      Sky Price Rises

      It looks like come September as is the norm the prices are going up, all I know is that The World Package is going up to 47. Give it another year or so and it will be 50.

      I am currently paying 35 for 2 mixes and the sports package so hopefully it will not shoot up to much.

      It is usually around September every year that they announce these increases so I suppose that it is happeneing again for some combinations and mixes shouldn't come as a surprise.

      Sky TV price increases will be good news for FreeSat!
      If Sky had any sense, they would drop the HD fee. As it is, I see Sky losing customers to FreeSat.

      Oh well, every year I threaten to cut down on my package, but this time I will have to do it, because everything else is also going up.
