    Bump for more live football, I think this has come from Eleven Sports being forced to cut costs and sell rights.

    The EPG is not showing it yet but there are two games on Saturday

    5:15 pm LIVE Serie A Napoli v Sampdora
    Napoli take on Marco Giampaolo's Sampdoria side at the Stadio San Paolo.

    7:25 pm LIVE Serie A Juventus v Parma
    Champions Juventus play host to Parma at the Juventus Stadium.

    and two from the Eredivisie on Sunday

    11:10 am LIVE Eredivisie Excelsior v Feyenoord
    All the action from the latest round of the Dutch Eredivisie.

    1:25 pm LIVE Eredivisie
    PSV v Sittard All the action from the latest round of the Dutch Eredivisie.

    Plus the usual two Portuguese matches in the early evening

    EPG info could be much better - not as detailed as Sky, BT or Eurosport. Almost an afterthought.

    We’ve plenty of discussion on the topic over in Broadcasting, but yes that’s exactly what’s happened - Premier Sports have acquired a package of rights to Serie A and other continental leagues (not La Liga) from Eleven Sports and expect a lot of these games to show up on FreeSports in the remainder of the season - particularly on Pro14 weekends and during the Allianz Leagues.

    Will Irish viewers be able to watch Munster play Southern Kings this Friday 15th February on Freesports?


  • Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 11,491 Mod ✭✭✭✭icdg


    Unfortunately, it appears the lovely people at FreeSports (Setanta) don’t tell us in advance what programmes are blocked. Even it is though, just tune in the FTA version and watch it on that.

    I would expect not, any live Pro14 has been blocked on FreeSports Irish epg as far as I know, of course you can just tune in the FTA version to get around that.

    Excellent. At long last; for satellite viewers it's getting an upgrade.

    We have been here before .Will it happen this time.


  • Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 11,491 Mod ✭✭✭✭icdg


    The tweet is phrased in such a way that the version on the Irish Sky EPG night not be included, unfortunately.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,061 ✭✭✭✭Harry Palmr


    I would't take much note of wording - just fire them a tweet and ask.


  • Registered Users Posts: 112 ✭✭brandonviewer


    Anyone know what the story is on their coverage of the Toulon tournament?
    I tuned into channel 422 on my free to air sky box last night to watch Ireland v Mexico but they were showing motor bike racing from Sweden.
    I have an English card in my box.
    I then tried to get channel 429 but this is not on the epg.
    Anyone got any ideas?
    Thanks in advance


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,295 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    The frequency for FreeSports HD is up now. But it is only showing colour bars & EPG data at the moment.

    Freesports have Copa America (not sure how much is live) coming up.


  • Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 11,491 Mod ✭✭✭✭icdg


    Premier Sports are showing the whole thing live. I’m not sure much of it will be on FreeSports - however they will be showing the Concacaf Gold Cup around the same time.

    Think they've 2 channels, FreeSports ROI & FreeSports UK

    The game was live on FreeSports ROI but they were advertising motorsport in the UK at that time


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,090 ✭✭✭RadioRetro


    The first semi-final between Japan and Mexico is on now (15.45) to be followed by Ireland's tie against Brazil.


  • Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 11,491 Mod ✭✭✭✭icdg

    My understanding is that the ROI and UK versions of FreeSports are identical except for Pro14 coverage. Either way the Toulon Tournament is being shown in the UK too.

    Great to see this eventually ...... hopefully it remains FTA.

    is that freesports uk or Roi?

    do you have the full tune in details for other channels on a sky box
    thank you


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,061 ✭✭✭✭Harry Palmr


    Freesports is free for all who can pick up Sky/Freesat just tune it in.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,482 ✭✭✭galtee boy

    This is Freesports UK and no guarantee that it will appear on Sky ROI EPG.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,061 ✭✭✭✭Harry Palmr


    It'll be on the FTA list though. Does it really matter where it is if you know where it is??

    The other channels menu on Sky is a no man's land, it's a pain to access it, particularly on Q, can't record, pause live etc. If I really want to watch something I'll go in there, but half the time, I forget it exists. Admittedly, a free to air box is easier, you can organize the channel list to suit yourself.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,713 ✭✭✭lertsnim


    No audio and the picture is glitchy. I recall similar issues the last time Freesports HD appeared but only on some boxes.

    It will be interesting to watch Brazil Vs Rep. of Ireland U21 semi final Toulon Tournament later (17:20).

    This will give me some indication of the quality of pic to expect in the future.
