Re: adding a single channel

159 should be available on all packs, so either there's an error, or there may not be anything broadcasting in your area

Where are you?

TV: XL+SkySports V6
BB: 200Mbps SuperHub: Arris
Loc: ME10

Re: adding a single channel

No - you can't add single channels anyway and even if it were possible if the channel is not carried on the VM distribution point to which you are connected, as it would not be in this case as it is a strictly local channel, it would not be available to add.

I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.

Re: adding a single channel

Channel 159 is allocated for Local TV, & is headend dependant. So the headend that serves your area must be in the agreed licence coverage area of the station.

As far as I am aware Made in Leeds only has a licence to operate on Freeview. A lot of the local TV stations that are launching are strapped for cash & are therefore not persuing the additional cable transmission licence required.
