Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Wenvoe transmitter area
It might work in some parts of Tonypandy. Look at the map near the top of this page and zoom in, but not so far that the green area disappears, and find your location. If it is in the green area then it may work. If you are in either the yellow area or not coloured then it will not work at all.
Set top aerials are usually cheap, but not very good at getting signals. They are also afected by people moving around the room, even next door!
