lincoln and Louth across to Mablethorpe, but at a lower signal strength requiring a suitable aerial.
Joining Estuary TV will be two additional, but currently unknown TV services in the future. These two additional channels will also be carried wherever else in the UK local TV launches, as a way of helping fund the operation of a local TV multiplex.
Estuary TV will also launch a local TV service for Scarborough in 2014 under the name "Yorkshire Coast TV".
