Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Mendip transmitter area
John Alexander: BBC Four HD won't be expanding it's coverage any time soon as it is broadcast on a temporary commercial multiplex (COM7) which is only available from 30 main transmitters covering around 70% of the UK population. This arrangement is expected to remain until sometime around the end of the decade when the BBC want to cease SD transmissions which will free up capacity for all BBC channels to broadcast in HD with full national coverage.
