Bay TV will NOT be available from June 30th, 2014.

The on-air launch is delayed until the Fall of 2014.

Hyperlocal channels sign sales deal but Bay TV delays launch - Prolific North


QUOTE
The reason for the delayed launch of Bay TV Liverpool is due to a relay transmitter in Wirral, which won't be operational until August.

"It's taken a little longer than we had hoped," said Johnson.

"It means we have had to revise our plans and we are now working towards a launch in October, depending on the speed with which the Storeton relay can be commissioned and we can get through testing our equipment.

I live in South Liverpool and my main transmitter is Storeton, I also pull in Moel-Y-Parc.
My local BBC1 HD is for the North West but when it goes to local news the HD channel tells you to retune to the SD channel version to watch while the HD plays music and puts up an information screen.
When you go to the SD channel the TV automatically brings up a notice that an HD version is available and do I want to go to it.
Is it not possible for the HD channel to show the local news even if it is in SD.
It is being broadcast from a North West transmitter so why not put the North West news on it.
It becomes very annoying to have to keep changing channels.

Bill Parsons: Yes, it is possible, but would mean that the cost of regional news would be even higher than it is now.

At the present time there is only one BBC One HD feed and to have one for each SD region would mean duplication of the equipment that produces the multiplex stream, and this would be required even if regional news were in SD. There is only about one hour of regional news on weekdays so the additional accounted "cost per minute" for the equipment would be very high!

I don't think it's a responsible use of Licence Fee payers' money.
