I hate the fact that both ITV1 Wales and ITV1 In the West still have HTV News. It's no longer HTV and HTV is never seen on screens apart from in the Endcaps. What is the point in keeping HTV News?
It's still called HTV News, because HTV are still the source of the news, and it's one of the last vestages of the HTV brand. It still comes from the HTV studios, and HTV employ the reporters. It's the HTV newsrooms across the country that gather the news and it's the links that HTV have made over the last 30-odd years that allow them to get the news and information they do.
ITV-1 Wales and ITV-1 in the West, are just the
names for the stations formerly displayed as HTV [Wales] and HTV [West]. HTV still pay their wages [indirectly from Carlton of course now, since they own HTV], and HTV still produce the programmes on ITV-1 Wales and S4C~. ITV-1 Wales is just what the yellow and blue box on the screen has said since October 28th last year, and doesn't mean a great deal more than that.
