Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sutton Coldfield transmitter area
No Freeview Light transmitter such as Allesley Park is ever likely to be upgraded to add the COM (commercial) multiplexes.
It is simply that the commercial operators who are responsible for the multiplexes which are not transmitted by small relays, do not think that the investment in extra transmitters etc is worth it for the small communities involved, they would not see a return on the investment considering that it's the advertising revenue that has to pay for it. If you were to contact all the commercial broadcasters involved, they would likely say well, its all there (well most of it is and extra) on Freesat. If you want extra channels and are unable to receive a main transmitter, the consider Freesat. A lot of modern TVs already have a satellite tuner built-in, so all you need is a Disn and LNB.
