Box Nation HD Channel 490

Something strange. I can get all sports channels including Sky sports and BT sports and all the relevant HD channels. I can get as well Box Nation  on channel 427 but not the Box Nation HD on channel 490. I do not think it is a signal issue, because when I go on to the tv listings it says on channel 490 No Listings Available and when I click on it I just get a blank screen.

Re: Box Nation HD Channel 490

@Mark39 is correct, from the BT website:

 

The BoxNation HD Live Events channel isn't available to Sky customers. However up to 20 live events will be shown on BT Sport HD every year. All fights available for BoxNation customers will be available to view on the BoxNation SD channel.

Re: Box Nation HD Channel 490

Interestingly the Box Nation website lists only channel 427, which may indicate that they don't broadcast on channel 490.

Thank you for that. However if you are correct, why when I am using Sky and go into sports tv listings channel 490 is listed but says no listings available 

I sssune from your reply that is the same for everyone and it is not a signal issue

Re: Box Nation HD Channel 490

BoxNation 490 only has 1-2 programmes a week but they are only provided to BoxNation subscribers - unless you buy them with PPV.

If you are a BT Sport subscriber you do NOT get this HD channel via Sky - but you do on the BT platform.

Re: Box Nation HD Channel 490

It must have all changed recently, as I am a Boxnation and Sky subscriber for years and have always watched the Boxnation channel live events in HD on Sky.

Boxnation Had 2 channels one in SD and one in HD. The HD channel is now missing. You think I would have received an e-mail or something letting us know they were taking the HD channel down.

Re: Box Nation HD Channel 490

On Sky:

If you had a Boxnation subscription - you got the SD and HD Live events as a part of it. It is now SD only.

If you had a BT Sport subscription - you got the SD channel only.

Non-Boxnation subscribers would have to pay a PPV charge for the HD Live events.

 

On BT:

BT Sport HD subscribers get the SD and still get the HD Live events as a part of the subscription.

Re: Box Nation HD Channel 490

Thank you very much for your clear reply. The only sport I watch is Boxing. I loved watching the live events in HD. Makes me think about moving over to BT lol.

While we have all discovered that Box Nation no longer has an HD channel,

I'd be interested if someone from Sky or Box Nation would like to explain why my subscription is still the same price? I would have expected a reduction by a few quid as I'm no longer able to see fights in HD which is what I originally sunbscribed to. Just another great example of not giving a toss about your customers!

I think it's a Box Nation subscription isn't it? I'd contact them. I doubt they'll explain here.
