With the success of Made in Cardiff, the city’s dedicated television channel, we are now set to welcome Made in North Wales. Available on Freeview channel eight and Virgin 159, the 24-hour channel is scheduled to launch on April 26th, with creators employing great visions for the launch. Following the response from Made in Cardiff, Made in Liverpool and other sister channels, a dedicated platform for North Wales was the logical next step, according to the network.
In addition to a nightly news bulletin, the channel will broadcast various entertainment pieces from the area, covering things such as lifestyle, sports updates and the Welsh language. There will also be an online catch up service for viewers to utilise, with its makers understanding the need to produce content that can be viewed at various times and on various devices.
CEO, Jamie Conway, is thrilled to be launching this new channel, feeling there to be a huge community of viewers eager to consume such programmes. Talking of the launch, he says:
“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.”
With advertising packages also available, Made in North Wales aims to evolve into a platform in which local businesses can promote their products and services, duplicating the successes of previous endeavours.
