Local TV is currently rolling out across the UK. The services are found on Freeview and YouView channel 7 or 8 depending where you are in the UK.


LOCAL TV LOCATIONS
including Freeview, Sky and Virgin Media channel information

Notes:
  • Local TV on Freeview is broadcast at a lower signal strength than the main national services, often restricting coverage to the cities/towns the channels target rather than the wider region.
  • Bonus channels: If you are in an area with local TV on Freeview, True Crime (channel 60), True Movies (channel 74) and Kix (channel 127) are available as bonus channels that piggyback on the local TV signal.

Listing last reviewed 23/02/2017. The information shown here is based on information supplied by the relevant broadcasters, platform operators and/or Ofcom and published in good faith. If you have an update, please use the contact option at the foot of the page.
