Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sandy Heath transmitter area
Mr Brian Brackley:
If you mean the Sony Movies Classic channel, Sony changed multiplexes for a lot of it's channels last year and this is one of the ones only transmitted on Local Multiplexes (the one where you have a Local station at LCN7 in your EPG), see Channel listings | Freeview
The Luton transmitter is a "Light" transmitter and only transmits the 3 PSB multiplexes, none of the COM or Local multiplexes if that is the transmitter you receive rather than your "location".
Also note there is an error in the table at the top of the page, UHF45 is the PSB3/BBCB HD mux, not a local one.
If it's not the transmitter you receive, we'd need a full postcode to look at the predicted reception at your location.
