I'm not sure if I'm lucky or not, but I can now receive two local tv channels. I'm in central Manchester but can receive Liverpool TV s well as That's TV.
That's TV seem to have dropped the "Manchester" tag, though it did feature in the opening titles of their "news" programme earlier this year, but as they have special coronavirus opening titles at the moment so don't know if it is temporary. Originally it was called "That's Manchester, Headline News", in January I noted it had changed to "That's TV, Manchester Headline News", but this week has been branded as just "That's TV, Headline News". breaks seem to be replaced with generic "government advice" slides.
They have also now an hour of 80's music video between 6pm and 7pm each night branded as "That's 80's" (which you can see the end of above). I'm not sure if this is related to coronavirus or not as they still have the usual "news" programme for two hours from 7pm. "That's 80's" does have news, weather and travel information on screen as well, though I'm sure the travel info would be more useful in the morning, rather than when you've just got home from work (in normal circumstances) - though some of the information is a bit dubious, not sure delays between Cardiff Central and Gloucester are too relevant to Manchester residents. I assume they are just taking a feed from all the train companies operating through Manchester Piccadilly.
Over on Liverpool TV, it comes across as significantly more professional than That's TV (nothing new there). They don't have studios and are continuing to present from around Liverpool and have COVID-19 updates - though in the example below the presenter hasn't managed to get herself in focus, but there appears to be plenty of people out for a walk in the park behind her. They've also done an add offering free adverts to local businesses and a special "thanks NHS" advert from the whole of the Local TV Ltd Group.
