Channel's desire not to lose viewers/local advertising revenue to ITV HD? Presumably the same reason you can't get ITV HD on 111 if you put a Jersey postcode in your STB.
Yes, but Channel is ITV now ? By that logic, why is ITV Central HD available in Devon and Cornwall, is that not
losing local ad revenue too ?
ITV South West has its own HD variations now (or is that just on Satellite?)
I was in the South West region last week, ITV HD was the Central version on DTT
, so I think the South West HD version is only available on D-Sat still
How much truly local advertising is there on the rest of the ITV regions? I would have thought it's not nearly as much as on Channel.
Probably not, but the sum total
of that revenue is probably about the same, if not slightly more ?
