Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Caradon Hill transmitter area
jim: Yes, and a particularly small one at that.
Longer explanation: There are now two types of broadcaster in the UK: Public Service (PSB) and Commercial (COM).
The Commercial ones are purely profit-driven organisations and the Public Service ones, as the name implies, have a Public Service obligation.
The COM channels achieve coverage of 90% of the population by broadcasting from 81 of the largest transmitters (largest by viewer population).
There are over 1,000 PSB-only relays like St Neot which serve about 8.5% of the population. For the COMs to add them to their portfolio would roughly double their cost of transmission. As they operate purely for profit derived from advertisers which requires viewers, then they wish to acquire most viewers at lowest possible cost. For this reason it isn't surprising that they don't wish to double their cost of transmission in order to add about 10% to their existing viewer base.
