Can't see any reason why the launch of BT Sport should affect that.

Apologies, I missed the point. I'd ask TopUp TV; phoning could turn out to be expensive but you could email them at enquiries@topuptv.com.

I have emailed them pretending to be dumb 🙂 seeing if they lie. I can't see them offering Sky Sports on their own but at £34.99 / month! Suppose with a Sky day pass at £9.95 TopUp TV is cheap 🙂

I got a reply from TopUp TV. They said....

 

"Dear Mr F,

Negotiations with BT are on-going and we are confident that a positive outcome will be reached in the very near future. Full details have yet to be finalized.

Kind Regards,

Doreen."

 

How are TopUp TV going to distribute Sky Sports with 41 & 42 being used for BT Sport?

Well, that's the question michael21 raised; I also asked TUTV and just received an identical reply. With BT's assurance that BT Sport will occupy channels 41 & 42, my guess is that TUTV will have to stop providing Sky Sports. At a whopping £35 a month I'd be surprised if they have anything like the number of customers required to maintain independent channels. Watch out for another BT Sport outlet for non-BT BB customers?

Do BT actually own (as in rent) channels 41 & 42 from freeview or are they a sub contract to somebody else? and.....

 

Are there any other freeview channels currently not in use?

 

All the best
