Perhaps try using a British aerial instead of an American antenna?

They say you can do xyz but they do not force TV makers to adhere to any standards so it is pot luck whether things will work such as Freeview play, catch up, etc. After a few years. ITV hub is a pain in the rear on older sets (I.e.non existent ) forcing you to buy another box such as Amazon Fire to get it. I would not believe anything freeview say.


That's because you are confusing freeview, with freeview play, and youview etc. They are different products.

thanks I'm nor into sport but i've just told my friend who is
Been using them to watch NHL for most of the season. Frustratingly, they’ve gone and put the Stanley Cup Finals all on Premier Sports.

that's a shame. its on channel 95. have you tried to re-tune tv to see if that picks it up? Sorry if you have, just trying to help
It's on channel 422 on my sky box. Has had some decent live games on recently.
Not great quality pictures...may be because I'm spoilt with HD, and camera angle and shots can be 'unusual', but I'm all for any sports that are free!

Good news for fans and hopefully in time other sports will be shown.
As its free it gets my thumbs up.

Virgin Media are currently deciding if and when to carry the channel. FreeSports have noticed a petition started by a Virgin Media customer and it would be appreciated if you could sign this as every little helps.

Lol. Ok understood.
Do they have an online stream as the channel says signal may be weak
So basically dodgy minority sports that not even BT and Sky minor channels can be bothered to show ?

I cant even sit through Stoke v Bournemouth on Sky without climbing the wall with boredom, so goodness knows who will watch this
Garbage channel. Listings are never right/updated.
I watched some ATP tennis on the freesat channel last year.

FreeSports is on TVPlayer, an online TV streaming service. So you could stream it on the TVPlayer website or via their app.
