Some did. On ours they offered ITV Yorkshire from belmont as an alternative-but only on the RF passthrough, not through the STB.
Yes Diamond/NTL in Nottingham offered Yorkshire as an alternative to Central for its customers in Lincoln. Only BBC East Midlands on analogue. I wasn't a TV customer of theirs at the time but I was splitting the analogue TV and FM radio signal (which carried Trent FM) from their broadband back in 2003. I seem to remember Bloomberg was available in the clear on VHF.
On digital there was the choice of Central (east) Yorkshire (east) and London (for audio description), as well as a choice of BBC Ones - possibly the same three plus the nations but my memory is hazy.
Going back into the 90s I can remember the Express and Star (Wolverhampton) printing listings for Granada as well as Central, presumably some people in the northern fringes or hilly parts of their distribution patch were able to receive both.
