Bit academic at this stage as Ofcom have not awarded the Local Multiplex Licence for the services to run on.

Arqiva's timetable for getting the stations into service is August 2014 for Grimsby and September 2014 for Brighton. Information from….pdf Schedule 11 (page 100 of the PDF).

Mike Dimmick: Don't be so hasty. Avanti do not plan to use Whitehawk Hill or Belmont if they win the Muxco licence. They will provide increased and better targeted audiences tailored to the coverage requirements of the two new licence holders.
