Missing channels - Halesowen

I now have great Freeview and Freeview HD from PSB1, PSB2, PSB3 from the Halesowen transmitter but do not get any channels from COM4, COM5 or COM6.

Am I right in assuming that the missing channels will be available using my existing aerial after 28th September 2011 ? I read this date from a posting on this website.

Great informative website by the way !

Steve: This is a public service (or Freeview Lite) transmitter, and will only ever carry the services listed above.

You can move your aerial to point at Sutton Coldfield to receive all the services, should you want them.

ARQB transmission is terrible in Halesowen B62 area. All the channels broadcast on channel 39 keep stopping. Signal strength is 10 and quality gets up to max 36.
TV finds the channels but on very weak signal. Channels are 4film, 4music etc..
