Your article says at the beginning "you cannot subscribe to the digital packages from the UK"

It is against EU law to discriminate between EU citizens in this way, ( see recent case won by landlady of pub) so you certainly have a legal right to subscribe to other EU country offerings from the UK if you are a private individual.

Nevertheless, it would be helpful if one could get the English commentary via freesat or digital radio, or even over the web. I do speak German, but the commentary is generally not as good.

Hi, is there any chance or likelihood of any dedicated sports channels joining freesat in the near future. I understand that top of the range sports like Sky Sports and the soon to be BT sport channels won't ever be available on Free To Air TV. However, is there a possibility of other less coveted sporting channels such as ESPN classic, Eurosport 2 or motors tv coming to freesat? Any information would be appreciated, thank you.

With a bit of research much great English commentated sport can be seen on the free "German" Eurosport channel. This year I saw every F1 race live, if necessary using German Eurosport or RTL (Sound Off) and Radio 5 live for the English Commentary. Similarly the US Tennis Open using the very comprehensive English commentary stream from the US open website. Plus several world title boxing matches again using Radio 5 live.
I wish I could crack FIS skiing though. Last Year sometimes Asia-Plate TV had English commentary on the web to go with the Eurosport German pictures- anyone know any other English commentary feeds for the skiing as it all starts soon ?

Brian Jobin: How can I get this German Eurosport channel? Is it available to add on a freesat box and if so what are the frequency numbers, symbol rate & LNB polarisation? Thank you for your help in advance?

I recently bought a Humax freesat box and it worked great off my old sky dish BUT I wanted CNN but this seems to be receiving no signal.Does the dish need a small realingnment or perhaps a new LNB. If so can I fix it as a complete novice?

Daniel, to get the free German Eurosport I was talking about you need a dish aligned to Astra 1 at location 19.6E.

Daniel, to answer your other point, Freesat uses Astra sats located at 28.2E so its not the system I was talking about. Unless you have a dual LNB you may be out of luck.

Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 are available Free in English on Hotbird 13E.
Have not switched the the analogue box on for 12 months so only just discovered that all channels have now closed.
Did a quick search. I assume the sat is Hotbird. Whatever it is at 13E. Happy viewing!!!

Hi i have a samsung freesat tv hooked up to a SKY dish, i have noticed lots of references to numbers such as 13E,28E etc. I take it these numbers relate to the compass, so 13E would be 13 degrees East? Is this correct as i am interested in trying to get Eurosport?
