There is a related report from Ofcom - http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/broadcasting/tv/emphasising-psb-localness/ - which is mostly about EPG prominence.

P25 of the report talks about it a bit. There's a comment that "must carry" does not mean "carry for free", so I think the where possible just means where carried.

There is also TG4 currently broadcasting from Divis in analogue, no reason why that couldn't be converted to a digital mux.

If you're buying a new TV anyway, it's worth getting a Freeview HD one. Not least because it's highly likely that more muxes will migrate over to DVB-T2 eventually, and you'll be in the same...
