Where can I find Premier Sports and FreeSports?

Premier Sports and sister channel FreeSports offer live and recorded coverage of many sports events not covered on the mainstream sport channels.

Premier Sports operates as a pay TV service, while FreeSports is available free-to-air on most major TV platforms.

Premier Sports
  • Sky (UK): Premier Sports 1: 412; Premier Sports 2: 435
  • Virgin Media (UK): Premier Sports 1: 551; Premier Sports 2: 552
  • Online: PremierPlayer.tv (UK only)


  • Sky (UK): 422
  • Freesat: 252
  • Freeview: 95 (only available in some areas)
  • YouView (BT, TalkTalk, Plusnet TV): 95*
  • EE TV: 95*
  • Virgin Media: 553
  • Online: TVPlayer.com (UK only)

* subject to Freeview coverage, as these service providers take FreeSport's Freeview signal, which currently only reaches around 3/4 of the UK.

Freeview reception depends on both coverage and device used to receive Freeview - a newer Freeview device, that supports Freeview HD or Freeview Play is required.
