According to this morning's update from Ofcom, the multiplex operator has acquired a licence for "ABC Shopping" and "Bonanza Bonanza", a general entertainment channel.
While there has not been any confirmation as to what these channels will actually be, it's anticipated that these services will take the two slots on the local TV multiplex reserved for quasi-national TV services.
In previous years, Canis Media, who created Comux, has operated a "Bonanza" channel on satellite as a placeholder service until another channel was ready to take over the slot.
- Meanwhile, local TV test transmissions have been spotted from the Waltham transmitter, serving parts of Nottingham and The Fens, toward Spalding. Notts TV will soon launch via this transmitter and a secondary transmitter site off junction 26 of the M1. Viewers receiving Freeview from Waltham in Derby and Leicester will not be able to receive the local TV service, as the service is restricted in a westerly direction so as not to interfere with digital TV from The Wrekin in Shropshire.
