Stephen Wright: FreeSports is broadcast on the COM8 multiplex, which is a temporary service available from 30 main transmitters giving coverage of around 70% of UK households. COM7 & COM8 will not be added to any further transmitters and are expected to close by 2022. Commercial broadcasters wishing to broadcast on Freeview purchase capacity from a multiplex operator which gives them coverage from a defined list of transmitters, with capacity on multiplexes available from a higher number of transmitters (e.g. COM4/5/6 with 90% coverage from around 80 transmitters) being more expensive than capacity on a lower coverage multiplex (e.g. COM7/8).
