      Ryder Cup

      I don't have, nor do I want, the Sky Sports channels, but I would like to watch the Ryder Cup which starts on Friday at noon on SS1. Are Sky doing any deals that will let me watch SS1 for the duration of the Ryder Cup? Maybe it's on Box Office events like the Boxing, does anyone know?

      Re: Ryder Cup

      Why not just add Sky Sports to your subs for a month? You won't miss it then

      Re: Ryder Cup

      Yes, thats the answer, unfortunately they dont seem to want to offer a pay per view for this type of event, so just ring them up and add it to your subs for the month ( currently 19 I think ). Just remember to cancel before your month is up.

      Re: Ryder Cup

      Ring up? If I start now I might get through by Friday.

      Seriously though, thanks for the helpful replies. I've just re-subscribed to Sky after they phoned me a number of times, so I'm not too sure of how they do things like monthly subscribing etc., I thought it was only possible to subscribe for a year or so, not just for a month. I am gettting a free Sky+ box installed tomorrow + they gave me 50 free credit in my account so that will help pay for the Ryder Cup coverage.

      Re: Ryder Cup

      When you sign up to sky you only have to take out the basic package and it is that that you are tied into for a year. Anything extra you subscribe to such as movies / sport etc is on a monthly basis.

      Re: Ryder Cup

      You can get the Ryder Cup for 25 for a weekend Sky Sports pass for this weekend only. Dearer than a months sub, but you don;t have to worry about unsubscribing.
