|Late Night Live on That's Manchester|
Programmes started up at 9pm with a news bulletin. Alongside the channel's launch, That's Manchester's website has gone live providing viewers with basic information about the new service, although much about the new channel is not known.
The channel had until midnight tonight to launch, according to its Ofcom licence, which was issued earlier this month.
The new channel was configured on Freeview on Friday, since when viewers have been able to retune Freeview to gain access to the new service (which broadcasts on UHF channel 56 for manual tuning purposes). YouView boxes in the area have added the channel automatically to the channel list.

- The multiplex carrying Movies4Men+1, Heart, Capital, Fire Hit TV and Chart Show TV across Manchester has been missing important data for the past few weeks, meaning that TVs have lost programme information, or even all of the affected services during a retune (or have seen the channels moved to the 800s). If you have lost access to these services, a retune should now restore them to the correct channel numbers with the current programme information following a fix that was undertaken late on Sunday evening following reports on internet forums.
