Entertainment Television Channels
Entertainment Television Channels Limited (ETV) manages the Manchester Television Network. Additionally, we manage the teleshopping channel TV Warehouse (Sky 667, Freeview 90) - a 24/7 shopping channel which offers third parties the opportunity to purchase airtime in half hour blocks on a monthly basis.
The Manchester Television Network comprises six Freeview TV channels broadcasting to the Greater Manchester region. ETV operates this Freeview multiplex, offering broadcasters the opportunity to broadcast licenced channels. This regional DTT capacity can handle six video streams (channels) operating 24/7 and offers broadcasters DTT capacity at a much lower cost per household than national multiplex coverage. ETV deals with all aspects of the Multiplex including the technical and engineering requirements.
ETV can deal with all aspects of operating the channels, including EPG creation and delivery, scheduling, air-time sales, sponsorship, accounting and technical services.
Well placed to expand, this will increasingly be a significant part of Canis as the number of channels under management expands, offering clients a one-stop service.
