Their official website is Home | FreeSports and the schedule is on Home | FreeSports tv-schedule.html and I note it says "Listings subject to change".
I doubt we can provide any real help on this except suggest you check things like did it record at the time slot you expected the programme to be on? What listing did you use - it may not have been accurate?

LCN64 Freesports is on the COM8 multiplex - for a list of which channels are on which multiplex see Channel listings | Freeview
The COM7 and COM8 multiplexes are not as high power as the other multiplexes and you need a wideband aerial to get all the multiplexes from Fenton (or come to that Sutton Coldfield), is there a possibility you still have an old aerial (Group A)?
Are you still having problems with channel 25, by which I assume you mean UHF25 which is for the SDN multiplex?
Certainly with the correct aerial, you are predicted to have no problem receiving all multiplexes at your location.

My postcode is GU102JR. I cannot get Freesports on my tv although I can get all other Freeview HD channels.
Why and what can I do about it, please ?

Peter Berry:

So if I've understood you correctly, as Freesports is on the COM8 multiplex, you are getting all the other channels on this multiplex which include BBC4 HD, QVC HD, QVC Beauty HD, Quest HD, CBeebies HD, 5Star+1, NOW XMAS, Together TV+1, PBS America +1, and Forces TV.
See Channel listings | Freeview for a full list of which channels are on which multiplex.

Unfortunately, I can't see what the Freeview Detailed Coverage checker is giving for predicted coverage at your postcode because it seems broken for the main multiplexes at your postcode. However the Summary says you should get all 143 Freeview channels (include the Radio & Local ones) and is showing (good) predicted coverage of the local multiplex from Crystal Palace, which is where I assume your aerial is pointed (at bearing 55 deg. so that's slightly E of NE).

If it's just this programme that's missing, it could be due to the set's memory needing clearing.
So, unplug your aerial and do an automatic retune - this should clear the memory as no channels will be found.
Plug the aerial back in and then repeat the automatic retune which should restore all the multiplexes and channels.

It is certainly not a linear channel available on Freeview, see Channel listings | Freeview
AFAIK it's a subscription service that's available by streaming but only in the US.

Channel 252 FreeSports has disappeared from my listings without any warning. Any idea why?

Gordon Eyles:

I understand Freesports have pulled it from Freesat because apparently "it can't agree on commercial terms with the satellite TV provider."
It's obviously a bit of a mess because the channel is no longer listed in the header on the home page, but it's still mentioned in the FAQs ! Can't spot any explanation on their website.

Rxtv log has posted this -

"Most affected viewers have two options to restore access to FreeSports:

Live stream online via the FreeSports Player
Manually tuning their existing Freesat receiver although some devices, such as LG Smart TVs with in-built Freesat force viewers to choose between Freesat or a general unsorted list of free-to-air satellite channels.

The manual tuning parameters for FreeSports HD are:

Satellite: Astra 28.2
Frequency: 11426
Polarisation: Vertical
Symbol Rate: 29500
FEC: 8/9
Service ID: 52575

It's still available on Freeview at LCN64 now on COM7 UHF C55.

Is there any reason your publish a schedule? It almost never bears any relation to what's being shown.
At the moment, we are supposed to be watching Canadian cricket, whilst on screen is a film about a load of people climbing up walls
