Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Olivers Mount transmitter area
Steve: The Commercial broadcasters that do not broadcast from Hunmanby and 1,000 plus similar small relays don't wish to pay for them:

The TV licence goes exclusively to the BBC and all BBC services are broadcast from Hunmanby and are therefore available to you.
The effective power of the Oliver's Mount transmitter is greater after switchover, thus it will reach some areas that it didn't before.
Previously the four main channels may have been available (at a particular location) from the local relay (Hunmanby) and its parent (Oliver's Mount) with the former being easier to receive. Now there may be a difference in the number of channels available, hence, in some cases it may be possible to change from using the relay to the parent/main station to increase the channels available.
