Can I receive British Eurosport for free?


Can I receive British Eurosport for free?

No.

British Eurosport is part of the Sky "News & Events Pack" (from £16.50 per month), the Virgin Media "L" package (from £9 a month).

There are no plans to add this channel to Freeview.

Eurosport is offers the following flavours:

    Eurosport (German/English), FREE ANALOGUE, Astra 1C #4
  • Eurosport (German), FREE ANALOGUE, Astra 1H, #77
  • Eurosport (German), FREE DIGITAL, Astra 1M, #91
  • British Eurosport, Sky Digital package, Astra 2A #8
  • Eurosport (Spanish), Digital+ package, Astra 1E #26 and #46
    Eurosport (Czech/Hungarian),UPC Direct, Astra 1G #79
  • Eurosport (Polish), Digital Pay, Astra 1G
  • Eurosport (Dutch, English), Canal+NL, Astra 1H #97
  • Eurosport France (French), Canal Satellite Pay, Astra 1E #76
  • Eurosport News (Spanish), Digital+ Pay, Astra 1E #60
  • Eurosport News (English), Sky Digital, Astra 2D #55
  • Eurosport News (English), UPC Direct, Astra 1G #95

However, your Sky Digital box cannot receive analogue reception and has no support for dual dish (or dual LNB) configuration, and you cannot subscribe to the digital packages from the UK.

I agree with George. Something at Crystal Palace must have changed since Christmas - possibly a less powerful signal to save on electricity.

My problem is only occasional - every week or so - and then only in patches of a second or two at a time, resulting in a blocky picture and lost sound.

It could be the aerial connections as suggested by Briantist's link, but it seems strange that I am not the only one where this has happened since Christmas.

Eric Brightwell: I would suggest that this is more likely be caused by the vegetation in the signal path and the fact that you don't have line-of-sight to the transmitter. The high ground on which Cookham Dean sits is two miles away of which there are trees on.

If it is worse during high winds then this would certainly tend to suggest trees might be playing their part.

We've defo established Eurosport isn't on free view here in the uk. If you've got the satellite receivers, the dual install described above will do the trick.

Other methods: yes, the evil sky empire or the sloppy/useless Virgin Brandon empire.

If you have a smart TV and its connected to broadband, you can subscribe to Eurosport Player (£3/month w/1-year sub or £5/month Kay as you go) then use the smart TV's Eurosport app. Samsung's Smart TV just released the app, I've downloaded it's subscribed and am happy as a clam. No need to pay for sky or virgin for me now. Yummy.

Referring to my post on 25 May 2013 regarding an occasional blocky picture and lost sound from Crystal Palace, it seems that the cause is likely to be interference from incorrectly suppressed electric equipment, such as cars and motorbikes. A lower signal strength from Crystal Palace will obviously make the situation worse, although not directly causing it.

What is the latest position (Sept 2013) regarding Eurosport with English commentary. Apart from the Sky rip off platform. Are there any broadcasts from any other Sat FTA, I live in southern Spain and look at Astra 2, & Astra1 on a 1.2 offset dish with multi feed LNBs I understand the Astra 2 reception is likely to go bad soon as they change to different transponders etc. So I might have to increase my dish size in anycase.

Please post a question, answer or commentIf you have Freeview reception problems before posting a question your must first do this Freeview reset procedure then see: Freeview reception has changed, Single frequency interference, and Freeview intermittent interference.

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
