In 2011 Ed created a new business Comux UK, in order to bid for the licence to operate the infrastructure that will support the new local television channels in the UK.
In January 2013 Ofcom announced that Comux UK had beaten the BBC and two other bidders in the race to win the licence. The BBC will now provide £25M of funding to enable Comux UK to build the new transmission network.
In November 2013 the network launched on time and on budget. By Easter 2014 the local TV network is expected to extend to more than 12.5 million UK homes.
As a consequence Ed is been a frequent commentator on the local television intitiative.
