Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sudbury transmitter area
Dear Mike and Brian,
Thank you again. It seems complicated. All I have in mind here is that some time ago Brian said freesat was designed for areas such as mine, so was not best pleased having bought it, to find we were short changed on channels.
Can you explain to me how freesat works? If , for example, I am watching BBC 1, is that the same signal which is going out on Sky? Or are there two BBC 1s up in the sky? If two, it seems a waste of what is available for other channels, and if one, what was the point of starting freesat?
