channel-mChannel M Television, which provides the local television service for Greater Manchester, has been awarded a licence by Ofcom which will allow it to broadcast digital terrestrial television services targeted at the Manchester area.
The award is a small part of the UK’s digital dividend, the spectrum that will be freed-up as a result of digital switchover; and covers 8 MHz of interleaved spectrum in the Manchester area.

Interleaved spectrum act as buffers between television transmitters to stop them interfering with each other and can be used for a range of low-power uses while still preventing interference.
The next award of interleaved spectrum will be for the Cardiff area in late February 2009.
