Local TV multiplex goes live in North West England

2.4 million viewers have been added to the local TV coverage area following the launch of the local TV multiplex from the Winter Hill transmitter in Lancashire.

Via three "petals" or beams, three versions of the local TV multiplex are being transmitted, with a version for Manchester, Liverpool and Preston.

Local TV services are not yet on air in the region, but viewers with Freeview who retune will be able to watch temporary channel Bonanza Bonanza on Freeview channel 64 and children's channel POP on channel 75, services which use spare capacity on the local TV multiplex.

The local TV multiplex is being operated by Comux on behalf of the local TV operators. In the North West, Your TV Manchester, Bay TV Liverpool and Your TV Blackpool and Preston are expected to launch on Freeview channel 8 later this year.
