That means that you won't be able to watch many of your favourite cycling races, as well as the odd bit of ski jumping, biathlon, and under-16 football.

If that's something you cannot do without, then there are a number of ways that you can watch Eurosport without a Sky TV subscription:

1. Virgin Media

The most like-for-like option if you're coming from Sky, is to watch Eurosport through Virgin Media. This will give you the vast majority of other channels that you would also get with Sky, with Eurosport available as part of the Mix bundle from £39, and also as part of the Full House bundle from £55.

2. BT TV

Eurosport is available as a bolt-on for £6 per month for BT TV customers. The only snag is that it is only available as part of a package with your broadband, but if you're looking for new broadband at the same time then this could be an option.

3. Eurosport Player

Possibly the easiest option to watch Eurosport without a Sky TV subscription is the use Eurosport Player. This lets you watch Eurosport channels and videos (including extra online channels) on your computer, tablet, or smartphone for £59.99 per year (although this is currently discounted to just £19.99 for the year).

4. TV Player

TV Player is the latest option, and allows you to watch Eurosport through your smart TV, tablet, or smartphone. There are plenty of free channels to choose from, but to get Eurosport then you'll need to invest in TV Player Plus, which is free for a month-long trial, but £5.99 after that.
