Visitors staying in the area might be a little disappointed when they turn on their televisions, where most areas of the UK have up to 99 television channels, we have only a few. We have the old basics BBC 1, 2, 4, / ITV 1,2, 3, / Ch4, Ch5, More 4, Film 4 plus a few 'Plus 1' channels, but don't expect to be able to watch Top Gear or Dave.
Radio too can be intermittent due to the hills, Digital radio is very rare.
But if you have an internet connection, you can view most TV channels and listen to your favourite radio using WOO-TV
