M Walker: West Runton is a Freeview lite transmitter, which only broadcasts around 20 SD and 6 HD channels, whereas at your caravan you must be receiving the full Freeview service from a main transmitter. BT TV combines Freeview channels received via your aerial with subscription channels delivered via your broadband connection, so whilst you would get all of BT's subscription channels as long as you have a reliable broadband connection, you wouldn't get all of the free to air commercial channels you currently get via your Sky box.

You could cancel your Sky subscription and still receive all of the free to air channels via your Sky box, however you would be unable to record (or playback any previous recordings) as Sky require an active subscription in order to use the Sky+ recording functionality. If you have a Sky Q box, these are only provided on loan from Sky and must be returned if you are no longer a subscriber, otherwise Sky will deactivate the box, whilst also charging a non-return fee (and still insist it is returned anyway). The non-return does not apply if you have a Sky+/HD box which remains yours to do as you wish with.

If you provide a full postcode, we can check whether you might be able to receive more channels from another transmitter, which may make your decision easier.

M walker:

Well there you are, StevensOnln1 was typing his reply not knowing I was doing mine at the same time and has covered the Sky issues.
So as we've both said, full postcodes to look at predicted reception, but your decision may in any event be easier with the information we've both posted.

Christopher Smith: West Runton is a Freeview Lite transmitter, it does not (and probably never will) broadcast most commercial channels such as GB News. If you provide a full postcode (NR27 covers a wide area) we can check whether you might be able to receive GB News and many other commercial channels from another transmitter. Alternative, you could look at getting Freesat, or watch online if you have a reasonable broadband connection.

Whilst on holiday & tuned to the West runton transmitter, ITV 3 HD tunes to Meridian in kent it also does this at home from the Sudbury transmitter. Why should this be.

Geoffrey Hampton: Presumably you mean ITV HD, as ITV 3 isn't available in HD on Freeview. There are currently only a handful of ITV regions available in HD on Freeview, with Meridian being broadcast in HD across large parts of the south of England. This is expected to change next year as the PSB3 multiplex which carries BBC One HD, BBC Two HD, ITV HD, Channel 4 HD & Channel 5 HD becomes available for every region, rather than the current situation where only a handful of regional versions of PSB3 exist.
