      Sky News Active Screens?

      Does anyone know the reason(s) why Sky has reduced the number of screens on their Sky News Active service from 8 down to 4? I emailed Sky and this was their response "I can assure you that this is purely a new look and no way connected with the launch of our Sky News HD channel."

      Despite emailing them again asking for the reason they don't seem to want to respond anymore.

      Thanks.

      I would imagine it's because of the descriptive text on the left of the screen that summarizes the content of each of the 4 interactive mini screens. Sorry, can't think of any other reason.
      Panasonic TX-P50G10B, Onkyo HTS 3305, Sky+HD Thomson 4E3007 (with upgraded PSU & WD5000AVDS HDD),

      Neither it appears can Sky!!!


      Further response from Sky:-

      "Thank you for contacting Sky Help Centre.

      As my colleague has advised the change to Sky New Active was merely a change to the look.

      I hope this helps with your enquiry."



      So there it is, a reduction of 8 screens down to 4 is "merely a change to the look".
