Andrew McArthur: The reason Auchtermuchty is a Freeview "Light" public services only station is quite simply because the commercial interests were not willing to pay the additional running costs involved with additional multiplexes, basically because of the low population involved in the coverage area not appearing as an attractive proposition as far as returns are concerned.

This of course in exactly the same way as does larger companies who hesitate about advertising in the smaller circulation local newspapers.
