Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Winter Hill transmitter area
Mary Martin: Presumably it was a temporary problem, and you should be able to manually retune and get them back? At least you have the option of a Welsh transmitter if there's any problems.
On the 10th of April retune event at Winter Hill, the BBC channels will be lost until late afternoon, but should come back on their own.
