The channels on 11680V are not FTA as I write this - they appear as 'encrypted' on my non-Sky box. Perhaps they're FTV? (I guess like "London Live")

Yeah still some good programs on it though the rugby league one.

I don't think they need to broadcast overnight just through day to about 1-2am is surely enough hours

Further consolidation in the ultra local tv industry

Bay TV Liverpool has gone bust
Big Centre TV in Birmingham has been struggling & has new owners.

Both will become part of the "Made In..." operation & will appear on satellite before the end of the year.

Made in Liverpool launch expected mid October
Made in Birmingham launch expected in early November

A third launch will be Made in Teesside.
