Someone did tell me, about why British Eurosport got taken off ITV digital, and isn't on free-view. I think Eurosport suddenly increased the price for services taking it.
Whilst I think freeview is an excellent idea for people who aren't willing or can't afford to subscribe to Sky, at the moment the channels on it are very limited. The main plus in terms of sport is BBC's interactive coverage of Wimbledon.
Really, I don't think Cable tv willl ever catch up with Sky in this country. It doesn't help that the companies running it (especially NTL and Telewest) seem to be very badly run in financial terms.
"Freeview" may help to kill off cable tv too. Whilst cable tv is very strong in other countries, that is usually where Satellite tv has less of a foothold.
