“This is a great opportunity to tell our Cambridge stories to one another and to the rest of the world; to promote and learn about Cambridge – its history and future as a centre for research, innovation and culture.

Cambridge TV is one of 19 local TV channels transmitting on Freeview and Virgin Media in the UK – Ofcom has licenced more than 30 channels to launch by 2016. The licence has been awarded for 12 years and can be extended.

The channel will be supported by advertising, private investment, sponsorship and a News Content Supply Deal with the BBC.

Based near Newmarket Road, Cambridge TV has its own studio, journalists and staff, but welcomes contact from freelance professionals or people seeking experience in television. We’re also interested to meet anyone with good quality video content they’d like to share with our audience.

Cambridge TV’s predicted coverage at launch is from Ely to the Shelfords (north to south) and from Madingley to Fulbourn (west to east), but people further afield may be able to receive the channel too.

Freeview owners check channel 8 from Tuesday 18th Aug evening onwards. If you need to retune:
