As the "com7" multiplex is alive on the Crystal Palace transmitter, viewers in London now see this exciting screen if they choose 74, 106 or 107.

The same multiplex is also broadcasting Al Jazeera in high defintion in HD.

Another "new" feature is Freeview is now showing a short region code on standard definition BBC ONE

And, congratulations to The York Channel and Made in Teesside, who have won their local TV licences.

Does the reception area of the new local TV station for the London area transmitting from Crystal Palace equal or come close to the area covered by London region of ITV and if not why not?

Nick Anderson: No it does not.

London Live will broadcast only from Crystal Palace, so all its relays won't carry it. It will also be radiated at lower power than the other channels, plus its radiation pattern is from about the 8o'clock position to the 2 o'clock position from the tower (see the radiation pattern on the page for Crystal Palace).
