for BT showcase?
nope just freeview

Must have banked millions in advertising

Cheers op

Nice one! Thought I was going to have to watch the final in the pub. Some prefer that I know, and I can understand that as I was married once with young kids and pets, and any excuse! But these days a few tinnies on my own or with a mate in the house, not only cheaper, but more enjoyable for me, can watch and listen to the match better and not have to wait 15 minutes to be served while being shoved about.

Used to love going with mates to the pub to watch footie, I stay at home now all the time since becoming a full time dad. I've never drank or smoked and it made me realise how much more relaxing it is been home nice and cozy!

Last time I tried to watch bt showcase the quality was like a dodgy internet stream. It was worse than the normal SD channels. Is it better online?

Will their YouTube feed be HD?

I phoned them and they said it will be free on sky

They are also streaming live on YouTube!

This should be getting massive +1000 degree heat. Great reminder for those without BT Sport channels.

Brilliant! Cheers

What channel number on Sky?

The channel HD?

I wonder if this has anything to do with UEFA admitting the other week that they had a massive mistake issuing the rights of the champions league/Europa league to Bt Sports in the first place as there is not the user base on BT Sports and the viewing figures are massively down this season compared to years gone by, even hinted that BY Soorts will not get the rights in 2 years time when they are next up for renewal!!

hopefully
bt barely advertise what matches are on showcase so no surprise their viewing figures are so low.
plus itv would always have made sure they put the english clubs on as they got further in the tournament whereas it seems bt actively made sure the english clubs werent on the free station

​suck it up. Scottish teams also had to play second fiddle to English teams on stv due to its deciding to put English teams on terrestrial channel meaning only those with sky sports could watch the Scottish teams.

That's because Scottish football SUCKS.

Hopefully the Youtube channel will be better quality than the Showcase channel - you can barely make out the players faces it's that bad.

Has anyone ever actually watched BT Showcase. It's a blurry mess, much like most Freeview channels. Would probably be better quality on YouTube.

I don't know, I could see Alloa Athletic put a few past Aston Villa

Are these marches available on Freesat, or only on Freeview?

loop
