We are on track for our December 2013 launch.
As of 6th September all transmitter sites have been surveyed with the exception of Crystal Palace which is scheduled for this week. Orders for transmitters and telecoms lines have been placed – delivery time expected to be October but until we have the precise dates we don’t consider this confirmed.
Lots of work underway with both us and our transmission subcontractor in getting in touch with the service providers to establish the readiness of their racks rooms, confirm their site details and contact numbers.
We’ve uploaded some maps which demonstrate the coverage. Our plan is for the multiplex to broadcast with transmitters at Crystal Palace, Guildford and Reigate with a second phase of Leatherhead and Hungry Hill.

So will there be a transmitter near County Mall eventually? I am in Worth so how about a local 1 for my area?
Worth is not in Surrey and the multiplex coverage has been adjusted to be for Surrey only – with the idea that Now Sussex (Coast) will be extended to the whole of the county.
We won’t have any indication whether this will happen until after a Government announcement on the 16th December.
