How long this can continue as the internet continues to become more powerful is another matter. Sky Movies for example is looking incredibly outdated.



It's why I finally quit after years and years.

Knowing so much money goes to footy and they lost the main prem matches in rugby mean i was paying heavily for something I don't like.

Also paying for a ton of channels to mostly watch walking dead and game of thrones and mostly free tv.

If now tv allows me to pay for the odd sport I watch and show I watch them I will use that. Seems to be their aim.

I'd say Sky's coverage of sport is worse than Sky's in everything but Football. (At least in terms of the actual show, not volume and quantity)

I don't get this, Dual. What do you mean? How else would you get this stuff? A shitty stream somewhere?

DUAL, WHAT ARE YOU GOING ON ABOUT


Yeah, I found that a bit odd, too. I'm quite happy to pay for Sky Arts 1 & 2 HD, Sky Atlantic HD, etc as they offer the kind of programmes I won't find on the BBC or other terrestrial channels - Game of Thrones, tons of great behind-the-scenes film and music documentaries, concerts and some great comedy (just watched Mid Morning Matters with Alan Partridge and Bug, for instance) etc. Looks like they have a great schedule of future programming in the pipeline, too. I watch more Sky than terrestrial TV since I became a Sky subscriber. I actually find the BBC a bit dull in comparison, tbh. :shifty:

Really? You can get a month's Sky sub for the cost of one ticket to see a Premier League game. Don't tell them, but I'd pay way more for Premier League coverage if they upped the prices. I get ESPN too.

Will be interesting to see what happens when BT Sport kicks off, Sky can't continue to charge the same amount, surely?

Since fibre-optic became widespread, I don't see the point of Sky Sports. The only problem with streaming matches used to be it cutting out due to shitty ADSL lines. Now I can watch it very easily on my PC. TV is more convenient than finding a stream/changing streams mid-match etc. but the cost (£30-40?) is exorbitant.

I dunno, these days £40 is the sort of money I don't even think about spending any more. I paid £1.69 for a 500ml bottle of Coke the other day. Now that is exorbitant!

So, so sick of the idea that everyone must like the Olympics, everyone wanted Team GB to do so well and apparently it was so great for the country.

Back to reality please.

The olympics were brilliant and I genuinely believe they have lifted the spirits of the British public. I actually think that in a few months analysts will point to the Olympic "feel good factor" as the reason we're out of recession.

Too busy pissing and whining about it in the Olympics thread to fully enjoy it.

2 weeks ago a lot (maybe even the majority) of people thought that. Then London put on a fantastic Olympic Games, the BBC produced immense coverage and Team GB were amazing.

It converted me to liking the Olympics and I normally hate it.

I don't understand why they would get abuse for that? its the next big event and they are just moving awareness... were we supposed to have a week of mourning for the end of the Olympics or something.

Because they were dismissive of them I think. Any, British football sucks, overpaid wankers.

Didn't you know you're not allowed to mention premier league footballers in the media from now on without referencing their shameful "off-pitch" lifestyles and poor/arrogant/not humble like the olympians attitude? Or at least not unil the season kicks off and all the shit-munching hypocrites forget anyway.
