Quotes

"With the eyes of the world on Scotland's impending independence referendum, BBC charter renewal drawing near and some of the most transforming deals in the media taking place, the television industry faces an uncertain future" the RTS said
"Digital communications infrastructure has reached a point where its importance is (at least) on a par with more traditional infrastructures such as transport and energy" , the document said
The DCMS said the government is "likely at some point to need to consider with operators and the regulator whether switching off copper networks is desirable from a commercial and a policy objective" , reports the Guardian
...However, in a statement posted on the company's Facebook page, Davis confirmed the closure. She said: "It is with great regret that BLTV, City8, has gone into administration. There were plans being negotiated to rescue the company but, as I understand, creditors rejected early conversations in favour of proceeding with their application. There are a number of factors which led to this. But we need to look ahead. I am confident that administrators will work towards a solution and I have offered them my support as the company director. Jeremy Hunt, former Secretary of State for DCMS, had an ambition to bring truly local television to the UK. This is so important to towns and cities across the country - especially outside the M25. I am saddened that we couldn't help deliver that vision but it is one that I believe would make a game-changing difference to a lot of communities and local interests."
