Notts TV launches across the East Midlands on Sky; goes 24/7

UPDATED | Local TV channel Notts TV has launched on Sky today, making the channel available to Sky viewers across the East Midlands TV region on channel 117.

The launch on Sky has given the channel a massive coverage boost, providing full access to the channel in those parts of Nottinghamshire where the service could not be received via Freeview or cable, as well as reaching parts of Derbyshire and Leicestershire for the first time.

Another new development for Notts TV is that it has increased its programming output and is now broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week, bringing local talent, local news and local sport to homes across the county and beyond.

Channel Director Jamie Brindle said:
"The reaction so far has been brilliant, with viewers stopping our presenters in the street to offer congratulations and thousands more showing their support over social media. To celebrate, we’ve got some exciting programming coming up in the next few weeks, including the premiere of Nottingham documentary, This Girl Can, a new breakfast show format, and a brand new series of popular business show, Working Week.”

The channel has been on air since 27th May 2014 and is the product of a consortium involving the Nottingham Post, Nottingham Trent University, Confetti Media Group and Inclusive Digital.

Notts TV can be manually tuned in by Sky viewers outside the East Midlands, but it is not available via Freesat.
