Entertainment Television Channels

Entertainment Television Channels Limited (ETV) manages the teleshopping channel TV Warehouse on Sky 667, Freeview 271 and Freeview 90 (Greater Manchester area) - a 24/7 shopping channel which offers third parties the opportunity to purchase airtime in half hour blocks on a monthly basis.

ETV also manages the Manchester Television Network - comprising Freeview TV channels broadcasting to the Greater Manchester region. ETV operates this Freeview multiplex, offering broadcasters the opportunity to broadcast licenced channels to homes that receive Freeview in this area. This regional DTT capacity can handle six video streams (channels), and up to ten radio 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.
