The county of Essex in England will soon have its own local channel, the Essex TV channel, which will be launched in the first quarter of 2016. Essex TV will mainly be an IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) in which television programs are broadcasted through the internet. These programs will later be broadcasted on the regular television.
The very new channel has appointed Alin Stacescu as their Creative Director who brings with him his big bucket of experience in the TV industry. Tim Tiernan, the famous British Film Festival Director will take the position of the Operations Director for this British TV.
This UK-based local channel aims at providing the talented individuals a platform to showcase their creativity. Developing intelligent and contemporary programming is among their major objectives. Their slogan ‘Bringing Essex together’ implies that they will broadcast programs that are fit for consumers from all walks of life. They offer a wide variety of programs to choose from. Reality shows, documentaries, TV series, business, news and sports are the categories, which will help in achieving diverse viewership.
Forecasted to compete with Netflix, or even London Live, they are all set to reach the global audience and set the entertainment bar high.
