    Default Freesports

    For those of you using terrestrial freeview, try a fresh channel scan and you should find a new channel on ch95 that aims to launch on 31st August.

    The people behind this new "Freesports" channel are from setanta.

    Details below.
    http://www.a516digital.com/2017/07/n...to-launch.html

    Official website below but just a GoDaddy holding page at the moment.
    http://freesports.tv/

    They plan to launch on Satellite and Cable also as the terrestrial coverage will only reach about 75% of the UK.

    Just to add to the original post.

    This channel has now gone live, the website appears to be fully working too as below.

    https://www.freesports.tv/

    Worth a look on terrestrial Ch95, Sky Ch424, Freesat Ch252, Talktalk Ch95 and BT Ch95.

    Never bothered with DVB-T for yonks now, SS. I think 3G and 4G have screwed the reception signals, TBH... Every time I do try and watch it, it's blocky, jittery, freezing. I update, but same issues after a rescan...

    I have a top class Terrestrial wideband aerial, perfectly aligned to Sandy, Beds. All in all, DVB-T is an absolute pile of shite!

    Cheers- AL

    There is some truth in 3g and 4g creating problems, in my industry we are having big issues with Ofcom and 3g/4g providers transmitting at higher levels than licenced, that is interfering with our safety critical coms. It is hard to prove though with Ofcom.

    However, DVB-T is pretty good here from Emley Moor, a decent signal but I did invest in a good quality antenna and self installed/aligned.

    Add a filter and manually scan the frequencies that your aerial is pointing towards.
