      A PAYG Sky Sports isn't a bad idea, but at 9.99 for 24 hours I would be very surprised if there is much uptake.

      Only once in a blue moon will I want to watch sky sports BUT that's only for the odd football game where 24 hour access isn't needed, 3 for the game maybe but 9.99 is very steep and I'd rather just check the scores.

      I would say Cricket fans may benefit but they can last several days so you're better of subscribing anyway.

      I will pass this onto ofcom to see if ofcom is allow this as 9.99 per 24 hours viewing is well out of order exspecially all of us in a difficulties budget and hardship.

      And you all do the same too, form a complaints to ofcom, bbc watchdog. The more we complaints, they will take action against greedy sky. 9.99 per 24 hours is totally unaccepted!

      I agree that is it very expensive, but I have to point out no one is twisting your arm forcing you to pay. Its a take it if you want and can afford to pay choice.

      Have you got NowTV? If you have Sky TV then you have no need for it. The cost of Sports on Sky TV is far less than NowTV and has a much better choice. I think you are forgetting that NowTV is aimed at those who cannot receive Sky Satellite TV, not Sky TV customers.

      I doubt if Ofcom would be interested in your complaint or Watchdog, they are more interested on people who have things thrust upon them, not things which are a matter of choice. Its a bit like a restaurant charging a bomb for a bottle of wine. No one is forcing you to eat or drink there, so it is pointless complaining..

      I rather fancy the new Jaguar XF, but they are greedy and charging too much for it.

      What!
      Jaguar are at it as well?

      Blimey, after checking Lambo's Aventador & Ferrari's 458, i assumed laws were just different regarding imports.

      Right, where's that watchdog phone number...
