I'm trying to find Eurosport for my grandparents, as the channel is showing a lot of their favourite sport which is snooker. However I do not want to pay for a sky subscription for them as it would be the only channel they would watch.

They currently have a non-subscription Sky digibox and switchovered freeview.

Thanks in advance for any help

Bruce - Without a SKY subscription the only means of watching Eurosport is with a "Free to Air" Satellite receiver and a Satellite dish set up for Astra at 19 degrees South East. Audio though is in German.

Hi Briantist,

I use Les Touillets transmitter in Guernsey which you listed as having ITV1+1 & ITV2 available. My TV lists these channels in its lineup but when selected I just get, "No signal". Why? All the other channels are fine.

Hi, I have a sky subscription and would like freesat in another room. If I connect from the dish to a freesat box could I use a non digital TV with it or do I need a new TV as well?

To put the record straight - you can still (at 6 December 2011) receive Eurosport (the proper international version) Free to Air in English on analogue satellite at 19E 1509 MHz. This channel is mainly intended for the German audience, but English audio is also available by setting the audio to stereo 7.02 MHz. The German audio is on the "Radio" audio setting on my Strong 1500 receiver.

Check and search for "Eurosport" and you will see all of the digital channels, and just one analogue channel (in brown). This does not show that there is English audio available, but there definitely is!!! If you check Wikipedia this does show "(analogue, German and English)" on the right hand side. If you have the channel in German edit the channel settings and as you go down the audio options the audio will change from German to English to give you a clue of which one to select.

In addition, it is against EU law to discriminate between satellite viewers in different EU countries, so you can now legally buy any EU decoder card subscription on the same terms as the EU locals - thanks to the pub landlady who fought Sky in the Courts and won!! I don't know which one is the best value as I still watch in analogue. When my Sony packs up and I get an HD television I will let you know!

Barry: You don't need a digital TV to use a Freesat box.

Clive DuPort: Due to licencing issues, the channels are blank on your transmitter.
