Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Caldbeck transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Cannot at present access 5*, Demand4 or 5USA (can do it through computer but not very good)(Purchased a Freeview TV when we went digital and had all the Freeview channels but some were taken off a few months later., leaving only C5. Most of the programmes one watched back then were moved onto the Demand 5 etc., If I purchase a new TV with built in Freeview (again)will I be able to receive these channels, or do I have to get a freeview box and access it those channels from there. Why is life so complicated!! - Kendal area LA9 5ET

Mrs B Bellas: The short answer is no. Look at the top of the page, where it says 'Are you trying to watch these 50 Freeview channels?', and then lists channels like the one your trying to watch. Its a light PSB transmitter, and those other channels cannot be bothered to pay to transmit to you - its not worth their while.
Since you put your postcode into the site, we can see what your local transmitters are like, and Calbeck is the only one that could do it, but Digital UK reckons thats next to impossible.
Best bet? Go Freesat. You ight not get all the channels, but you'd get more than your able to now.
