Paul Hojka: Steyning is a lite transmitter so in reality probably never. Talking Pictures (along with most of the commercial channels on Freeview) is broadcast from 80-90 transmitters which cover around 90% of UK households. To reach of the 98.5% coverage level of the PSB channels (BBC, ITV, Channel 4 & Channel 5) requires over 1,000 more transmitters, which commercial broadcasters are not willing to pay for in order to reach a relatively small number of additional viewers. If you want more channels you should look at Freesat, which provides most of the same channels available on Freeview (along with various others) via free to air satellite for a one off cost of a Freesat box plus installation of a dish and cabling (an existing dish can be reused if the property hasn't previously had Sky).
