BT Sport Champions League Coverage

Hello all,

Time for a feature on BT Sport’s Champions League coverage – we know that on Freeview we can see 12 UCL games each season, but what about the other 339?  They’re exclusive on BT Sport – and BT Sport were kind enough to let me have access to a matchday to assess the coverage for myself.

First of all, take a look at my video journal from my trial – it’s taken during Matchday 6 on Tuesday December 8th 2015 (we’d put the Christmas decorations up that afternoon!).  Let me know what you think of the video – I’ll write more below.

So, the game available on Freeview during Matchday 6 was PSV v CSKA Moscow – a crucial game for Manchester United fans, it featured the two other teams in their group.  Manchester United’s game was for BT TV customers only – a tricky away game at Wolfsburg.  But, wait there were eight LIVE games to choose from!  Eight?!  I imagine most will have been watching Manchester United try and avoid entering the Europa League, but there was also Sevilla’s 1-0 win against Juventus, Man City’s 4-2 win against Monchengladbach, Benfica’s 2-1 defeat against Athletico Madrid, Galatasary drawing 1-1 against Astana, Real Madrid beating Malmo 8-0 and Paris beating Shakhtar 2-0… and the PSV game which was on Freeview as well.  How do you pick which game to watch?!

BT’s trump card is the ‘Goals’ show available on BT Sport ESPN – which gives you the best of the action from all eight games – BBC does a similar kind of show with its FA Cup Final Score shows, when it can show the goals as they happen.

There are vast interactive options available – when watching on the BT Sport website you can go back to a moment earlier in the game… the stats are instantly available…  and picture quality was superb.  I was watching on my laptop, and the picure was really sharp.  I have an Amazon Fire tablet, but sadly the BT Sport App isn’t available on the Amazon Fire store yet – hope this will change soon.

So, still not too late to get involved with BT’s UCL and Europa League coverage – for BT’s latest deals and offers please take a look at http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/products/broadband-packages I was impressed, have to admit.

Motors TV January Highlights

Many thanks to Motors TV for sending this information to me – don’t forget Motors TV is FREE on Channel 71.

Motors TV Monthly Highlights: January 2016
FIA World Rally Championship
Have you ever driven on ice? If so, you’ll know that it isn’t a particularly relaxing experience. However, the daredevils contesting the FIA World Rally Championship don’t appear to be overly bothered about the whole affair, especially since they head off to Monte-Carlo this month for the first round of the highly anticipated 2016 season. The jewel in the series’ crown is also the toughest to crack, as drivers are faced with treacherous mountain passes and the worst that winter can throw at them. Tune in to our daily highlights programmes and witness the iconic Col de Turini come alive with the sound of horsepower!
  • Daily highlights Rd 1, Rallye Monte-Carlo – Friday 22 January, Saturday 23 January and Sunday 24 January at 22:35 
Dubai 24 Hours
If your winter warmer comes with a high octane rating then we have just the thing for you: live coverage of the 24H Series’ first round from sunny Dubai. The Dubai Autodrome will see yet another epic instalment of day-night tussling between a magnificent array of tin-top racers, including GTs, touring cars and 24H special classes. If you want a day’s worth of stunning action from one of the largest grids in elite motorsport then look no further!
  • Qualifying – Thursday 14 January at 12:00
  • Night practice – Thursday 14 January at 14:00
  • Race – Friday 15 January at 09:30 (until Saturday 10:45)
Andros Trophy
Have you ever wondered what ex-grand prix winners such as Alain Prost and Olivier Panis get up to in their down time? The gym or snazzy parties spring to mind, but we think you’ll be far more interested in the highly competitive Andros Trophy – France’s elite ice racing championship. As the competitive field consists of nothing but four-wheel-drive hatchbacks with serious attitude, we suspect the phrase ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ was created for the machines contesting this championship. Add to that the glorious alpine locales and you have a pretty spectacular series on your hands. Don’t believe us? Watch our coverage of rounds four to six and see for yourself!
  • Rd 4, Isola 2000 – Sunday 10 January at 12:10
  • Rd 5, Lans en Vercors – Sunday 24 January at 12:10
  • Rd 6, Clermont/Super Besse – Sunday 31 January at 15:15
Maserati Trofeo
Thanks to this year’s top-drawer Maserati Trofeo season, Italy has never sounded or looked so good. With an excellent grid of snarling V8 GT Trofeo racers and a roster of highly skilled pilots to thrash them, this one-make championship provides all the automotive goodness a bona fide petrolhead could ever ask for. As such, you won’t be surprised to learn that we’ve put together a review show so we can share all the best bits from this season and whet your appetite for the coming year!
  • Season review – Sunday 10 January at 18:55
Enduropale du Touquet
Some people think that beaches are for barbeques and soaking up the sun. However, if you are French, experiencing winter and from the town of Le Touquet you might prefer to use them as hardcore racetracks, which is the name of the game for the Enduropale du Touquet. This motocross extravaganza with a twist sees riders slip and slide over the town’s enormous sandy dunes, which are specifically crafted to provide a truly spectacular motorcycling challenge. If you thought that your average motocross race was hard, tune in to our live coverage and think again!
  • Sunday 31 January at 11:45 
Quaduro du Touquet
For those of you who prefer your beach-based hooliganism with four wheels, the ever-thoughtful residents of Le Touquet haven’t left you out of the fun. Indeed, the Quaduro du Touquet provides much the same sort of insane racing only with even more speed and power. Sound too good to miss? You’d be right!
