Freesat viewers will need to wait until the second week in September to gain access to Freesports.
On Twitter a spokesperson said “We’re launching on Freesat on the 12th September. Not the 11th September as we originally thought.”

The channel launched on Thursday morning on Freeview channel 95, 75% of the UK can receive Freesports on Freeview, though a DVB-T2 box or TV is required.

On Sky, technical changes occurred later in the day, followed by its addition on the Sky EPG on channel 424.
