Eurosport 3, 4 and 5 now on BT

These have been added to 420-422 and 440-442  -  although I had to do a channel scan for them to appear.

I also had to do a rescan for them to show up. Usually channels just seem to appear but not in this case.

Re: Eurosport 3, 4 and 5 now on BT

when I had a look just just now  the three extra  channels were  showing a placeholder  saying coverage from Feb 9 , a simulcast of Eurosport 1 Olympic coverage  of  Canada v  Norway mixed doubles  curling and  a (Globespan) testcard.

 

BBC coverage on red button and BBC sport app at the same time was focusing on China’v Switzerland mixed doubles curling.

Re: Eurosport 3, 4 and 5 now on BT

They have been active overnight but BT have messed up.

 

The channel which in the guide which says Eurosport 3 and has the listing for Eurosport 3 - is actually Eurosport 4.

The channel which in the guide which says Eurosport 4 and has the listing for Eurosport 4 - is actually Eurosport 5.

The channel which in the guide which says Eurosport 5 and has the listing for Eurosport 5 - is a completely different Olympic feed.

 

Same on both SD and HD versions.

 

@NeilO@PaddyB@DanielS - perhaps you can prod in the right direction for a fix?

Re: Eurosport 3, 4 and 5 now on BT

Currently I have expected live transmissions on Eurosport 3  [ski jumping practice) , Eurosport 4 (Finland v Switzerland mix curling) , Eurosport 5 (Korea v China mix curling)

 

wheres BBC Sport app and red button  have USA v Canada  (mix curling).

 

ithe Extra streams may have different commentary teams to the regular Eurosport 1 & 2 broadcasts and may not have the advertising and promotional trailer breaks.

Re: Eurosport 3, 4 and 5 now on BT

Last night the channels own on-screen logos did not match the EPG name so there was an error.

 

So Eurosport 3 was only available by selecting Eurosport 4 on the guide - the Guide had the Eurosport 4 name but the screen had the Eurosport 3 logo in top left.

 

But today it is as it should be.

There is actually a Eurosport 6 too which is carrying the same match as BBC Red Button - but this '6' channel is not on BT or VirginMedia. Only available with a Eurosport Player subscription.
