Regarding the responses above regarding it not being worthwhile for 'commercial' operators to increase the number of channels/multiplexes:- well, that might be an acceptable argument for purely 'commercial' channels. BUT, and I would like to use BBC4HD as an example - BBC4HD is NOT a commercial channel, but West Cumbrians cannot receive it from the Whitehaven transmitter - instead we get repeats of the 'commercial' channels iTV, C4 and Film4, delayed by an hour (ITV+1, C4+1 and Film4+1) - so that appears to me as if the 'commercial' operators are 'pumping' their stuff, twice, on the public broadcast multiplex, instead of giving us free choice of new, BBC, material, which we licence payers DO pay for?
