Robert: Probably not because the Commercial broadcasters have opted to transmit from about 80 sites nationwide thereby achieving 90% coverage of the population.

The Commercial operators were invited to increase their coverage, but declined. There are around 1000 or so small relay transmitters including Buxton. For the Commercial operators to broadcast from them would roughly double their transmission costs.

For a fuller explanation, see Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice

I live in New Mills and noticed last night other channels appeared in my EPG but no signal, to name a few included 5*, 5+1, The Zone, QVC, G.O.L.D., Quest etc. I'll have to try retuning tonight and see what happens. I'm on Birch Vale transmitter.

Andy: If you point an aerial (group c/d preferably) to Winter Hill you might find that you are in range for reception of all muxes. Have any of your neighbours got their aerials pointing NW, with rods set horizontal?
