Licence awarded to Channel M


by David Allen

The Manchester based Channel M has been given the licence to broadcast on BSkyB’s satellite TV service as well as on the Freeview digital TV services, through a local digital multiplex in Manchester.

Channel M is owned by the Guardian Media Group and can already be seen on analogue terrestrial in the city and on Virgin Media cable TV services.

This comes from the decision by the regulator Ofcom to auction off the local digital TV licence as 8 MHz blocks of the spectrum become available for low power transmission.

The next local auction is to be held in Cardiff later on in the month.

Channel M itself produces programming dedicated to the people and city of Manchester, including news, sport, entertainment, lifestyle and music.

It has grown significantly since its launch in 2000.
