The analogue Eurosport service, available on Astra 1 at 19 degrees east, that also has English commentary, will stop transmitting and close on the 30th April 2012. The service will only be available in digital format.
However, one downside is that there is no English commentary on the digital German Eurosport service.
This will also affect all German analogue channels that are also currently transmitting on AStra 1 at 19 east.
Most of these analogue channels are already available on the digital signals on Astra 1 at 19 east.
And many of these channels are already available in HD for free.
Analogue German Europsort used to be available on frequency 11259 V
Digital German Eurosport is available on frequency 12226 H 27500 3/4 and is free to air – requires no subscription or viewing card
This change doe snot affect British Eurosport, or British Eurosport 2 that is available on the Sky TV Service.
