Estuary TV, a new local station, to launch in Grimsby

The first of a new wave of local TV stations starts broadcasting on Tuesday when Estuary TV launches from a base in Grimsby.

Over the next year, 19 new channels will launch across the UK. They will be funded by advertising, sponsorship and a commercial agreement with the BBC and will broadcast a mix of local news, sport and culture.
