Freesports Channel Coming Soon?

Now that bike channel has finished on virgin media TV does this mean that the new free sports channel will be taking its place later this month as this is also conveniently placed next to the premier sports channel which also run the same free sports channel

Re: Freesports Channel Coming Soon?

you obviously haven't read apcyberax's answer. that is the current state of play.

be aware that even on freeview there are quite a few parts of the country who are not able to get access to freesports. i've had 'discussions' with both freeview and freesports about that already, but that is another story.

only if freesports agree and pay VM to carry the channel. VM do not decide the channels and what package they are in. that is up to the channel owners to decide.

Nothing has been said officially, but it has been reported on another forum that Freesports are currently in negotiations for carriage on Virgin.

Re: Freesports Channel Coming Soon?

Before 30th September I was given the chance to cancel Virgin Media as part of the price increase deal. I spoke to an operator asking whether they were going to get Freesports. I was told they were in negotiations and would get it soon maybe by the end of the month. Rang in October and asked where was Freesports? Operator ignored my question and just tried to sell me Sky Sports channels. When I asked about reverting to just internet & home phone I was told the price quoted for that service had no gone up! I feel I have been conned! l have been with Virgin for many years but they do not seem to care! They are the only provider not interested in Freesports because it is not a pay channel. They are not listening to their clients! If they don't get it soon I will have to look elsewhere
