Why can't I watch my local news live on BBC iPlayer on my TV device?

We're now defaulting to BBC One HD when users watch BBC One live via BBC iPlayer on their TV. If your local news isn't broadcast on an HD channel, this might be why you're not receiving it on BBC iPlayer on your TV. 

You can watch your local news bulletin live on BBC iPlayer on your TV by setting your location. To do this, head to Settings on the BBC iPlayer application and then Change Location.
