Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Crystal Palace transmitter area
We need a full post code to look up what reception will be like at your precise location, a town name is not accepted by the Digital UK Coverage Checker.
I suggest you double check all the connections between the aerial terminals and the TV set aerial socket. Ensure that the outer sheath of the coaxial cable(s) does not come into contact with the inner conductor at any point, especially where there are any coaxial plugs fitted.

No-one knows for certain at present AFAIK. Things may become clearer early next year when the 700MHz band is auctioned, but the general feeling is they will be there until 2022, but if they are to go any earlier I'd guess London might be one of the first places, but it's all speculation until OFCOM announces something.

Details on this page may not be accurate. There are 1100+ transmitters in the uk and the site owner has been unable to keep up with all the changes primarily resulting from the 700Mhz clearance programme and some other changes.

Please check the above table for Crystal Palace is up to date because what I am receiving are different, I.e I get Channels 22, 23, 25, 26, 28, 30(BBCB) and 35 (COM8), but not channels 48(BBCB), 55(COM7) and 56(COM8).
