Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Angus transmitter area
Fraser Ballantyne: I guess that you mean "BT Vision" rather than "BBC Vision".
The answer to your question is because the number of channels is dependent on which transmitter you are receiving from; this has nothing to do with BT.
The digital terrestrial television network is a two-tier system. All transmitters carry Public Service channels because the Public Service Broadcasters (PSBs) have an obligation to provide a public service.
The Commercial (COM) licensees only have a requirement to satisfy their own interest, which is to turn a profit. Thus they aren't interested in using the transmitting stations which serve relatively few users.

The difficulty you have is that you are in a valley and the high ground prevents reception from one of the main transmitters (such as Angus) that carry all channels. You have to rely on the transmitter which relays the PSB signals from Angus (it being located on higher ground where it can get a signal).
I think that in order to get anything more than the Freeview Public Service channels you will have to look to the sky (not the bit that Murdoch owns!).
You can get Freesat, a Freesat recorder. Also, Freesat Freetime is the on-demand service:
