Q - I get BTSorts 1 fine, and until Aug 30th, 2013, I got BT Sports 2. Short of a 'factory reset I've tried everything bout cannot BT Sports 2.
Bt say it is an arial problem not a software one? Does not sound logical. The Wenvoe transmitter is aprox 90deg angle to my clear line of site across to the Welsh coast(Kilvey hill?) when set up by the engineer.Is that still the best position? I get 122/130 channels.

Hi. Having the same question:
I am located in Germany and have setup ASTRA 28.2 which I can receive UK stations via Satelite. It is totally unclear to me if I can watch the "free" champions league games from BT Sports.
BT Sports:
"Called BT Sport showcase, this channel will show a minimum of 12 UEFA Champions League matches and 14 UEFA Europa League matches and these will be available to anyone to watch for free. Each participating British team will be shown at least once."This sound to me that I could also watch the free transmissions? Looking in to details I can' find a frequency for BT Showcase only the info the it is on channel 59.
Can anyone help?
Matthias from Germany

BT Sport channels are now only available for a subscription in the UK. They were only 'free' to internet customers of BT for a time but they have now introduced a feee for the service.

R Bagley:

Please will you supply a full post code of ypur location so we can look up which transmitter you should be using and whether it transmits HD signals and carries Showcase. Not all transmitters provide a full range of channels and not all provide all the HD channels as yet.

I assume your new Sony TV has a DVB-T2 tuner that receives all the HD channels such as BBC1 HD on 101?
