      Sky go want to charge me ?!?

      Hi,
      Tried to watch an episode of the new season of House last night and it said it was 1.50 to watch it ?!
      My subscription comes with the skygo why should i pay again ?
      I dont have the movies pack so I wouldnt mind the ability to pay as I go for the anytime/skygo movie content . But this seems like I am being asked to pay again for something that I feel comes under the Entertainment Package.

      It appears you can watch anything you subscribe to free, provided it is live. Some of the on demand offerings are rent only. The blurb for House says -
      The award-winning medical drama returns for an eighth outing with House incarcerated following his actions at the end of the last season, leaving the diagnostics team to find a new leader. House is only available to rent. Sky1 subscibers can watch House live on Sky Go.
      Rather strangely, they have spelled subscribers wrong. Don't they spell check?

      Ah yes didn't read the blurb !
      Hmmm looks like I still have to get used to the differences between Vision And Sky when it comes to On Demand Content.
      It would seem neither is King. Vision has no live channels and Sky's on demand falls very short of the mark. That said, it is a free service to subscibers (as they put it).
      Ah well
      Thanks for the help

      Anytime+ on TV is generally free, although there are some Box Office programs included. I think Anytime+ is more comparable to Vision than SkyGo, which is basically a mobile service.
