joe phillips : You should try resetting your box, this being achieved by carrying out either a "first time installation" - "default setting" - or just plain "reset", as all three procedures have the same end result of clearing the boxes memory of everything stored in it, including glitches.

By the way, ITV4 is on the same multiplex as (18) 4Music, (19) Yesterday
etc, and if the reset procedure does not resolve the problem, then the
model number of the box plus your location (post code or one from nearby)
will be required.

You do not need internet to receive Sky. You do need a dish mounted externally and in accord with the planning rules, see Planning Portal - Satellite,TV and Radio Antenna but note that there are a few differences relevant to Scotland. If you ive in a 'multiple occupation' building, such as a block of flats, you should check the rules for that situation. If the accommodation is rented, then check with your property owner or their representative as their permission may be required.
The alternative is FreeSat, see Freesat - Subscription free HD Satellite TV through a Digital Box for a guide to their channels. They have as little motor sport as Freeview though.
For Sky you will need to take a subscription that includes the Sport services, though some are not happy with the amount of football shown. Sky would supply a box free of charge and they advice having a telephone point close by to connect to the Sky box. See Sky Shop for information on what Sky offer and how much it would cost.
A post code often helps those contributing here to determine what the options are as some parts of the UK have difficulties receiving satellite signals due to tall buildings, mountains, etc. Likewise for Freeview reception advice.
Hope that helps.

If you can not watch or support team sky on euro sport why support and pay for sky TV.

Paul :

Not everyone wants to watch or support 'Team Sky'. There are other sports shown on Eurosport that many people are interested in.
