julie jacobs: If you supply your postcode, or one for a nearby shop or public building it will be possible to see from the DUK reception predictor what channels you might expect to receive. The Brixham relay only transmits the PSB muxes, so would give you BBC channels and ITV, C4, C5, ITV2 etc only as listed above,.plus the HD channels. However if you are able to receive signals from Beacon Hill or Stockland Hill (when using a suitable aerial) you might be able to receive the full Freeview service.

julie jacobs: You appear to be in the area that the Brixham relay is intended to serve, with excellent reception predicted, but only on the PSB muxes. Your aerial would point NNE with the rods vertical for this transmitter. Using an aerial on Beacon Hill ( pointing NW and set for horizontal polarisation) the prediction is for a fair chance of good reception on the PSB muxes, but the COM muxes are decidedly iffy, with no prediction offered for SDN, and poor reception predicted for ArqA and ArqB, possibly due to likely interference from other transmitters using the same frequencies.
