    I see the highlights are on quest.The problem is it clashes with some of the stuff Mrs.Wisdom downloads.
    So I thought quest on demand would be the answer.
    Can't find it anywhere on the sky box.Does anyone know where to find it.
    I don't subscribe to eurosport so that's not an option.

    There is the UKTV play app which may be what they are referring to, but it gets such awful reviews I haven't tried installing it.
    You can watch Eurosport without contract on PCs, tablets etc for £6.99 a month. I have signed up for a month just to watch the Giro. With the addition of a Chromecast device (£30), you can then "cast" it to your TV from your tablet. Works a treat.
    (Edit) Thanks for that link sight-pin, I didn't know they had the highlights on line. Still nice to see the full thing live though if you have the time. :smile:

    I've got a Chromecast dongle that I bought when I had the Eurosport sub, but that was one channel it wouldn't work with. There was some known issue, have they now sorted it?

    Quest is on Freeview channel 37. Quest +1 is also on Freeview.

    I'm only 3 days into my latest eurosport player subscription after having a break from it. The first 2 days it was rock solid. Today it crashed a couple of times, fortunately not at key moments, but otherwise worked well. I used to have a Eurosport app on the TV but they stopped supporting those, which was when I bought the Chromecast. You should be able to get a free 7 day trial if you want to see if it works for you.

    Thanks, I'll have a look at the free trial offer.

    On Black Friday they had a time limited deal where you could get a years subscription to Eurosport for either 99p or £1.99 and like a total dork I let it go.

    You need to have words pal. Sky allow you to record 2 things at once..one recording slot each.

    Yes I know about that but she's got stuff set up to record.
    Anyhow I like to watch it in peace.
    Thanks all for the input.

    She can remove one recording, you can then record the cycling. Relationships are give and take...supposed to be anyway

    You don't need Chromecast on all TVs - we've got an LG Smart TV and can cast straight to it from any Android device.

    Also on FreeSat channels 167 and 168 respectively.
     
  13. It does seem an odd home for it, compared to some of their regular content

    They have the snooker on too, China Open......

    So, I think that they have some sort of deal with Eurosport.
     
  15. Ahh, explained
    Thanks
