Gary Short: Llandrindod Wells is a Freeview Lite transmitter, it covers only a few thousand homes and only has the main PSB channels (BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5) and a few of their offshoot channels (ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, etc). The rest of the commercial channels are broadcast from around 90 main transmitters which cover around 90% of UK households, it takes over 1,000 more transmitters to reach 99.5% coverage and the commercial broadcasters are not willing to pay the costs of extending coverage of their channels.
