Are there any plans to upgrade the Rothesay Transmitter, If not is there any other transmitter that can provide me with the full range of Freeview Channels ?

Kenneth Fraser: No, it isn't likely to carry more channels. See here for an explanation:

Londonderry (Northern Ireland) Freeview Light transmitter | ukfree.tv - 11 years of independent, free digital TV advice

You may be able to receive all channels from Rosneath: the Digital UK predictor suggests you might be able to do so, although there is high-ground in the way:

I am in G776FP Glasgow. I have freesat which works well.Humax box suggests good strength. However on my PICK TV channel 144 I don't receive the same programmes that my colleagues get 3 miles away. Is there a reason for this? For instance tonight ManU were playing Swansea live on PICK tv but I had sun, sea and A&E.

Based at Bd14 6PQ I receive my freeview from North East transmitter but do not get Drama or True Entertainment channels That are available on Yorkshire. Will these become available in future?

Karen: If you can receive ITV3 then Drama and True Entertainment will be coming down your aerial lead, as it were, thus the issue resides in your receiver (TV or box). The reason is that these three services are all carried on the same signal (multiplex) - it being COM4.

If you don't receive the three COM channels - which if you can you will have ITV3, Pick TV and 4Music - then you will require a replacement aerial.
