David Millward: The likely answer is on. See here for an explanation:

You might be able to receive from Winter Hill directly.

Alternatively, if Winter Hill is not an option, you might (depending on your exact location) be able to receive the commercial channels from another main station such as Sutton Coldfield. As Sutton Coldfield broadcasts Central regional programming, you might wish to continue watching Granada, in which case you could retain your aerial on Over Biddulph and combine it with a second aerial on Sutton Coldfield for the commercial channels.
