Walker Morris helps Estuary TV to become first local digital terrestrial TV station
Media lawyers at Walker Morris have helped Estuary TV to be the very first station to be launched under the new framework for local digital terrestrial television, announced in 2010 by the government.
Estuary TV, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Grimsby Institute Group, commenced broadcasting on Freeview channel 8 on 26 November from its three TV studios at the Grimsby Institute and University Centre Grimsby.
Estuary TV has also been successful in its bid to Ofcom for the licence to establish a service to cover the Scarborough area, which will hopefully begin broadcasting next September.
The licences are part of a national framework outlined in 2010 by the then-culture secretary Jeremy Hunt.
