Of the The four applicants for the local television multiplex operations, the proposal from Comux for multiplex services is a straightforward service of two semi-national channels to be distributed alongside the local services using existing Arqiva sites.
Ed Hall (see About us - Comux) is the Chairman and Chief Executive of Comux is from Canis Media, who are a leading broker the channels for the Sky EPG. See Canis Media Group
The licence will run for 12 years, with some local TV channels on the air before the end of 2013.
Comux will cover all of the initial 19 local TV locations (Swansea and Plymouth have had no bids yet) and up to 44 other such areas - where coverage is technically possible, and can also make a case for other locations to be added.
