I dread to think how much of the licence fee (aka our money) was spent/wasted on Mr Hunt's pet project. Seeing how the ITV franchises had merged over the years should have been a clue.
Despite living in Cambridgeshire I've never been able to receive That's Cambridge on Freeview die to being nearer the Sandy Heath transmitter. On Virgin Media the EPG
just shows the channel name instead of individual programme names, making it pot luck if tuning in. As others have suggested had the channels been aimed at entire regions they would have had a better chance.
I dare say those that survive will push to drop as much local programming as they can. I imagine London Live is one of the few channels that covers a large enough area to potentially still survive.
