    I noted with dismay the ESPN and Star Sports (Channels 65 66) have been removed from the monthly magazine guide and there is no mention of them in the Sports section either.


    That's it, confirmed as finished midnight Saturday. No F1, MotoGP, Wimbledon, etc.

    All is okay............

    July 1st Star Sports 21.00-00.30 MotoGP
    July 2nd Star Sports 11.00-13.30 F1
    July 9th Star Sports 00.01-02.30 F1

    The times may have moved a bit because of the Wimbledon tennis

    Scared me also. For some reason the new book does not include a page for Star Sports but it still lists it as an available station. Went to the website and tried a number of searches and can't find it.

    John, where are you getting your info? The dates you list would all be the day AFTER the actual event.

    If you scan Star Sports for July there they all are

    You can download the monthly schedule on to your pc, but it wont let you download next month's, I just tried.

    If you like on July 1st, I can email you July's schedule, I presume Star Sports will be on the schedule, as I have no problem displaying next months Star Sports on my pc.

    Thanks John. I was trying the same as you. I haven't used it before and couldn't understand why I wasn't getting July. Apparently a month in advance is to much too ask.

    Still question the dates: The MotoGP should be on Saturday, this week but the 1st is Sunday. The F1 dates your showing are Mondays?

    problem solved

    F1 race on ESPN on Sunday,July 1st, not sure if you can read below, just copied it from UBC web site.

    its good to download the months schedule as then its dead easy to scan for motogp or F1 and up will come times for the whole month

    well, glad we sorted that one out, now I can sleep easy.....

    You're right, good job! ESPN Ch.65. BUT!!!!!! They must not be showing the MotoGP live as it is definitely being run on Saturday June 30.

    June 30th Moto GP Live on ESPN from 15:57 to 20:00.
    F1 Qualifying Live on Star Sports from 18:57 to 20:00.
    UBC was Bad enough now True seem to be making an Effort to Ruin it even More!!! First the Best Music Channel VH1 removed and Now they removed Sparks the Best Cartoon Channel to Annoy our Kids. Plus the Constant Changes in Numbering Just to make it Harder to find the Fewer Good Channels they have, Strange Strategy???
    Pity we don't have an Alternative!!!
    Cheers Ian.

    Thanks Ian. Yeah, I hate it too when they change my cartoon channels. Don't get me started on how bad True/UBC is. Agree, a decent alternative would be nice.
