    Take a warning, if you're going to be, er, "sarcy", you need to add the appropriate emoticons or some other method to tell posters that. This is a thread relating to a sports broadcaster in which there have been a lot of legitimate questions about content and you didn't put anything in your post to indicate that you were anything other than serious.

    If you download the freesat app on google play store, you can view the freesat epg including freesports

    Freesport have live coverage of The Bathurst 1000 at 1 am on Sunday. Well worth a watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 801 ✭✭✭lucast2007us

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,389 ✭✭✭FRIENDO

    Well would you look at that - so it is! Presume it's also on TG4, but if this was advertised in Ireland, might get some people thinking about freesat.

    Not listed for TG4 that I can see .......

    On Sunday TG4

    Clare Vs Tipp
    Kerry Vs Donegal

    Well then that is interesting. A GAA match which is being televised live, which is FTA on satellite TV only.

    I presume Freesports is also on the Irish Sky epg? If these GAA matches start getting some exclusive airtime on Freesports, then this has the potential to be considered a 'Sky' channel, aka a channel surrounded by the misconception that you have to pay Sky lots of money every month to receive it (despite the name!).


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,147 ✭✭✭jelutong


    Not on the Irish epg. Can be added to other channels.

    Tg4 only ever show the Sunday games. Eir Sport show them on Saturday


  • Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 11,410 Mod ✭✭✭✭icdg


    They are games for which Eir Sport hold the rights in Ireland. Now, as an aside, Premier Sports can show all GAA League and Championship games aside from those on Sky - not just those Eir Sport are covering - so FreeSports could probably show the TG4 games too. I have a hunch they won’t though. Indeed Premier Sports is showing Kerry v Donegal on Sunday, but that won’t be on FreeSports.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,389 ✭✭✭FRIENDO


    A great weekend for GAA on free TV.
    I always missed the games on a Saturday evening, hopefully Freesports keep this up.

    It seems to be hurling this week, I wonder will they show the football next week


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,389 ✭✭✭FRIENDO


    Just seen this on the Freesports Facebook page
    Somebody asked will this be every week.

    "Hi, we are showing the first 2 live games. All other games will be shown on Premier sports live and FreeSports will be showing them repeated!"

    Not since last February when they posted "May approx"
    Should also be HD on Freesat when they go on Sky, according to a twitter post.

    Doesn't seem like it ...... :(
    FreeSports will turn High Definition on Sky and Virgin from July.

    Ya I think they mentioned a few months back that FreeSports would be going HD.

    I would like to hope so, but did not read anything to convince me so far :)

    Freesports announced it on Twitter, when HD on Sky it should also be on Freesat

    From the above press release

    http://www.premiersports.com/pro-14/pro-14
    In addition, FreeSports will turn High Definition on Sky and Virgin from July.

    I would read that as subbed for HD and SD on FTA. Hopefully I'm wrong.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,809 ✭✭✭Tigerandahalf


    a516digital are saying that Sky and Freesat carry the same feed for freesports so the HD feed could well be on all platforms.

    Just an update about FreeSports HD.

    There is FreeSports EPG info available on a channel added with the SID label 6211.

    Freq: 11876

    Symbol Rate: 27500

    Polarization: H

    No picture or sound is there at the moment. Although I'm guessing that this channel will become FreeSports HD from July.

    Keep your eyes on this channel in the meantime. Post us any updates once new data becomes available.

    Odd, 6211 is the SID of Quest Red+1 on 12382H and also for a blank channel on 12344H.
    I did not expect to see duplicate SIDs.

    I see nothing on 11876H - yet. :)
