Six TV: What can be done?


Six TV Oxford has been cited as a model for Britain of a vital local television station – but it has stopped broadcasting. From an article in the Oxford Mail, it appears to be in part a victim of the digital switchover, as it was a analogue station and could not obtain a guanantee that it would receive a digital channel. In the meantime, it was facing declining resources and audience, as viewers switch to digital. Should Ofcom be backing existing local television services, and not leaving them on an analogue only island? What can Oxford do to provide better local television news and local affairs coverage, particularly in the aftermath of Six TV? Apparently, Milestone Group, which owns Six TV, is in discussions with Ofcom and the Department of Media, Culture and Sport. Don’t hesitate to contact either.
