Freesports FAQ’s

Need some help finding Freesports.......? Here is some guidance to help you........

Q: I have Freeview but can’t view FreeSports

A: You will need a DVB-T2 compatible device (i.e. Freeview HD via TV or set top box, Freeview Play, YouView or EE TV box).

Q: I have a Freeview a DVB-T2 compatible device but still can’t access FreeSports?

A: FreeSports is delivered in the UK via transmitters that cover approximately 75% of the country. This means that some areas which are often less populated will not be able to receive the channel despite you having a DVB-T2 compatible device.

If you receive BBC Four HD on channel 106, or 4Seven HD on channel 110 you should be able to view FreeSports on channel 95.

You can check if you should be getting the coverage here by entering your address: https://www.freeview.co.uk/channels-at-your-address or call the Freeview advice line on 03456 505050. The Freeview coverage checker gives a good indication of whether you’ll be able to receive FreeSports. Most Freeview boxes will have been retuned automatically to receive FreeSports during a scheduled auto update but you can carry out a retune and see if the channel appears.

When you buy a Freeview HD TV or other equipment, we recommend that you make sure that you can get a refund from your retailer if these local factors or lack of transmitter signal for channels you want to view prevents you from receiving Freeview and or FreeSports.

Q: What equipment do I need?
A: Check if your TV is labelled ‘Freeview HD’. If not then you can purchase a set to box. Models are available to view here: https://www.freeview.co.uk/get-freeview#freeview-box-with-tv. High street electrical stores and Amazon also stock a wide selection of boxes offering different features at varying cost. Basic boxes can cost as little as £30.

Q:Are you available on SD boxes?

A: we are only available on HD freeview boxes not SD, so depending on where you are based you may not be able to receive our signal
