      There money grabbers. they just think of themselfs not the end user. They need to listen to use more
      Why pay for Hd sub
      Why wait for epg upgrade
      why charge so much for sports & movies
      why offer 20mb when line dont support it

      They need to shape up.

      I think virgin have the upper hand now. Sky dont have anything over them appart from a few more hd channels.

      I know the VOD testing is going on now juts hope they roll that out soon.

      Yea dms05 no ones forced to do anything pal. well done for pointing that out.

      Just expressing how i feel.

      I am afraid businesses don't work like this, they offer a service at a cost they think is viable and then we as customers choose it we want it, simple really, if we don't then you're not forced into it.

      Because this is again another customer choise, Sky have spent much time and money offering this sevice to people who want it, they need to recoup the monies spent and also make a profit.

      Because it needs to be tested, what would you have them do, roll it out and it fail and then receive nothing because your receiver is bricked!!!

      Because again there is a HUGE cost for Sky to get the rights for this, especially the football, it again comes down to customer choice, if you don't want it or cannot afford it don't get it.

      They offer an UPTO 20mb service, they are not responsible for the line distance or quality. every customer will be different and every ISP is stuck in the same situation.

      And the fact that Sky can supply almost 100% off the population unlike Virgin and it is more than a few more HD channels!!! Remember, without Sky, Virgin would have less content and almost no sports!

      Just trying to express the facts

      Setanta and now ESPN are totally different companies to Sky! Sky arent going to offer you this channel for free when its a completely different company to Sky. You pay 17-whatever a month for your SKY channels! anything out of your sky packages, your required to pay for! Its simple really!

      Styluss, if you look at the top of each post, it will detail the time and date it was created, it's not worth going back over old threads to answer questions that have already been answered.
