has been allocated a frequency
(either C57 or C56) to operate a low-power Freeview multiplex
from the Winter Hill transmitter
This service will have a much wider coverage area than the current channel

This is the first digital
multiplex to operate on a local basis, and is the first new multiplex to broadcast in the UK.
