First local TV station ‘Estuary TV’ launches

Estuary TV, the first of 19 local TV stations being launched across the UK, started broadcasting on November 26.

The channel will be broadcast from three TV studios at the Grimsby Institute and University Centre Grimsby and will be available on Freeview Channel 8.

Programmes currently being planned for the launch include regular news bulletins, a sports discussion programme ‘On the Bench’, a Friday night talk show ‘That Friday Show’, a cookery programme ‘The Lincolnshire Kitchen‘ and other documentaries and entertainment programmes.

Lia Nici, Executive Producer for Estuary TV, said: “Often we don’t realise how innovative we are in Grimsby and actually we’re ahead of the game. We are the first local Freeview channel to launch and that is a huge accolade for the creative industries in our region.”
