Made in Cardiff is the tenth local TV station to launch in under a year; a process that was started in Grimsby last November and has also seen local channels launch in Belfast, Brighton, Bristol, Glasgow, London, Norwich, Nottingham and Sheffield.
Made in Cardiff will broadcast local news and magazine programmes of interest to the local community. Cable and satellite viewers will need to wait a little longer for the channel - Made in Cardiff has now confirmed it will join Virgin Media on the 21st October (channel 159) and Sky on 24th November 2014 (channel 134).
