I have a Freeview a DVB-T2 compatible device but still can’t access FreeSports?
FreeSports is delivered in the UK via transmitters that cover approximately 75% of the country. This means that some areas which are often less populated will not be able to receive the channel despite you having a DVB-T2 compatible device. If you receive BBC Four HD on channel 106, or 4Seven HD on channel 110 you should be able to view FreeSports on channel 64. You can check if you should be getting the coverage here by entering your address: https://www.freeview.co.uk/channels-at-your-address or call the Freeview advice line on 03456 505050. The Freeview coverage checker gives a good indication of whether you’ll be able to receive FreeSports. Most Freeview boxes will have been retuned automatically to receive FreeSports during a scheduled auto update but you can carry out a retune and see if the channel appears. When you buy a Freeview HD TV or other equipment, we recommend that you make sure that you can get a refund from your retailer if these local factors or lack of transmitter signal for channels you want to view prevents you from receiving Freeview and or FreeSports.
What equipment do I need?
Check if your TV is labelled ‘Freeview HD’. If not then you can purchase a set to box. Models are available to view here: https://www.freeview.co.uk/get-freeview#freeview-box-with-tv.
