Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Limavady transmitter area
David herron: Probably never. This question is asked about one transmitter or another almost every day and the answer is the same every time. The channels which you don't receive are operated by commercial broadcasters, with most being available from 80 transmitters which cover 90% of UK households. To reach 98.5% coverage (matching BBC, ITV, Channel 4 & Channel 5) requires over 1,000 additional transmitters which the commercial broadcasters are not interested in broadcasting from due to the costs involved. If you want more channels either provide a full postcode so that we can see whether you might be able to use another transmitter, or look at getting Freesat which will give you almost all of the channels available on Freeview (and many others too) for a one-off cost.
