Llanelli

Hello
Maybe you can help me.
I live in LLanelli SA15 3BP and I cant pick up all the Freeview Channels.
I have a digital Tv with built in freeview and I have gone into SETUP many times and re-installed but I can only get 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,13,14,33
These are all the tv channels I can pick up. I am on a loft aerial and have used a booster but still nothing more. I would be grateful if you can let me know why I cant get all the freeview channels.
thank you

Val Grace: The Llanelli transmitter, which is to the north of the town on Ty-du Hill, only carries Public Service channels, which is what you've got. This is because the Commercial broadcasters only wish to spend money on transmitting from 80 or so sites nationwide, missing out 1000 or so small sites like Llanelli. For a further explanation, see here:

Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice

In order to get the full service, your aerial will have to point at Kilvey Hill in Swansea. Loft aerials, by their very nature, get less signal than if they were outside, but in some cases that is sufficient. You have found that you get sufficient signal from Llanelli.

However, you may (or may not) be so lucky turning your aerial to Kilvey. Looking at Google Streetview there are quite a few aerials on Kilvey. But the direction to it is inline with the terraces, so a loft aerial is almost certainly out for it due to that fact.
