TV to be Made in Bristol

A new television channel dedicated to Bristol will be launched next year.

Made in Bristol will broadcast to 330,000 households on freeview, and is a collaboration between Made Television Ltd and Bristol based news agency South West News Service (SNWS).

The launch is part of the second phase of a regional TV roll-out that is taking place across the country.

£25m is being spent across the country to develop local TV infrastructure, with a further £5m to be spent annually on local content, all of which will be funded by the BBC licence fee.

Developers of the channel claim that it will showcase all aspects of Bristol life through news bulletins, local sports, a 30 minute news programme and a daily magazine show.

Regional television has been trialed in the past, but in a city as colourful and exciting as Bristol we hope this time that it will be a success.
