While TSI's managing director, Simon Peach, claimed that the move was made to preserve the 12 remaining jobs at the playout facility there have been complaints from staff there who were not paid last month.
Sources have also reported that TSI's 46 post-production staff are still awaiting redundancy pay after TSI Post's closure in May. Peach said they would receive the payment as soon as TSI Post went into voluntary insolvency but added that he did not know when this would happen.
TSI Transmission's clients include Dolphin TV, which owns Action Max, and the Wrestling Channel. Peach, who said he would leave the industry once a sale has been announced, added that they had been told about the move, and that he expected the company to continue trading.
TSI Transmission's administrators, Fisher Partners, will oversee the running of the company and its sale.
