Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Stockland Hill transmitter area
Simon Bramley: You can really only contact the channels that you want to watch and ask if they can get the commercial multiplex operators to serve your transmitter. The commercial multiplex operators are SDN Limited and Arqiva Services Limited. SDN is a subsidiary of ITV plc, and they don't have a website or other contact details that I can find. Arqiva Services is a subsidiary of Arqiva: their contact details are at 404 may be difficult to find free frequencies to broadcast from, as the plans were made on the basis that the commercial multiplexes would only broadcast from the 81 sites they did before switchover. When they were asked if they wanted to broadcast from any more sites, they said no. The channels will probably tell you to get Sky. Satellite transmission is much cheaper for them, and they can get some of the subscription revenue. Of the three multiplexes you do get, the BBC are only allowed to carry BBC channels on PSB1 (BBC A), and ITV and Channel 4 only allowed to transmit their own channels on theirs (PSB2/D3+4), plus they have to carry Channel 5's main channel. The HD multiplex is run by the BBC, but they're required to carry any HD channels that Ofcom specify. Currently it's ITV1 HD and 4hd as Channel 5 turned down the offer. (RG47SH)
