Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Crystal Palace transmitter area
Dorothy Johnston: Its really dependant on where you reside within the East Grinstead area, although if you do get reception it will be on a three multiplex Freeview "light" basis where only public services are being broadcast, namely BBC / ITV / the HD service.
It may even be possible to pick up Freeview from Crystal Palace once it starts on high power next April, but only a post code would enable your reception possibilities to be checked.

MW: No. The Commercial broadcasters do not wish to invest over a 1,000 small transmitters like East Grinstead.
They achieve 90% coverage from 81 of the largest transmitters (largest by viewer population). To include the small transmitters would roughly double their cost of transmission whilst only adding 8.5% of the population to their potential viewer base.
They have no "Public Service" obligation and operate purely for profit.
The only thing you can do is investigate the possibility of receiving from another transmitter that carries the Commercial channels. In some cases this may mean going to some lengths.
