      You can thank the fat cats in football for milking the cash cow. There is probably a good case for having a football only channel and let those who really want to watch it pay the going price.

      If sky put each mix up buy 1.00 or over I for one will be cancelling some mixes.They should be reducing the price for the amount of repeates they keep putting on and then moving the same programes to other channels.As for hd while there is a difference its not that great, it depends on ones eyesite and how good there tv is.

      If Sky did do away with the 10 HD sub then I would upgrade by second box (a standard one) in a heart beat because at present I if I wanted a second HD box I would have to pay two 10 HD fees as well as the 10 multiroom sub and that is to much.

      Just seen something about this elsewhere apparently the 10 charge for HD is only going to be dropped if you subscribe to Movies or Sports I think also ESPN otherwise the 10 sub will stay

      If that is true then as stated on another forum, if you are on full HD pack you get ESPN for 'free' as by paying for it you get the HD sub waived.

      i personnally think espn is a rip off you have to pay for each channel unlike setanta where you got a few of them though correct my mistakes if im wrong on this. if this turns out to be the case where i have to pay for espn and the movies and sports i already have so adding espn may be more

      ESPN package is made up of 2/4 channels - ESPNA and ESPN plus each again in HD - so 4 in total. I believe as other forums are stating that Sky make the decisions on what is charged as ESPN probably sell their channel to Sky for a fixed fee.

      On Setanta I Paid 13 and got 2 Setanta channels and NASN plus some boring Horse racing and Arsenal Celtic tv - so basically IMO was paying more for what I believed was less... ESPN have better sports and HD for a lesser price.
