Elizabeth Campbell: It says "From 26th June 2014" at the top of the page.

Not sure about an address...

Local TV - Get closer. Coming soon on Freeview does not list one.

It has now been announced "That's Solent" TV will be starting on June 26th 2014 which is six months later than originally stated. Why is this? Also it is stated that the station will belong to a local multiplex broadcasting only to the Southampton area. Do they really mean from Rowridge broadcasting also to Winchester, Fareham and Portsmouth with local news outlets from local multiplexes? Please clarify.

Nick Anderson:

According to their application document:

"The entire coverage area (Southampton, Eastleigh, Fareham and parts of Winchester, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight)."

I'm not sure what you mean by "local news outlets from local multiplexes" but there will be only be one version of That's Solent available on Channel 8 DTT and online.

June 26th 2014 seems an odd choice of launch date because it's in the middle of the football World Cup and Wimbledon tennis championships, with potentially large numbers of people watching BBC1 & ITV.

It has all gone strangely quiet, the website is dead and the only news on the web appears to be old. Even the college who are supposed to be hosting the studio don't appear to know what's happening

I have tried contacting them via the details given in their application. Nothing.

I have tried contacting Ms Rantzen's office. Nothing.

I have tried contacting one of the newspapers mentioned in the application. They won't say what's happened.

I have tried contacting the college where the studio will be. They refuse to comment.

I personally think the project has collapsed.

What's happened to the That's Solent start date of June 28th? It appears it has now been pushed back for the second time to December 28th. Will this station ever appear and what about a statement from the organisers or management? London Life TV has started on time on March 28th so what is the problem with the station down here?
