I am in London and use Freeview exclusively. Is there any way that I can extend my list of channels to include S4C?

Christopher: S4C is only broadcast on Freeview from transmitters in Wales, non of which can be received in London. It is available elsewhere via satellite and since the BBC now provide a large proportion of funding, S4C's programs are also available on iPlayer.
