    At last, we finally have a dedicated sport channel on Freesat.

    However, they need to get some more sports on board as the choices are very limited atm. Surfing Competition might be a good one as the World Surf League already broadcast both free over the internet and on a network in the US. The fact it can be viewed free makes me think the rights would probably be cheap:

    eg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZy_FV7xCPo

    Then the Extreme Channel have the rights to surf films:

    Bit of surf film style footage (not from Extreme):

    Some of the other minor channels have some competitive sailing such as the Americas Cup. Again I can’t imagine the rights being very high to these:

    eg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0STchCu708

    Something from the Extreme Sports channel now that it’s left Sky might be available. Whereas the whole channel might be expensive, I’m sure something like Formula Off Road would bring variety:

    eg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1ubHrljbEE

    Ch4 had the rights to Red Bull Air Racing for a while, so might be affordable:

    Apologies for the dreadful music someone put over this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BycHBgQKnQ0

    Maybe admin can draw their attention to this post.
