Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Midhurst transmitter area
Finn: The multiplexes as they exist now (as in what services they carry) may be rejigged in the future.
In 2018 attention will probably turn to selling off more of the band used for TV to the mobile operators. Channels 61 to 69 have already been farmed out for 4G with the 50s likely to follow suit. This means that the expanse of frequencies available for TV broadcast will be further erroded which is likely to mean replanning of existing services.
Obviously the move will be to DVB-T2 meaning another "switchover". While some services could stay DVB-T, more may move to DVB-T2 which would explain the current encouragement of uptake of such devices by the extra services of COM7 (and COM8).
BBC Three is set to close (I believe it's been confirmed), so the capacity currently taken by BBC Three HD (on PSB3) will, I suppose, be given over to BBC Four HD. This will obviously mean it becoming available from all transmitters.
I'm not familiar with "4k TV". I also wonder whether there will be a "DVB-T3" come along. Again, I don't know but imagine that it's likely to be in development.

I am in Haslemere in Surrey and in my GU27 2AX location we used to have a fairly strong signal from the Midhurst transmitter. Lately however it has gone down hill badly any reason you can give me and my friends next door please? The Haslemere transmitter takes away loads of our favourite stations and we really don't want to loose them.

Terry Denman et al:
There have been many recent reports of such reception problems, and there have been many reports of atmospheric affects that can cause just the situation you report. So it is quite likely that the well known 'temperature inversion' effect may well be causing your problems. In such a situation do NOT try to retune your equipment as you are likely to lose even more channels.

Does anyone know about the BBC4 outage today, 29/12/15? I set my DVD recorder to record from 7 pm (Dr Who and the RI Christmas lecture) to be greeted when I played back by 2 hrs of the BBC4 black info screen that says it starts broadcasting from 7, which, in this case, it clearly didn't !
