ITV and BBC regional TV maps - now with colour (again)
As from today, if you visit BBC nations and regions - overview map, ITV, UTV and STV regions - overview you will see a colourful "all regions" map of the UK.
You can also visit TV transmitter regions - overview map - ukfree.tv - 10 years of independent, free digital TV advice to see all of the transmitter regions (as used for digital switchover), plus there is a map of the RoI service, Saorview (and relays).
I have also updated the popular BBC One and Two satellite codes page at Which BBC regions are on satellite?
Freeview LightThere is now a Freeview Light Map too
ITV Yorkshire, previously known as Yorkshire Television and commonly referred to as just YTV, is the British television service provided by ITV Broadcasting Limited for the Yorkshire franchise area on the ITV network. Until 1974, this was primarily the historic county of Yorkshire and parts of neighbouring counties served by the Emley Moor transmitter. Following a reorganisation in 1974 the transmission area was extended to include Lincolnshire, northwestern Norfolk and parts of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, served by the Belmont transmitter.
Two consortia applied for the franchise, Telefusion Yorkshire Ltd and Yorkshire Independent Television, the former having large financial backing (supported by the Blackpool-based Telefusion television rental chain) and the latter having the better plans but fewer resources.
On 1 January 2007, the company transferred its programme production business to ITV Studios Limited. As a consequence, Yorkshire Television Limited ceased to trade on 1 January 2007. Yorkshire Television Ltd still legally exists, but its licence is now owned and operated by ITV plc under the licence name of ITV Broadcasting Limited (along with all the other ITV plc-owned franchises). Yorkshire Television Ltd is, along with most other regional companies owned by ITV plc, listed with Companies House as a dormant company.
