Aberystwyth is covered by normal digital television transmissions and satellite broadcasts, but not by cable TV companies.
Most of Aberystwyth can receive strong digital terrestrial TV signals from the major transmitter at Blaenplwyf, about 6 km south. The old analogue signal ceased transmitting in March 2010.
Parts of these areas cannot receive a signal from Blaenplwyf and are instead covered by smaller relay transmitters. These carry a more restricted range of core digital / Freeview channels.
Aberystwyth receives all BBC radio channels and some commercial channels. Those that can be received clearly are as follows:
Ireland's RTE1 can be received on 567 MW and 252 LW.
Talk Sport and Absolute Radio do not specifically cover Aberystwyth, although very patchy reception may be available on 1053 and 1215 MW respectively.
Digital radio broadcasts now cover Aberystwyth and area - both BBC and commercial. For a full list of stations currently available, see Digital One's coverage checker.
