You can get free Eurosport in English but you have to work for it.

As pointed out, you can get Eurosport Germany (FTA @ 19.2 degrees) but only in German. However, you can also get Eurosport Poland( @ 13 degrees). This is encrypted for video but not audio and includes an English audio feed.

You therefore need two LNBs and two feeds supplying two set-top boxes. One for video and one for audio. If your TV allows you can feed audio/video separately into it, or you can feed the audio through a sound system.

If you already have a dish you can fit a 6 degree dual monoblock LNB (£26 on Ebay) and use two cheap chinese digital receivers (£13 each on Ebay).

Most Smartphones/iPhones have satfinder apps to help you align the dish.

I got a used LNB for £15 and the two STBs for £26. Even cheaper is if you have a couple of old dishes you can fix up individually.

It was worth it for me as my web is too slow for EurosportPlayer and I get lovely Eurosport pictures on my plasma for an outlay of under £50.
