Channel 4 and Channel 5 are entirely independent of the ITV organisation. As such, they select which transmitters to be available on, if at all, and what type of service they provide. As they are commercial operations, the potential for income from advertisers is a key factor in their thinking. Each service costs them cash to operate so they will want an income stream large enough to cover their costs.
