We have recently moved to Newport and are disappointed to find that channels such as Film4, E4, ITV4 seem not to be not available via BTVisionfrom this tramnsmitter whereas they were in Herefordshire.Or maybe we haven't got things set up properly?

Chris Carver: You have it correct; Newport Bay transmitter only relays PSB channels.
The now has a two-tier terrestrial television transmitter network. The Commercial (COM) networks only broadcast from 81 of the largest transmitters and don't consider it worth their while to include the others because it would roughly double their cost of transmission whilst only adding around 10% of the population to what they already have.

Unless you can receive all channels from Preseli, or another full-service transmitter, then the only way to get the channels you mention free-to-air is via satellite (Freesat being a popular choice).
