Is anyone else having trouble with Eurosport International on the old analogue Astra 19E satellite. I have not been able to get a signal for several days. Is this the final end of free eurosport in UK.

Thanks for that. I have just bought a digital receiver on Ebay (Silvercrest sl65) in the belief that it will get the signals you mention. I am living in hope that it will just replace my 22 year old Amstrad SRX100 receiver and work like a dream !!! Some Hopes!

Eurosport International Analogue on the Astra 19E seems to be back again from first thing this morning, after several days away. Maybe it was just a local atmospheric thing here in Sunny West London

The info at the top of this page with regard to Astra 19E seems correct. Having recently upgraded to digital from analogue, I now get German Eurosport free on Digital at frequency 12226H. You can as per discussions above still get the analogue signal with English Audio, but according to Astra websites this will stop next April.

With a bit of research much great English commentated sport can be seen on the free "German" Eurosport channel. This year I saw every F1 race live, if necessary using German Eurosport or RTL (Sound Off) and Radio 5 live for the English Commentary. Similarly the US Tennis Open using the very comprehensive English commentary stream from the US open website. Plus several world title boxing matches again using Radio 5 live.
I wish I could crack FIS skiing though. Last Year sometimes Asia-Plate TV had English commentary on the web to go with the Eurosport German pictures- anyone know any other English commentary feeds for the skiing as it all starts soon ?

Daniel, to get the free German Eurosport I was talking about you need a dish aligned to Astra 1 at location 19.6E.

Daniel, to answer your other point, Freesat uses Astra sats located at 28.2E so its not the system I was talking about. Unless you have a dual LNB you may be out of luck.
