    ITV would not want to dilute it's own sports coverage by launching another FTA channel and they do not have the money or reputation to gain new and high end sporting content.
    Therefore I would imagine if they did launch a dedicated channel on the DTT platfrom it would be partly a nostalgia channel with whatever other low interest sports that can aquire.
    Sports overspill from ITV1 would naturally go to ITV2 who on a good day can easily be a ratings winner on all platforms.

    Setanta is still launching their FTA channel aren't they?

    I would rather ITV gave up sport altogether and, in particular, gave Formula 1 to a channel that could cover it properly.

    Hey, 100th post. Pity it was so dull.

    I think it would totally depend on the content.

    Also you would have a lot of very angry football clubs who got screwed by the last ITV Sports Channel fiasco :lesson:
