Is it time for a free sports channel?

There seems to be a growing band of supporters for the creation of a free designated sports channel for fans of football, tennis, Olympics, horse racing, motorsports, snooker etc.

Particularly the sporting events which take up days or weeks of viewing time.

Sports fans can then sit in isolated splendour and watch it to their heart’s content, leaving the rest of us to enjoy the normal entertainment channels. Granted there isn’t a great deal of riveting TV programmes these days, but it won’t be sport.

Which leads me to the question, after being coerced into paying for a TV licence can I request a refund for the days and hours of missed viewing? No? What a swizz. It’s like paying Hovis because you own a toaster.
