JMB televisions? So who makes those?

I spotted some JMB television sets on offer on the Very mail order web site and wondered who was behind the JMB brand.

A search revealed these JMB TVs on other online retailers that are part of the same group as Very, namely Littlewoods and Woolworths. It looked like JMB was an inhouse own brand, something a post on avforums seemed to confirm this suggesting “JMB” stands for “John Moores Brand”, John Moores being the founder of the company.

Google turned up a link to a pdf manual for the 32″ JMB 32/68G-GB-1B-TCDU-UK on the UMC web site so it lloks like at least one JMB TV model is made by the Slovakian manufacturer Universal Media Corporation.
