Hi, we live in St Just, and we still get very few freeview channels compared to other parts of the country, yet we pay the same licence fees. Does anyone know if we are due to get more channels in the near future? Even 6 miles away in Penzance they get a far better service.

Jo Pickard: No, "Freeview Light" transmitters are never likely to be upgraded to provide all services because the Commercial broadcasters do not consider them a worthwhile investment.

The Licence fee goes exclusively to the BBC and as a Public Service Broadcaster you have access to all its channels from the St Just transmitter.

See here for a posting I wrote for a further explanation:

Londonderry transmitter | ukfree.tv - 10 years of independent, free digital TV advice

The only likelihood of ever receiving the full service is if you can pick it up from another transmitter.

ITV down yet again. The service from St Just transmitter has to be the worst in the UK.
