Local TV

The roll-out of local TV in the UK has been completed. Where available, they broadcast on Freeview/YouView channel 7 or 8 depending where you are, with some stations also carried online and through Sky and cable TV.

Here you will find where local TV stations are available and how to receive their services, 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, Sony Movies+1 (channel 50; 2200-0600), TruTV (channel 68), Sony Crime+1 (channel 69; 2100-0500), Tiny Pop (channel 207; 0600-2200) and POP Max (channel 208; 0500-2100) are available as bonus channels that piggyback on the local TV signal.
