Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Winter Hill transmitter area
Why can't we receive freeview TV from the Castle Hill Transmitter Hadfield as we feel that we are cheated as we pay out TV licence but only receive 16 channels and some are duplicated.
Thanking you in this matter.

a) we dont need to know your address - your not writing a letter that we will be replying to, and you've now released your full postal address and name to the whole of the internet....
b) the answer to your question is simple, and has been repeated many times - commercial broadcasters dont think your worth it. There are just too few of you in your area to make it worth broadcasting to you, because they have to pay for their service to be carried. Its the same way that you dont have a world class hospital or a massive supermarket in every village.
Your licence fee pays for the BBC, which you do get. If they didn't bother, then you'd get nothing, because the cost of broadcasting to the 100's or more 'light' transmitters' is the same as broadcasting on the main transmitters. Light transmitters cover just 8% of the population.
Best idea - just get Freesat.
