Local broadcast television is coming to Scotland and it's already on the web.
Local broadcast TV is coming to Scotland.
The FifeTay Local TV Consortium has been involved in lobbying for more than five years and we are delighted that, at last, local TV stations are being licensed over the coming year. A group of companies and local autority organisations are preparing a bid for a local TV licence, these include Taycreen, Bannerman Technology, Brymer Legal, Peak to Peak and others.
As part of this, we are proud to present a pilot service on the web to show what it might look like.
The Atrium is devised and produced by Tay FM and Tay AM with ICU Smile Productions, Peak to Peak Outside Broadcast, Dundee College and Adam Smith College.
The web platform has been developed by Bannerman Technology.
Down the line, you will be able to see local TV on your TV, on the web and on your mobile smartphone or tablet.
We know there is a tremendous appetite for local news, local sports coverage, local interest stories, local cultural features and local business news.
It’s a chance for you to get involved in how your community is seen on screen and get your message across.
The Fife and Tayside area of Scotland has been reinvented as a centre for creative excellence with a worldwide reputation for imaginative and resourceful services and an infrastructure and production facilities that are the envy of many other global locations.
The FifeTay Consortium is chaired by Professor Stewart Brymer. Working as part of or in cooperation with FifeTay are Bannerman Technology, Dundee College, Peak to Peak Outside Broadcast, PerthshireOnline.TV, Tay FM and Tay AM, and the University of Dundee.
Collaboration and cooperation in the region and in Scotland will be key to delivery of a service that everyone can enjoy. We’re interested in talking to companies and people that want to be involved.
