Jj Dee: Pick HD is broadcast free to air (FTA) on a UK spotbeam, but should be able to be tuned in manually in Ireland. The version of Pick SD without football is still free to air, however the version with football is encrypted free to view (FTV) and should be able to be viewed on a Sky box with a viewing card without any subscription being required (although perhaps cards registered to an Irish address have been blocked).

john elliott: As per my reply to your post the other day, the football is on Pick HD on Freesat channel 147. All channels on Freesat are free to air, they box would not be able to display them if they were encrypted.

Pick has disappeared from my Freeview box when I re-tuned yesterday. I watched the first Premier League match on channel 11 a few days ago. How can I watch Man Utd tonight?

SteveEllard: There have been no technical changes to Pick on Freeview, it is still broadcasting on LCN 11. Have you also lost Dave (LCN 19) which is broadcast on the same multiplex?

SteveEllard:

Have you tried a further retune, your transmitter may be listed for Planned Engineering and the multiplex may have been on low power or off-air last time you retuned,. You may have to try several times. Without a full postcode, we can't advise on your predicted reception.

Have you considered broadcasting LA Law? This was an intriguing law programme and addictive like Suits.
