    Sky Sports launches new channel dedicated to European football

    This is a discussion on Sky Sports launches new channel dedicated to European football within the Sky news and announcements forums, part of the SkyUser Announcements category; I "activated" Sky Sports 5 yesterday; it shows up with a tick as part of My Package. The website clearly ...

      Re: Sky Sports launches new channel dedicated to European football

      I "activated" Sky Sports 5 yesterday; it shows up with a tick as part of My Package.

      The website clearly stated that the monthly price does not change, i.e. broadband remains at 20/month. (Yet another deal for new customers only, presumably.)

      An extra channel is just a dilution of content - I watch programmes, not channels, and the loss of Champions League football is a giant one for which no bundle of minor European league football etc. can compensate. YMMV, of course.

      But never mind, I do "benefit" from an extended contract period. Thanks, Sky.

      Sky say if you just activated sky sports 5 without free broadband (just add on your sports tv pack) u won't be tied into 12 months contract.

      Re: Sky Sports launches new channel dedicated to European football

      I added sky sports 5 to my broadband unlimited and sky sports package via offers in my sky on thursday, but was not offered the free broadband deal at that time
      Just rang sky, got straight through and free broadband for 24 months is added now along with my previous offer of discounted sky sports for 24 months that i renegotiated last year.
      It is an 18 month contract now, but nothing else changes, so still keep sky freetime etc.
      Sky customer service is always great.

      Amazing, as that's two years running my bill has gone down, even with the small September increase and expect we will get another small one this september.

      You MUST use one of the official links to automatically access the 'free BB for 24 month' offer. As it says in the official Sky announcement:

      To take up the offer customers should go online to Sky Broadband - 2 years free Broadband Unlimited when you activate Sky Sports 5 or call Sky from 12 June onwards.

      Yes, i went through the official sky sports 5 offer that appeared in my sky on thursday and activated the sky sports 5 bit, but no free broadband was offered at that time.
      When i rang they said it was because my current contract still had a few months to run.
      But no worries, got the offer anyway.
      In fact thinking about it, its only 16 months contract as I had a few months still to run.

      Sky give BT access to Sky Sports 1 & 2. Sky loses Champions League deal. Sky may be forced to give BT access to Sky Sports 3 & 4. Sky move all European football to a new channel.

      Don't you just love the games!

      I don't like BT Sports at all, it all just chat show all the times. Boring. I wish all sports stay with Sky Sports 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 would be great! Sky are the best in sports tv.

      Re: Sky Sports launches new channel dedicated to European football

      Ofcom have also smelt a rat as they are to conduct an investigation into the true cost of Sports subsidy to BT FTTC. Round figures are: BT have about 2 million FTTC homes but next year will spend some 550 million on football rights (not to mention all the other costs involved). So each current subscriber to BT FTTC is subsidised by some 275/year or about 23/month. BT argue this isn't true and that they aren't keeping Sky et al wholesale FTTC costs artificially high to subsidise the BT costs. Ofcom have said that BT may well have a case to answer so everything might change if Ofcom find in favour of TT and Sky. A real mess!

      Not quite Beckham though is it and Bale seems quite miserable in that ad.
      Sky ad is so much better.
