BBC Local Radio is now available on Freeview.

Seen in a BBC  Tech Blog.
BBC Local Radio is now available on Freeview, wef 3rd March 2015 (now !)
In most areas, depending on the local BBC TV transmitter
An initial roll-out, more to follow.
Back home, it is Freeview Channel 719, BBC Radio Manchester
Same channels may be allocated in adjacent Freeview transmitter areas.
Local relay transmitter fed from Winter Hill.
As we live in a really bad reception area, this is welcome.

I have an FM radio that tunes into the local FM BBC radio station, clever ain't it? Grin
