Wonder if it'll be in HD?

i hope so, but seeing as it is free it wouldn't suprise me if it's not
"A new sports channel "FreeSports" has just gained licences from OFCOM to launch on Freeview HD, Satellite & Cable services."

Looks like it might be HD
Thanks op

From the introductoin video football it seems as International games (maybe friendlies?); Portuguese Liga and Russian perhaps
Looking forward to it if they have at least a couple of NRL games each week, if they take a selection of other sports from Premier then it will be interesting if an ad supported channel can work with the cost of sports rights. I pay £20 for Eurosport player so happy anyway with enough sports apart from no Rugby League.
All credit to these guys for launching this channel, just hope there's an HD version!
Channel 95 on Freeview is in the SD range. HD channels start at 101
If I can watch some NHL for free, that's a win in my book. If they bring in the British league, even better.
It's not really a deal is it.
So, essentially, it'll be a taster channel for Premier Sports to try and entice people into subscribing with them, from what I can see? No complaints from me anyway; as NHL.TV blackout any hockey Premier Sports show live, at least that'll be 3 extra a games available to watch without needing to have PS.
heat button smashed.
I hope they will show the Indycar..
Hopefully as well NHL.TV will still give the free game of the week in this upcoming season as well, & hoping it will be different from this to get 4 NHL games a week I will be over the Moon

Footbal - l am assuming it will be european matches or lower leagues, I doubt we will see Premier League Matches here right guys?

I've been hunting around online trying to find a site that has full replays of the motogp races, but nothing as yet. Has anyone any suggestions? The kodi streams just aren't consistent enough.
Doesn't look like there'll be any other international Sports on this channel. It would be nice if they included Gaelic sports as well, Gaelic football, hurling for example. Hurling is a bit like hockey but better, faster.

I'll be tuning in all the same. Heat added.

Thanks for posting.

Looks like polish or Swedish league won't be any gp or British
Cant complain at some free sports.
It seems you have to have a freeview hd tv/box to be able to tune it in.

It works on my freeview hd smart tv but my none freeview hd tv in the bedroom won't find it.

It comes to freesat on 12th September.
