George Lindsay: You will not receive any channels carried on the SDN, ArqA and ArqB muxes.The Digital UK postcode checker does however predict all six muxes will be available with good reception from Black Hill at your location after switchover stage 2 on 22nd June 2011. At the present time you could find Angus gives good reception on all six muxes, with a signal slightly weaker than the post DSO transmissions awaited from Black Hill.

Jack Cannon: No, the commercial operators do not regard it as profitable to do so and long-since have declined the frequency allocations to enable them to do so.

Bill Cooper: Unfortunately cannot receive a satelite signal, due to the trees, so stuck with Freeview. Not complaining though as it's a huge step forward from only having 3 snowy channels.
