Blue: If you have that many channels you are receiving a main transmitter (most likely Mendip or Wenvoe if you are seeing Welsh channels). Unless you have duplicates from another transmitter then with 139 channels tuned you are probably receiving everything available. If you can receive all the channels listed below (one from each multiplex) then you will be able to receive all the others:
1 - BBC One (PSB1)
3 - ITV (PSB2)
7 - Local TV station (if you are within coverage of one) (Local Mux)
10 - ITV3 (COM4)
11 - Pick (COM5)
18 - 4Music (COM6)
101 - BBC One HD (PSB3 - DVB-T2 tuner required)
107 - BBC News HD (COM7 - DVB-T2 tuner required)
55 - 5Star+1 (COM8 - DVB-T2 tuner required)

If you are in North Somerset, we can't be sure as you have not given the required full post code, then you may well be receiving from the Mendip full service transmitter. If that is the case then you are getting all the channels transmitted, there are no others available unless you use Freesat or Sky.

What is the catch with FREESAT ? - I currently have an HD subscription with SKY with the entertainment package. I also have the film package but could live without that. What costs are involved with FREESAT if I gave up my SKY subscription.

Bill Stewart: A Freesat box will give you 200 or so free to air channels for a one off cost of buying the box (from ?171 if you want a box that records). It reuses your existing dish and cabling so you can set it up yourself without needing an engineer/installer to visit.
