How to hear/see Hibs on TV, radio, Internet


For exiled Hibbies round the world, and more specifically those in London and the South East, it was, until a few years ago, quite difficult to find pictures of the Hibees on the telly or hear the games on the "wireless". Perhaps, like me, you relied on helpful friends and relations in Scotland to send tapes (Off The Ball sent every week!) but since the advent of Satellite TV and the Internet it's much easier to be a long distance supporter. This page will endeavour to bring you the latest info on Hibs on the media.


Every SPL game is covered live via Real Audio. Click the link below to take you to the BBC Web Site for details of the latest games to be covered.

Stuart Crowther updating "ERIN Live" which used to be the only way of keeping up with live games around the world.


For season 2004/05 Setanta have the live contract. Details here. STV and Grampian will be showing a highlights package on Monday evenings.

Now that ITV are broadcasting on SKY Digital anyone in the country can see every ITV region. That means that the ooooh so slow d-e-l-i-v-e-r-y of Jim Delahunt on Scotsport (and Archie MacPherson's "legendary" commentary) can be enjoyed anywhere in the UK.

If you have a Scottish postcode Scottish, Grampian or Border Scottish ITV can be found on channel 103 on the Programme Guide. If you get your local (English) ITV region on 103 there's a little bit of work to be done:

  • Press 'Services'
  • Now hit '4' for the 'System setup' option.....
  • Again, hit '4' for the 'Add channels' option.....
  • Now in the frequency field, enter the value "10832" (the decimal point will locate itself automatically)
  • Scroll down and set the following fields to "H", "22" and "5/6" respectively......
  • Now scroll down and highlight 'Find Channels' and press 'Select' on the remote......
  • You will now get the following list:
  • Carlton/LWT
  • Carlton Central
  • Carlton Westcountry
  • HTV West
  • HTV Wales
  • Highlight the one you want and hit the yellow button to store it in your Digibox so it can be called up easilly any time you want......
  • If you want a region other than the five listed above, replace the frequencies and settings above with the following information:....
  • 10891 H 22 5/6 will get you access to:
  • Anglia

There's not a lot on the site yet, mainly contact details.


BBC Radio Scotland (unfortunately though it's only the FM service) has finally come to SKY Digital on Channel 866 on the EPG. Off the Ball, Sportsound and all the other sports programmes you have missed can be heard. It can also be found on the Internet here.

With a good radio, (and good positioning - Dave McBain recommends on top of the Hogs Back!) and usually only from about 6pm onwards, you may pick up Radio Scotland on medium wave 810khz but it shares its frequency with a Spanish station which, confusingly, also has football commentaries. This sometimes leads to the Spanish equivalent of David Begg merging with Radio Scotland!
