So if you have Sky or Freesat, you should be ok as the uplink to the satellites isn't affected. I suppose Freeview viewers will become reliant on VOD services or the likes of TV Player.
Many people are reliant on terrestrial though and won't have the choice of satellite or online. Then there's radio of course, not everyone will want to hook a phone up in their car to listen to Radio 2 online.
If the worst come to the worst and there's a need for a temporary mast and replacement transmitters it will be interesting to see which services are prioritised and how quick they come back. It's not got as many services from it as Crystal Palace or Sutton Coldfield but there's still a lot, and many are directional for example the 3 local TV Muxs. I can't imagine they'll be top priority or much room on a temporary mast for the aerials
Big football match coming up too, will be interesting to see if the North West can watch that
