Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Limavady transmitter area
Aaron : Because your expectation is too great.
The Strabane transmitter broadcasts all Public Service channels, as do all other 1,000+ transmitters.
The Licence Fee goes to the BBC and, as a Public Service Broadcaster, you have the BBC.
The Commercial channels broadcast where they wish to invest in the kit to do so. They have no obligation to provide a service, only turn a profit, which is why they don't bother with the transmitters that will give them relatively few viewers.

Although above it says there is no reported problem on the Strabane Mast, Since the Lightening on Thurs afternoon 7th Nov, myself and my neighbour are having viewing problems - loss of signal on all channels expect RTE which we receive from Raphoe. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
