    Sky+ Subscription imminent scrapping

    This is a discussion on Sky+ Subscription imminent scrapping within the Sky news and announcements forums, part of the SkyUser Announcements category; I don't think he was "having everyone on," what you have to remember is when information like this is posted ...

      I don't think he was "having everyone on," what you have to remember is when information like this is posted it is based on tip off's from other people, so obviously there will be some degree of inaccuracy in these posts. Take the story about Sky launching it's own video website, now NewsreadeR announced this before anyone else on here knew about it and before it was even announced by Sky so some of the information given will be accurate and others won't be.

      As for the Sky+ subscription being dropped, I don't see this happening any time soon but I may be proved wrong! You never know!

      If the person who gave me the information withdraws the info given to me, I will withdraw the information I posted. To this day I have not had a denial. And I would not post anything on here unless I was sure it was genuine. If I am wrong then I will apologise, until that time, hang on.

      As for having anyone on, I think you may have misjudged me.

      We posted the story ages ago, and we could have posted the URL for the site, instead we decided not to. However there is a management post in our hidden bunker which states all the facts and how we found out about it.

      We decided to tell the moderators on SkyUser, the URL on the 29th March, at 06:35 PM, not knowing it was been launched about an hour later.

      We gave all the info in the forum post, anyone could have found the same info out about the URL just by doing a simple Google search. Infact Simon, found it by Google-ing the thread title.

      Yes, thats the point of the attchment, just to show we were monitoring the Sky Cast website, that was the errors the site was showing before it went live.

      Thanks. This is wandering OT but my visit was to Bristol. I think I saw the loniest Sky rep there in the Galleries Shopping Mall. No one was taking a blind bit ofnotice of him and he in turn did not seem very enthused either.
