Jeremy Hunt and the DCMS have today announced the first Local TV pioneer areas which are expected to be:
- Brighton and Hove
with a further 24 areas to follow.
At Talk About Local we are advocates of true #localTV and keep a list of Local Internet TV channels. We are interested in exploring ways that our network of #hyperlocal websites are able to work with the new Local TV channels in mutually beneficial ways. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to explore possible links between Local TV & Hyperlocal sites.
