Hi.
I live in Skipton (BD231HH)
When are we going to get the full Freeview, instead of Freeview light which has a pathetic amount of channels?
Thanks.
Andy.

Andrew McIntyre: Neither the Skipton or Skipton Town transmitters (both are predicted to serve your postcode) are ever likely to be upgraded as both serve only a few thousand homes, so the commercial broadcasters didn't think it was worth the cost of providing additional channels/multiplexes to a low number of potential viewers.

You may be able to get a signal from the Winter Hill transmitter, which would give you the main COM4/5/6 commercial multiplexes, however you would then receive the BBC1 North West & ITV Granada regions rather than Yorkshire. This would require a new aerial pointed in a different direction and may result in a weaker signal than you have now on some channels. Alternatively, look at getting Freesat.
