Clacton (Essex, England) Freeview Light transmitter

I was speaking to a local aerial fitter today and he told me that the new Clacton transmitter will have a very limited range of channels. If this is the case, it seems we will need to receive our signal from Sudbury to receive all the available channels after switchover. I can't therefore see the point of this new transmitter if it isn't going to give us the full Freeview channel line-up.

Do you know exactly what channels we will receive from this new transmitter.

Many thanks.

Thanks for that, but when you compare the list of available channels shown on the Freeview website against those shown above for the Clacton transmitter, there are a lot of digital services missing (Yesterday, Sky 3, Dave, Quest, Fiver, Five USA, Sky News, QVC etc etc). Why won't we be able to receive these channels like everyone else?

Thanks

Where I live in Clacton I am in line of sight of the new Clacton transmitter and get all the available channels with a strong signal.

The only problem is that when I tune to ITV HD, I get a fab HD picture BUT when the local news comes on, I only get Meridian News? Since I live in the Anglia region and our transmitter is in the Anglia region, can you please tell me why on earth I only get Meridian News when watching ITV HD?

Many Thanks
