Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Black Hill transmitter area
I tried to get Freeview when I first moved in last year. We live on a ground floor flat at G13 1JZ and sadly the building doesn't have a roof antenna. I bought a random aeriel from amazon - (http://www.amazon.co.uk/August-Amplified-Digital-Antenna-Booster-Black/dp/B006I2WRSC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1430480590&sr=8-1&keywords=tv+aerial) and got absolutely nothing. I was using it at the windows with an extension cable.
So I gave up but am looking to try again. I didn't realize how close I was to this transmitter and wonder if this was the problem. I'm getting another aeriel first to see if that was the problem but wonder if there's anything else I can do. As I'm so close it doesn't make sense that I would be getting totally nothing through (unless I'm in some very weird specific hotspot).
