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.



Comux has proposed to cover up to 28 further locations which are listed below (see also <img src="data:image/png;base64,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" class="xico" style="vertical-align:text-bottom" alt="www.ukfree.tv link icon"> link iconLocal television on Freeview maps):



Ofcom will be seeking expressions of interest from potential operators in these additional locations, as it did before the first phase of licensing, and will advertise local licences later this year.
