I know it’s been said time and time again but we would have been far better off with a national networked channel with local news opts.

- like what itv was... until Ofcom alwowed a great watering down of PSB

But I note in this BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-55854307
Rather than sitting in studios, Local TV Ltd's presenters film their reports on the streets on iPhones, edit them on iPads, and will upload them to websites and social media as well as putting them on air.
"The old-fashioned model was not sustainable but we're moving to a much more lean, mean and efficient [model]," Ms Mackenzie says.

BUT this was exactly the model that the BBC proposed to provide local News in 2007
and save valuable RF spectrum and the large costs of emission!
and was linked to (and add the missing) Local Radio stations
- and have a online tv version of the local opts of National Radio

I'd love to see feedback of those reports compared to output on the likes of Kent TV. Reeling off the headlines next to a bush followed by community and pr stories can't exactly be enough to capture an audience.

From what I have seen on thats (Manchester) most recently there have been local MPs on. I assume it is easier to get these interviews 'virtually'

Probably the only channels some are not boycotting.

Some grabs showing the new-ish look on the Local TV (ex-Made) chain of channels that I posted to Box Babble (shameless plug).

It's an improvement on the last look which took the already poor Made logo and refactored it for the new channel names.

Considering Local TV has switched to a more OB format for their news, I feel their overall presentation isn't bad at all.
