- Areas where there is a suitable, spare frequency to transmit the service on Freeview to viewers in the respective town or city
- Areas where there has been interest from an organisation to run a local TV service.

The frequencies used for local TV are officially called "interleaved spectrum" - frequencies that aren't in use by another transmitter in range located amidst the frequencies used by the transmitters that are in range of the city. Usually, the frequencies are only clear for local TV services in a small area, which is why many local TV services only have a limited range.
