Will the LLanddona transmitter ever be upgraded to transmit BBC Four HD.
There is just CBBC HD.

BBC Four HD is currently on Com 7, so unless Llanddonna is going to
get Com 7, or BBC Four HD is moved to BBC B, no.

There's no guarantee COM 7 and 8 will survive the great 700 MHz sell
off. Ironically if they do, the proposal is to move them to a parking
position nationally of Ch 55 and 56 (which will remain available for
broadcasting until 2022) If not, they will be gone before 2020 in all
areas. They were only ever temporary muxes anyway.

However, next step is to ditch SD/HD simulcasting on DTT, in which case
eventually BBC 4 HD should be available to all.

However, life is too short, as suggested, get Freesat
