With regard to free Eurosport, yes it is still available in English on analogue satellite using a standard decoder - even an old Sky box should work. You can choose between English or German commentary.

I don't know why this information is not included in the list.

I do not wish to watch British Eurosport, so I cannot comment.

ian from notts: The logical channel numbers 201-205 are local services and are only available on Freeview in Manchester, Bolton and surrounding areas.

trevor long: I would say that one issue you might have is caused by the fact that you are in an area where you might pick up signals from different transmitters and that means your receivers could have tuned to the wrong one to which your aerials face.

A quick look on Google Streetview of your area shows most aerials on Midhurst (234degrees horizontal).

What transmitter is your aerial pointing at? If you don't know, then the direction should help work out which it is.

What UHF channel has your TV tuned to? This information is probably given on the signal strength/quality screen. Based on the Digital UK predictor, it will be either 31, 34, 45, 52 or 56. Having found this, we then need to see if this is the same as that used by the transmitter to which your aerial faces.

What BBC and ITV regions do you normally get (on analogue)?

What UHF channel is ITV1 on (same procedure as above)?

This will help finding out what transmitter your receiver is picking up incorrectly (if this is the case).

trevor long: If your aerial is not on Midhurst, is it on Hannington which is 276 degrees?
