There’s much talk about a new TV channel that will be hitting Bristol’s screens soon. Made in Bristol will broadcast to 330,000 households in the city and is one of 19 British cities to get its very own TV station.
The station aims to be on air 24 hours a day, seven days a week, broadcasting an hour of live news every night as well as programmes on current affairs, entertainment, property, sports and more.
An editorial team is now in place including station manager Chris James who has worked for both the BBC and ITV. The channel will be available on Freeview and Sky.
London’s own version, the Evening Standard’s London Live, launched with a bang at the end of March as the first presenters on screen broadcast live from the red carpet at the Noah premiere in Leicester Square and included interviews with actress Emma Watson, famous for her role in Harry Potter.
Aside from Bristol and London, other cities to get local TV are Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton & Hove, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Grimsby, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Preston, Sheffield and Southampton.
