Sheffield Live! TV is broadcasting seven days a week to 500,000 adults via Freeview, cable and the internet, reaching an estimated 19% (95,000) each week. There is a full programme of live TV from 6pm to 1am with news, what’s on and community radio at other times.
The local TV channel is owned by Sheffield Community Media, a community benefit society with 116 members (investors). The channel employs seven staff and four freelance reporters and is supported by over 120 volunteers. It works closely with Commedia Sheffield, which runs Sheffield’s city-wide community radio station, to deliver a cross platform media service – on radio, TV, web and mobile – under the Sheffield Live! brand.
