Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Pontop Pike transmitter area
d smith: Yes it will...but it will only be a Freeview Light transmitter, it carrying Public Service channels only. They are BBC, ITV1, ITV1+1, ITV2, Channel 4, Channel 4+1, E4, More 4, Channel 5 and HD services.
The transmitters that will carry the full services after switchover are the ones which have the low power Freeview before switchover.
If you provide your location, preferably in the form of post code or nearby post code, we can see what the likely possibility is that you can receive from one of these full Freeview transmitters.
