You can get the two channels for free if you are a BT Broadband customer.
If you rescan your Freeview channel list, there are now three new allocations on the COM6 multiplex.

58: BT Sport 1
59: BT Sport 2
To provide these channels, BT will be moving the Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 channels to online services.

If you are a BT Broadband customer, you can opt to watch the channels from DTT, or you can watch using a Sky box, as long as you have a viewing card (click on BT.com - Personal - Start your order ). You don't need to be a current subscriber. See Digital TV Packages with BT Vision - MyBT Broadband.

The means everything from Soccer AM via Soccer Saturday to Saturday Night Football for free for the day. See Sky Sports kick off biggest Premier League season with free first day - Football Features, Music, Team of the Week, Twitter, Fantasy - Sky Sports.
imo freeview should mean exactly that... no sky sports/espn/bt sports or what ever. maybe 4 mpeg2-sd muxxs and 2 mpeg4-hd muxxs with decent channels and no rubbish smut,shopping ect. if you want pay tv then by all means get sky or cable. another observation is why cant bt sports just sell a cam/card for bt sports using seca/nagra and broadcast via eutelsat 28a/b so anyone could buy there own fta stb with cam slot so they could get all the fta channels from 28.2/5e and bt sports 1/2 if they wanted.. thus not having to use murdochs crippled amstrad boxs. just my personal view on things
