The symbol shows the location of the Fremont Point transmitter which serves 30,000 homes. The bright green areas shown where the signal from this transmitter is strong, dark green areas are poorer signals. Those parts shown in yellow may have interference on the same frequency from other masts.

Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Fremont Point mast?

I was curious if the information on this website was correct for Freeview services in the Channel Isles: UK DTT Channel List (Freeview/Top Up TV Anytime) to the link, the Channel Islands have no ITV2, ITV2 +1 and ITV1 HD. According to your site, they do.
Who is correct? I'm presuming you are.

I don't understand though why Fremont Point, the Main transmitter for the Channel Islands does not transmit COM4, COM5 and COM6. All other Main transmitters in the UK seem to, why not this one? Is it to do with interference from France? Lack of available frequencies? Are there plans to transmit the others at a later date?

Hope you can answer my queries.
Thanks. (LL115FQ)

Stuart O.: You seem to be confused. ITV2 +1 is carried on COM4, so it not transmitted from here. It is impossible to remove ITV1 HD and ITV2 from multiplexes PSB3 and PSB2.

The commercial multiplex operators declined to operate from this transmitter because it would be unprofitable to do, and are not under any obligation to do so.

Due to this there are no allocated frequencies so they will not be able to add them in future.

Briantist,
My mistake about ITV2 +1. I meant ITV1 +1.
Think you may have misread my question though in part though I do now understand why COM4, 5 and 6 aren't transmitted to the Islands.
What I said is that the link I provided, it does not list ITV2 or ITV1 HD. It also does not list ITV1 +1 either.

So because that link does not list ITV2, ITV1 +1 or ITV1 HD, people whould look at that link and therefore think that those channels are not transmitted to the Channel Islands.

Whereas your website shows those channels are transmitted to the Channel Islands.

So I was just verifying with you as to which website is correct? The website in the link or your website?

I'm not talking about removing ITV1 HD or ITV2, I'm simply saying that there is no listing of these channels (or ITV1 +1) on the website link I provided for you and others to take a look at to ask as to why those channels are not shown whereas they are shown in the list of channels available for the Channel Islands on your website.

Hope that has explained things and you are able to give me a further explanation.
Thanks.

Stuart O.: I believe it's up to the local Channel 3 licensee to get "Channel 3 +1" and "Channel 3 HD" going - the two larger independent Channel 3 licensees, STV and Ulster TV, insisted on having their own regional services (which is why it took so long to get going). For Ulster, the HD service is currently academic as no terrestrial transmitters have switched over and no advance service is available. Channel TV is by far the smallest licensee, so small that it doesn't do its own presentation (unlike STV and Ulster TV), and is often mistaken for being part of ITV plc. It remains independent, despite the on-screen branding.

Channel TV provided a list of channels that were available at switchover, and it does *not* include an 'ITV' HD service. channelonline.tv

plc's launch announcement for ITV1 +1 says "ITV1+1 will not be launched in the Channel TV region."
