MR G. STREET : The Ilfracombe transmitter won't be upgraded to provide any additional channels. Also, this website has noting to do with operating the transmitters. Your TV licence funds the BBC and S4C and entitles you to watch broadcast television and BBC iPlayer. You are not paying for any other channels via your TV licence. If you want additional channels without a subscription you should look at getting Freesat.
