Chris’s Sport on Freeview Guide – Issue 7

Sport on Freeview 2015 – Issue 7

Hello – apologies blog wasn’t complete last week, I went away for the weekend, had literally had no time to finish off the blog post before we set off!!!  Normal service has now resumed.  Please let me know what you think of the site, I’d love to hear from you.  And, spread the word – if you’re on Facebook, put a link to it!  It you’re on Twitter – tweet it!  Tell your friends!

Chris’s Pick of the Weekend

My pick of the weekend has to be the UK Darts Open Friday-Sunday on ITV4.  Starts with 8 dart boards all playing matches at the same time at Butlins Minehead!  Fast stuff, and ITV4’s coverage is superb.  I believe that the tournament is open to anyone – with qualifiers starting at Rileys Sports bars each February, I can’t play darts but I’ve got to have a go next year and see how I get on!  Chris

As always, you will find full listings here for Motors TV.  Click on the link below to find full comprehensive listings for Motors TV right up until March 27th – many thanks to Motors TV for the interview and their kind permission to publish these listings.  Pubs and clubs out there with Freeview – why not switch to Motors TV?  There will be plenty of times during the week where there is no sport on TV, and I think it’s a good channel which will grab the attention of the punter.
