Ulster  Television plc ('UTV') is pleased to  announce  that
it  has  reached  an  agreement  with  ITV  Digital allowing
the use of the ITV brand in Northern Ireland for its digital
terrestrial platform and subscription channels.  UTV2, UTV's
digital  TV offering, has now been closed to allow  ITV2  to
begin   broadcasting  on  the  digital  multiplex.   It   is
anticipated  that  the  closure  of  UTV2  will   bring   an
annualised cost saving to UTV of approximately £350,000.
