The local channel that could change the game – Essex TV

All new channel Essex TV that launches on the 28th of April could really change the game on digital media and TV scene.

The consortium backed channel will boast of current affairs programming, features of local businesses and local talent whilst this is cushioned by a library of international films and TV series for viewers to dig in and enjoy themselves.

In the UK Essex is a very strong brand as TV series The Only Way Is Essex has soared to global success growing to multuple series however the Essex TV channel headed by arts philanthropist Matthew C. Martino has decided to go the opposite direction by creating a ‘hub for local talent and businesses to spotlight their news’.

Essex TV Ltd is a new digital local TV Channel for the great county of Essex.

Its aim is to highlight the local county of Essex to the world allowing local talent and businesses an opportunity to spotlight themselves whilst entertaining viewers with intelligent and cutting edge programming.


A new digital TV channel specialising in entertainment, news, current affairs and the transmission of local sports and events.

The edge Essex TV could have over other broadcasters is their open door policy on ideas and content which gives them a very high rating as opposed to other channels, one think tank reported that 7/10 ideas sent to the Chelmsford based channel are commissioned. The channel also covers a wide variety of local events most recently covering The Ultimate Planet Awards and the South East Entertainment Awards an event masterminded by Lee Knell.

Headed up by Chairman Mark Watson-Gandy who is assisted by Chief Executive Matthew C. Martino the channel boasts of experience on the executive branch with Tim Tiernan furnishing appointments as Operations Director.
