What you have to be aware of is that VM network infrastructure only covers around 45% of the country. This is made up of numerous franchise areas that were built by 30 to 40 companies in the 1990s. Building these proved too expensive for a lot of these companies. The majority either went bust with incomplete network builds, or merged into larger & larger companies.
Banbury was originally linked to the Oxford franchise, but due to financial pressures the network services never left the bounds of Oxford. There was however some progress toward Bicester which was later abandoned. VM have now added to this (it was only a few miles short) & set up full fibre services. Banbury is not so lucky. There is absolutely no infrastructure between Bicester & Warwick. Also Warwick is a West Midlands franchise & build out from this direction would not be possible.
Even if it did happen, the future of linear channel TV services is finite. Streaming internet services like Netflix now account for nearly half of all TV viewing. With advertising revenue going down & production costs rising TV channel owners are going to find it harder & harder to justify their existence in a few years time.
