I realise Eurosport 3, 4 and 5 were international feeds but that meant that the BBC had 2 British Feeds and Eurosport had only 2 British feeds which were many time duplicates of the extra channels.
Far too often you found that BBC1/2 and the red button channel were showing the same as ES1 and 2, which far too often were showing the same as what ES 3/4/5 were showing, which means quite often you were getting the same event with 3 different commentaries, rather than getting to see other events that were happening.
Eurosport always feels remote to me, I always feel that they are broadcasting more to an international audience than a British audience.
Not as true as it has been in the past, as Eurosport has split into several different country feeds, and we do get UK specific commentary and on-screen presenters. I imagine there is still a certain amount of pan-Europe coverage though. You used to be able to tell when they actually badged the channel as "British Eurosport", as the DOGs
were different colours on UK specific and international coverage.
I still preferred to watch the BBC myself too though, and that will probably still be the case for Tokyo in 2 years time, probably only switching to ES when they're showing events I want to see that the BBC aren't.
