      Sadly, the browser plugin doesn't work for Firefox 3.0.6, I might check back when it's properly launched instead of this beta version of the site. Looks like fun, though!

      Sky games has been around for over a year. We use it at work in between calls. Sure, they changed the format about a month or 2 ago, but the site has been there for some time now.

      I was not even aware of it until I got the information that I have posted above, this morning.

      Why can they provide free online services like this but charge money for the sky active games?

      Give it time as they will probably start to charge for these as well.

      they should add into that

      "This service will be particularly aimed at Sky Connect Customer because they cant actually play real games after 5pm because the internet is evil and no one should be allowed access to it!!"
