Missing channels - Halesowen
I now have great Freeview and Freeview HD from PSB1, PSB2, PSB3 from the Halesowen transmitter but do not get any channels from COM4, COM5 or COM6.
Am I right in assuming that the missing channels will be available using my existing aerial after 28th September 2011 ? I read this date from a posting on this website.
Great informative website by the way !
