North Wales is to get it’s own TV channel more than three years after Ofcom awarded Toxteth-based based Bay TV the licence for a digital terrestrial TV station in Mold.

Made TV, the largest operator of City TV Stations in the UK, joined with members of the Bay TV management team last August to acquire 100% of Bay TV, with the takeover came the Ofcom Mold TV licence.

The launch of Made in North Wales will follow that of Made in Teesside, which will air for the first time on 30 March, 2017.

The two new launches will bring the number of channels within the Made Television Network which included ones in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool and Tyne & Wear.

Made in North Wales will deliver a variety of entertainment covering lifestyle, sport and Welsh language programming as well as daily north Wales news bulletins.

The finished output will be edited and delivered for transmission from the company’s regional playout centre in Liverpool.

Made TV told Deeside.com “We aim to limit studio production as much as possible, preferring to use the region as its ‘backdrop’.”

Says Jamie Conway, CEO of Made Television,

North Wales is a vibrant and beautiful part of the UK and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to entertain viewers living here with programming that will be tailored to their needs.

Our aim is to inspire and engage and we are looking forward to unveiling some fantastic new programming when we launch next month.’

We are committed to providing opportunities for local people to get involved in what we do and we’re looking forward to working with the local community in North Wales so that we can bring a channel that is truly dedicated to them.

Made in North Wales will launch on 26 April, 2017 via Freeview 8 and Virgin 159.

The channel will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a catch-up service available online.
