      This is what i find disgusting about Sky, you pay upwards for 70 per month for the full package plus broadband and they cant even give you one channel for free. And its always new customers that get new and better stuff earlier or cheaper. Its absolute bs.

      It's not free with Virgin, it is in the package, you still pay for it.

      Also, you were a new customer once and had the deal that was on then. They cannot run at a loss for all customers, it is common practice to offer incentives to suck people in.

      It might be part of the package but it's another channel and it's not costing us any more than we were already paying unlike the 12 or whatever it is everyone else will pay.

      Maybe, but didn't you originally have the Setanta packaged in with that sub price?

      ESPN is the replacement to this. Sky have just added this channel as if used to the Prem+ one.

      Yeah it replaces Setanta but Setanta was also an extra channel at no extra cost to our package when it came on air.

      Re: ESPN Channel Free

      When Satanta stopped transmitting, did Virgin reduce your subs?

      I bet they didn't so in effect you were paying the same price for less, so in effect, you have been paying over the odds for your subscriptions for the last couple of months (that must have bugged you), they have had to add ESPN for free as it is a direct replacement.

      Sky could do the same thing, charge more for the Sports package and include ESPN, they don't because it will reduce peoples options.

      Sky Should reduce the cost of sports and movies.

      Anyone know what the price diferance is for these both channels on virgin & sky?

      Also the sky HD subscription is a rip off.

      ajay - you weren't forced to join Sky or subscribe to Sky HD. You can simply stop subscribing.
