With both public service and commercial broadcasters pushing to ditch traditional terrestrial TV service as they want to reduce distribution costs and monetise viewers online, a new report says the UK’s internet networks are not ready to become the sole method of receiving TV.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has confirmed it will progress with plans to allow Ofcom to renew licences for local TV channels and the local TV Freeview multiplex.

After re-launching with wider availability on Freeview in December, Together TV’s presence on the platform has been tidied up. Two streaming channels have combined into one portal.

Storm Isha has disrupted reception of Freeview, FM and DAB radio in various parts of the UK overnight. With Storm Jocelyn on its way, problems with reception are expected to continue until the middle of the week.
