Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Wenvoe transmitter area
I receive my TV Transmissions from Upper Killay, Swansea. As this is a relay station I can only receive a limited number of channels. When am I going to be able to receive the same number of channels as people who receive direct from a main transmitter? In the meantime, surely I am due for a rebate on my TV Licenec Fee because of the my limited reception, which is not my fault.
Sensible answers only to this query please.

Andrew: Have you tried putting your postcode into the Digital UK postcode checker to see if you are predicted to receive the COM muxes from Wenvoe, or possibly Mendip after the power is eventually increased? With regard to the TV license, this has to be paid whenever a TV is capable of receiving even one channel. As it pays for the BBC you are able to receive all the BBC channels on PSB1 and PSB3.

Andrew: Legally, the TV licence is required if you own a TV. The fees collected go to the BBC, whose channels are transmitted from all relay transmitters. The BBC only pay the cost of broadcasting their own services, there is no subsidy for other multiplexes or channels.
The commercial multiplex operators simply decided that it wasn't cost effective - that is, it wouldn't bring in enough revenue - to broadcast from any more transmitters. The regulator, Ofcom, decided that they could not be forced.
