Bernard Casken: The "national" broadcasters in the UK are known as "Public Service Broadcasters". These are available from Tenbury Wells transmitter, as they are available from all other TV transmitters.

It is the Commercial broadcasters that don't have a "Public Service" obligation that get to pick and choose which transmitters they wish to pay to use. See here for an explanation:

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

What you might like to do is assess whether you may be able to receive from a full-service transmitter such as Sutton Coldfield.

The fact that you are receiving from the Tenbury Wells relay does not necessarily mean that reception from the main station (Sutton Coldfield) is out of the question. After all, in the days of analogue you would only have been able to receive four channels irrespective of which transmitter you used. It may be that Tenbury Wells provided the better signal of the two, which is why it was chosen.

Today, however, the question may be one of whether you can receive from Sutton Coldfield at all. If so, then you may wish to have an aerial installed for it.
