Click on the WOO TV to visit the Woo TV & Radio Page.

When TV went Digital, the local area lost out once again, it was short changed by 'Digital' who supply the broadcasts. There were promises of 99 channels prior to it starting, but we only ended up with a handful.

Why?

The Long Mountain Transmitter as it is advertised, turns out not to be a transmitter but a 'Relay', and it is not capable of transmitting more channels and giving us access to the full range available elsewhere in the UK.

But you can access them here through Woo-TV
