Viewers to get a say on free to view sports


by David Allen

There are certain sporting events that the government believes should be available for all TV viewers free of charge, no matter how they choose to watch TV.

However, the satellite providers like Sky Sports and Setanta Sports, have shown that their money can take top sporting events like the FA Cup, Cricket and Rugby away from free to view TV viewers.

The only way that fans of these sports can watch these live events is to subscribe to Sky Sports or Setanta Sports, but this could all change as the government reviews what national sporting events should available to all viewers.

In order to help the government decide on what channels should be on the list, which was originally drawn up in 1957 they are asking the viewing public to tell them which sporting events should be kept free to view.
