Just watched half an hour's worth of Leeds TV - pretty much my quota for the year. They've have just run a piece about a dog that picks up litter on Scarborough beach. A 90 minute drive away on a good day. Oh, and a weird advertorial for Active Fitness.- with horribly distorted interview audio. To be fair it was flagged up by a 'P' product placement symbol just prior. Also worth noting a few bits with a SWNS credit - a news agency that appears to have an office in Leeds. Beyond that, the old trick of a few minutes' content shoved into a rotating playlist - and boom!, there's your 'local' box ticked.
What transmitter is Scarborough on? If they get Look North Leeds there (Emley Moor transmitter) instead of Look North Hull (Belmont), then it makes sense that it would be covered on Leeds TV, as they'd be able to pick up the channel there.
