3 x BT Sport 3?

For this afternoons Leicester vs. Wasps game there appears to be three different versions aired.

 

432 BT Sport 3 HD - Blue Logo in Dolby Digital

 

465 BT Sports Extra 1 HD - BT Sports Extra 1 logo standard Stereo. On guide.

 

470 BT Sports Extra 6 HD - BT Sport 3 HD Clear Logo standard Stereo. Not on guide.

 

What's the difference (except for the logos and sound format)?

Re: 3 x BT Sport 3?

Well I believe it's probably because

 

470 is used to simulcast the program on BT Sport 3 in full screen - BT sport 3 often broadcast with the programming supplemented by an L bar of. Sports information so as a compromise BT have been proving the full screen option on Sport Xtra 6 (470).

 

Sport Xtra 1 .. Is available to BT Sport Lite subscribers. So as on Saturday afternoons the rugby moves off BT Sport 1 to accommodate the Football programming onto a channel in this case BT Sport 3 which is only available to full BT Sport pack subscribers. So the simulcast  of the rugby on Sport Xtra 1 enables those with BT Sport Lite to watch.

 

By the way the rugby was also broadcast on 433 the BT Sport 4K channel.

Not quite - 432 was full screen with no results bars. If people want results on a Saturday now there is s results show on BT Sport 1.

So no explanation for 470.

432 is full screen when showing live sport  (and adverts)  plus I understand when showing a program for the very first time plus normally between midnight and breakfast time - they don't bother to turn the simulcast off on 470 unless there is a need to use it for a genuine extra stream.
