Some That's TV News.

That's Berkshire will launch as That's Thames Valley.


As, it would seem will That's Hampshire (Basingstoke)

Probably because Newbury has been added to the original Reading licence, and Andover and Winchester to the Basingstoke one

Perhaps the Reading and Basingstoke stations will simulcast, with just the local ads differing ?

The 'That's' Website is utterly useless for any meaningful info.

I wouldn't be surprised if they've been given permission to merge the two licences as KMTV have with Tonbridge and Maidstone to make them viable.

Seems York and Scarborough will be separate services, although I can see the Cardiff/Bristol situation with Made where they share the same management.

The two That's TV Thames Valley channels will launch in May. Reading on May 3, Basingstoke on May 23.


Many thanks ! Presumably this is semi public domain info, because I've seen nothing published locally regarding this news ?

It's from Ofcom's monthly licensing update.

I wouldn't say advance publicity is something that's typical of That's TV. Many of their stations have sneaked on air rather than launched in a blaze of publicity.

The fact that the Thames Valley brand is being used across both channels may see a share of resources.

Made in Teesside is sharing journalists with Tyne & Wear currently and according to the website, the T&W Lowdown presenters are also on the Teesside edition.
