Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sudbury transmitter area
Hi, com 6 is now being transmitted from Rouncefall on UHF channel 37 which incudes Talking Pictures. Com 4 (UHF ch 29) and com 5 (UHF ch 31) will follow in the next few months. Rouncefall will no longer be a "light" transmitter. Sudbury has also moved com 6 to UHF ch 37.
Looking at a few digital tv websites and there doesn't seem any mention of the new line up.
