Consultation: Local TV licensing – provisional decision not to advertise or re-advertise certain local TV licences
If following consultation, the decision is upheld, there will be no possibility of a local television station for Peterborough. Which in any case was not included in the original list.
This process releases Comux, the operator of the transmission infrastructure for local TV, from its current obligation to build the transmission infrastructure in these specified locations.
Ofcom consider that continuing to require the extension of the local TV transmission network to these locations or substitute areas as previously planned, would have an adverse impact on the economic viability of the local TV sector as a whole.
The document explains in detail the full reasoning behind Ofcoms' provisional decision.
Ofcom invite interested or affected parties to comment on Ofcom’s provisional decision by 1 June 2018.
