It is all in line for a possible success
It is all in line for a possible success , anyone can produce television well with the right budgets, the whole key to this is the revenue model. If you read the details of the document, the BBC is paying for the point of transmission with a cost to each local station being up to £100,000 per annum.
The key to this is not to forget online, mobile and print in the proposition, this is not a tv channel it is a local communication hub, but freeview at best can only get to county level on a single channel per transmitter, so internet propositions in a bbc iplayer style will work every time.
Taking out the failing YELL.com, Thompson Local and various other over priced rubbish will aid the revenues to be around again, but do not get me wrong, this should be all about "local business", "local commerce growth" and "local communication" not a lifestyle business for 20 wannabie tv people.
