Petition Action

All televised sports played in the name of UK Counties should be available on Free to View TV

Additional Information

Ensure that all major televised sporting events in the name of UK countries are available on free to view TV.

If a sport is played the name of a UK country and it is to be televised then it should be available to the citizens of that country free of charge. There are sufficient free to view channels for there to be adequate completion and also not everyone can afford to pay subscriptions. This would enable the vast majority of citizens to watch sport played at the highest level and encourage players of those sports to aspire to that level. It would also help to restore pride in a wide range of national sports and in the sporting figures that have become lesser known national heroes because only a relatively small number of people get to see them..
