BT Sport Showcase on Astra Satellite

Go to solution
Hello

My friend has an Astra satellite in his garden with a Techmate receiver. We get all the Freeview channels via this way but after rescanning, BT Sport Showcase does not appear.

The other BT channels appear but these are locked?

Can anyone provide help about getting BT Sport Showcase via an Astra satellite?

Many thanks

As far as I know BT Sport Showcase is only available on DTT (Freeview).

Hello

 

Thank you for your reply. If that is so, why is the Technomate receiver picking up BT Sport 1 & 2, albeit these cannot be viewed, just like on Freeview...

 

Many thanks

The normal BT Sport channels are transmitted via both satellite for Sky box users and broadband for BT TV users. You need a subscription to view them. They are not available to view on Freesat/Free-to-air (satellite) or Freeview (TV aerial).

BT Sport Showcase is a subscription free extra channel only currently transmitted on Freeview (TV aerial).

Your satellite box is picking up the BT Sport channels aimed at Sky box users, but has no means to decrypt them.

BT Sport Showcase is on Freeview channel 59. Not all locations can receive it though. It's not transmitted on relay transmitters.

If you have a normal TV aerial plugged into a Freeview digital TV or Freeview/Youview box then try a scan for channels and see if it finds it.
