Champions League Final free on BT Sport Showcase (Freeview Ch59) Saturday 3rd June - Put it in your diary.

26
Found 27th Apr
I know it's early, but for those who are going to a wedding that day, it's time to formulate your sick note.

On Saturday 3rd June 2017 the UEFA Champions League Final ( finalists yet to be decided) will be shown free on Freeview BT Sport Showcase @ 19:45 for those that can get the channel.

There have been many posts about BT Showcase in the past indicating some people are unfortunate not to have the channel available. I hope you are one of the lucky ones. All I have is a bog standard freeview capable TV and I can get it on channel 59.

And to those who have commented in the past, yes, I know technically it's not free as you have to own a TV and pay for electricity and a few cans of lager and pay for your partner to go to the pictures etc. etc..

normally answer would be no

you need Freview to get BT Showcase

one way to get it is via the NowTV Smart box, normally about £35 on offer with (say) 4 months of free Sky Cinema included - it has about 100 Freeview channels which are pumped down your terrestrial aeriel (not down the internet) so the picture is perfect and doesn't ever lag

With regards to Sky users. I'm a little confused still as this subject crops up on every BT Showcase post...
If you have a TV capable of watching freeview channels, forget the Skybox, use the TV to watch the channel. Surely that would that work?

Only if you have a Freeview compatible aerial connected in/to to the room you want to watch the football in.

e.g. I have an aerial socket in the dining room which is good enough for Freeview, but not in the lounge or bedroom, which is where I watch Sky.

Same here. Don't have an aerial, only sky dish. I do remember watching a free champions league game on BT sport 2 on sky this season so just wondering if this one will be free too

Last year...

BT Sport will show the UEFA Champions League final free-to-air, having also done so for the UEFA Europa League final.

Absolutely anyone can watch the showpiece game on Freeview channel 59, on BT.com, on BTSport.com or via the BT Sport YouTube channel (youtube.com/btsportofficial).

The Madrid derby takes centre stage on Saturday, May 28th, as Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid compete for the most prestigious prize in club football.

As above, I only have Sky, so ended up using YouTube last year where this should also be broadcast live by BT

so chromecast & smart tv should work

I'm not sure but last year they showed the final on Youtube so they may do that again, also check their facebook or twitter page because they may use Facebook live or periscope to show the final
Edited by: "iroble" 27th Apr

Should be on ITV in full HD for everyone like the good old days

Thanks for the heads up!

Club football still going on in June? That's just wrong!

Atletico Juve 0-0 defensive masterclass to rival that of the 2003 final is probably why.

thanks have some heat.... the significant other won't be too happy about this but hey ho

Both UEFA champions league final and Europa league final were free on bt sport on sky last season so don't rule it out

I thought they were contractually obliged to give one each of the semi final legs as well as the final free to air.

Are either champions league semi final 1st legs being shown free on ch59 bt showcase???

May be bad news, looks like BT have removed the Showcase channel to view for free. This happened immediately after the finalists where decided. Perhaps they thought it was a final worthy enough to try and get subscriptions instead of making it a free to view. I had thought this would be the last season we would get these given the money BT is forking out for footy. On a slightly positive note, BT Showcase is now in HD on Freeview channel 115 should it be screened or for anything else.

At this point in time, they still state Ajax v Man U. is free on BT Showcase 19:45 kickoff Wednesday 24th May 2017 as Aaron_QPR has already mentioned.

Will keep you posted on anything I find out unless you guys know any different.
