Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Rowridge transmitter area
Am I only one who cant receive any reception on either BBC or ITV Analogy and no freeview channels at all, I live just outside Chichester in West Sussex and get our signal (!) from the Rowbridge transmitter on the IOW. When complaining to the BBC, first they tell me we will be fully digital on the 7th March 2012, I should retune on a clear day with good weather, tried this and we are still unable to receive anything .. We have a booster on our aerial, but still no picture can anyone help.

Why are they transmitting the message about the upcoming switch over on Rowridge so often as it does not happen for over two months it seems nearly every time I change channel the message appears and it's getting very annoying.
