The LyngSat listings do not use the official ITV names for regions and contain errors (such as wrongly calling ITV West "ITV West Country West", as it is part of the HTV Wales and West Licence).

The ITV Channel[s Islands] region does not appear in the satellite listings, nor does STV North (Dundee micro region).

Non-matching regions

Border is not divided into England and Scotland parts by ITV. However, the BBC splits the Border regions between BBC Scotland and BBC North East and Cumbria.

ITV Central (South micro region) adds the Ridge Hill transmitter group to BBC Oxford. Ridge Hill transmitter group is part of BBC West Midlands.

ITV Meridian (East micro region) is similar to BBC South East, plus Midhurst, minus Whitehawk Hill

ITV Meridian (South Coast micro region) is similar to BBC South, but with Midhurst added, and without Hannington or Whitehawk Hill.

ITV Thames Valley is the Hannington transmitter area.

ITV Tyne Tees plus Border England with the Isle of Man is the same as BBC North East and Cumbria

Granada has the Isle of Man, BBC North West doesn't.

BBC West is similar to ITV West, but the ITV also has a Ridge Hill service.

BBC Scotland is STV Central (Edinburgh micro region) and STV Central (Glasgow micro region) and STV North (Aberdeen micro region) and STV North (Dundee micro region) and Border's transmitters in England added together.



Matching BBC and ITV regions


Anglia East matches BBC East
Anglia West matches BBC Cambridge
Central (East) matches BBC East Midlands
Channel matches BBC Channel Islands
London matches BBC London
UTV matches BBC Northern Ireland
Wales matches BBC Wales
West Country matches BBC South West
Yorkshire (Belmont) maches East Yorkshire/Lincolnshire
Yorkshire (Emley Moor micro region) matches BBC North

James: 25 Cambridge Transmitter. I assume you mean the Sandy Heath Transmitter in Befordshire which serves Beds, Bucks, Cambs, Herts, Norhants,Suffolk and parts of Norfolk, Lincs, Leics and Essex? Cambridge is hardly the correct name I would have thought Sandy Beds would have been more correct.

It will be Sandy Heath. This was an amendment to the original list on this page but I think it related to the Cambridge area - but yes it will be Sandy Heath.

Just to point out as well, Channel 5 Region 4 (Scotland) is seen in sub-region 12, not Channel 5 Region 2 (South Central).

Hope the other info here is useful.

Cheers

James: Looks right apart from:

65 Whitehawk Hill transmitter area: same as 10
68 Midhurst transmitter area: same as 9
