Donald Clark: This is how it is likely to stay. See here for an explanation:

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

Unless you can receive from another full-service transmitter, then you won't receive the Commercial (COM) channels. In some areas another region's full-service transmitter can overlap and be used in conjunction with the local relay but the hilly terrain you live in probably rules this out.

Judging by the coverage maps on this site, then if you live high up, then you "might" be able to receive the other channels from Lancaster transmitter.

This isn't the answer you might have been hoping for, but I make this simply as quite possibly the only way, if indeed you are lucky enough to have it as a possibility.

Additional channels are also available via satellite, the main free-to-air service being Freesat.
