Freesports have now converted both Freesat and Sky versions of the channel to HD only. This will mean that some viewers will lose access to the channel.
For both Sky and Freesat, there are still some viewers using legacy standard definition equipment. Viewers will need to arrange for replacement receiver boxes to be installed in order to continue to view Freesports on Sky or Freesat.
Freesports had already converted its Virgin Media service to HD, however as Virgin Media had transitioned its viewers onto newer HD compatible equipement, no viewers lost access.
Freesports remains in standard defintion on Freeview, where there are no plans to change to a HD service.
