Is it not the case though that pretty much every TV region has areas on its periphery where people would choose to receive a different service if it wasn’t for the local topography making it impossible?
Unless you happen to be lucky enough to live fairly centrally within a particular region's broadcast patch, you're gonna have an unbalanced skew of news.
For example... Henley-on-Thames viewers (on DTT
, at least) are cut off from hearing news about the rest of Oxfordshire, but get to hear about news from as far southeast as parts of Kent! A region has got to begin and end somewhere, so such anomalies are unavoidable.
No solution is ideal. Viewers in Eyemouth may prefer to hear about Berwick-upon-Tweed rather than Tobermory, Inverness or Whitehaven. And I doubt that viewers in Stranraer care about news from Eyemouth. You can't please everyone.
