BT Sport 1 and 2: free TV, for some... Sky Sports 1 free, for all, for day

Changes to the pay TV services provided over the digital terrestrial network will provide the two new BT Sports channels in place of Sky Sports 1 and 2. But you can also get the channels for free if you have a Sky box - as long as you have a card.

published on UK Free TV

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.

57: BT Sport
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.

BT Sports 1 and 2 - including HD - for Free for a year

You don't have to pay to get BT Sports 1 and 2 - but you DO need to be a BT Broadband customer.

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.

Sky Sports 1 for free. For one day only. Saturday 17th August.

Not to be outdone - well, for a day anyway, Pick TV (on Freeview and You View) on Saturday 17th August will show Sky Sports 1 for free.

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

mdt: "Freeview" does not include subscription services carried on digital terrestrial television (DTT). However, as they are on DTT then they will appear on receivers.

mdt: i understand that dave my point is that the bandwidth is limited on DTT so imo it should be for free services beit sd or hd and not pay-tv in any guise

Deal with Sky's overpriced underspec satellite receivers or BT Broadband's evil channel-hopping kit? No sport is worth that! I hope RAI Sport and Eurosport Deutschland remain free to air for many years to come!
