ITV extends network control
Published 19/10/2011 | 08:00
ITV is to take control of another slice of the channel 3 network following a deal to acquire Channel Television.
The move will leave STV's operations in Scotland and Northern Ireland's UTV as the only independently-owned broadcasters out of 15 channel 3 franchises. Channel Television is owned by Yattendon, a family-run company.
