Olympic channels

Don't know if you're aware or it's been mentioned on here previously but sky viewers can watch all the BBC olympic coverage on channels 450 to 497.
Makes it a bit easier than navigating through the red button option.

  • Also available free on Freesat channels 150 to 174 in HD.

    What about Virgin Media?

    In answer to my own question, yes I can.

  • Thanks, Carly!
  • I've noticed that the BBC doesn't let viewers know about the 24 Olympic channels on Sky, Virgin Media and Freesat - it persists in telling users of those media to use the red button, which I find long winded and not so easy to navigate between channels.
  • Thanks Carly! That's a real bonus and the BBC make you think it's only on their channels!
  • The main benefit for me on these channels is you can use the rewind feature.
  • On 450-497 are they HD ?
  • Oohahmortimer, I think there's something like 24 HD channels on sky, 450 to 473, 474 to 497 are a repeat of 450 to 473 but non HD hope that makes sense.

    If you go via red button you can choose which sports to watch. Not enough space to put the 24 extra channels on Freeview. Also channels 301 and 302 are being used for Olympics on Freeview.
