Isle of Man to choose own ITV region

Residents of the Isle of Man have been asked to express their preference for which ITV region is broadcast across the island after digital switchover. It is currently (unofficially) part of the Border region, although it's also possible to receive Granada programming in some areas. However, following Ofcom's decision to allow Border and Tyne Tees to merge, islanders are to be asked if they would be happy to continue to be (poorly) served by the new super region, or to be (poorly) served by North West England's service. The consultation closes on November 21.
