The reason it is as it is is because the commercial channels that you can't receive broadcast only from those transmitters that they wish to.
They transmit from about 80 of the largest transmitters in the UK. They were invited to extend their coverage, but declined. To broadcast from the 1000 or so relay (or small filler-in) transmitters would have roughly doubled the cost of transmission. As their objective is to generate profit from advertisers, it is not surprising that they didn't wish to do this when it would mean only an extra 8% of the population being able to watch their broadcasts.
