Laurence Clark: TalkTalk TV adds a number of internet streamed channels to those received via your aerial, so if your can get Freesports with the aerial connected directly to your TV then you should also be able to receive it via the TalkTalk TV box if it is connected to the same aerial. What signal strength and quality readings do you get on Freesports when the aerial is connected directly to your TV?

Freesports used to be available on Freesat, however the broadcaster seems to have decided some time ago that they are no longer prepared to pay the fee to be listed on the Freesat EPG. Most satellite receivers allow channels to be tuned in manually.
