Sport on Freeview (Nov 3rd – Nov 11th)

Hello all, welcome to this week’s guide to Sport on Freeview.  Last month was the most popular month EVER for the blog – thank you all for your support – tell your friends and family, keep spreading the word, and I hope you find the site useful.

Many thanks to those who asked me if BT Sport will be screening highlights of the Australia Cricket test match this week on BT Showcase – looks like a no.  I have contacted BT Sport, no reply.  Looks like we will see Big Bash highlights and a few live games from December, plus highlights of the Ashes series later next year.

The article from BT is here – http://sport.bt.com/cricket/bt-sport-wins-rights-to-show-2017-18-ashes-series-when-england-defend-urn-in-australia-S11363999728418

The article says “BT Sport has also acquired a free-to-air rights package that includes daily highlights of international matches and the Big Bash League, as well as one Big Bash League ‘match of the round’ broadcast live and free each week.”  I thought we’d see highlights appear this week – but sadly not.
