YourTV wins Manchester local TV licence

YourTV, backed by former BBC chairman Michael Lyons among others, has secured UK regulator Ofcom’s licence to provide a local TV channel for the Manchester region.

YourTV, which lost its bid to operate the licence for London, has also made a number of other local TV bids. The Manchester channel, which could begin broadcasting this year, is estimated to have the ability to reach one million homes in Manchester via the digital-terrestrial frequency it has been allocated.
