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

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.

Eurosport International is available from Astra 1 in English. Rumours that it has been dropped are incorrect. I suspect that for as long as the UK has a large military presence in Germany this service will continue. I even wonder whether the English language feed might be moved to the digital stream sometime in the future. I get perfect reception in Surrey and hope to get the same analogue Eurosport signal in the French Alps next winter. The signal should be even stronger than here in the UK.

The info at the top of this page with regard to Astra 19E seems correct. Having recently upgraded to digital from analogue, I now get German Eurosport free on Digital at frequency 12226H. You can as per discussions above still get the analogue signal with English Audio, but according to Astra websites this will stop next April.

Hi I have a freeview box that needed a sky card and I have a sat dish etc.I have a sky card but it was not activated. Does anyone know if it is still usable and how would I get it activated please?

Pheenix: You can't put a Sky card in anything other than a Sky box.

Could everyone get together and make an online petition to get something done about these prices that BskyB are charging?
Also something needs to be done about channels that do not belong to BskyB being encrypted.
OFCOM make out that all of this is not within their remit and that Sky can charge what they want?

Hi Brian,
Do you mean for me to create the Petition?

Michael: It would be a good way of making the point you describe. In addition, there is a new Broadcasting Act in the pipeline, so now is the time to draw attention to rules that require changing.

Should my points focus on Skies Prices and also the fact that many of these english language channels are encrypted by Sky and paid for in advertising revenues? Should the aim of the petition be that it is fair of Sky to charge for the movie channels, Live Sports and Box Office, but all other channels should be free to view, especially those that are not owned by Sky, Like UKTV, TCM, E! etc
