Channel manager Erik Selby said: “As a local TV station that brings all the latest news, sport and entertainment to the people of Brighton, being in such a prominent slot is key to the success of the channel, not only for awareness but for all of our viewers’ convenience.

“We now appear on the first page of everyone’s freeview listings alongside some of the nation’s top broadcasters. It not only works for us and our viewers, but also all the local businesses we work with and want to work with in the Greater Brighton area.”

Latest viewing figures show that more than 200,000 people a month are tuning in either on freeview, Virgin Media or online.

Big businesses are also on side with key partners including Brighton and Hove Buses, Brighton i360 and Brighton Lookers.

Selby, who was appointed earlier this month, said: “Latest is already integrated into the core of Brighton and beyond with Latest 7, Latest Homes magazine, Latest Music Bar and now Latest TV.

“What a better way to provide a great service to the people and businesses of Brighton than by bringing a free, 24/7 channel on such a great number on Freeview.

“And for those who don’t have access, we have a fantastic new website – – which has live streaming of our channel as well as lots of other features and is already attracting tens of thousands of viewers.”
