TalkSport to launch on Freesat

By James Welsh

TalkSport is to launch on Freesat's electronic programme guide.

The talk radio station will appear on Freesat channel 731 on Tuesday, May 19.

"TalkSport is a respected name in sports broadcasting and its launch onto Freesat is a big plus for our radio portfolio," said Emma Scott, Freesat's managing director. "With the FA Cup and UEFA Champions League finals on ITV HD this month, and Wimbledon coverage on BBC HD next month, the addition of TalkSport builds on Freesatís first class and free sports coverage."

TalkSport already broadcasts nationally on AM and DAB Digital Radio, Freeview and Virgin Media's cable service, and is carried on Sky's EPG.
