Hi. I noticed on the footy listings that the mighty Liverpool are playing Birmingham on Setanta Sports Ireland. I found the frequency for this channel and did a search for it on my Sky Digibox. It came up but when I tried to view it it said 'Programme not available'. Is this because it's a PPV channel? How would I go about getting it? I can get Multivision on 13 East but I would prefer the match in English (or Irish - either's fine).

So having found it, bearing in mind I have a UK Sky Digibox and card would I get the usual 'Press Select to View' followed by my pincode, and having paid my £5 or whatever would I be able to receive it in the UK? (I know it's not poss to get RTE)

Sorry friend you still wont be able to watch Liverpool game on Sentanta UK as it's only on Sentanta Ireland.

Hi Black ninja, Believe you do not want this channel, The quality is very poor. Only watched it for a short while and switched it off. Rather watch it in foreign language because the reception quality is excellent, on my dreambox anyway. Setanta is only available as part of the subscription package on NTL we dont get it on sky as you probally have to pay for it on top of the premium package. Hope this helps you out.
