Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Stockland Hill transmitter area
I have been trying to decide between Freeview & Freesat for a system to replace my now defunct crt tv. I have read conflicting advice about the survival possibilities of these 2 platforms (eg, Freesat will win out because it has much greater capacity for HD chanels; Freeview will win out because it's not dependent on satellites it doesn't own). What's the danger of making the wrong choice, as those who plumped for Betamax rather than VHS did not so long ago? Any advice will be gratefully received.

Ian Turpin - Either way you will be on safe ground as far as the survival of the platforms are concerned. You can get a modern LCD/LED TV with both tuners onboard. A "Freesat" or "Freeview" PVR will give you more flexibility.
If You are served by a "Freeview Lite" transmitter then "Freesat" is the better option.
Although "Freesat" is a relatively new platform - not a Broadcaster as such - but providing an EPG it is backed by the BBC and ITV and it's more than meeting expectations as far as take up is concerned.
