Re: General Sky TV Discussion

Those who PM'ed for Beta of new EPG. Great news. Looks like it will be early hours of morning.

Quote:
Dear Forum member,

Good news! The DRX890 or 1TB set top box that you provided the details for has been scheduled to receive the early release of the new enhanced Sky Guide in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

We have created a dedicated forum page specifically for your feedback. It will only be accessible for those using this early release and it will be where we will monitor your comments and any issues raised.

The URL to access this is http://helpforum.sky.com/t5/Enhanced...03;p/sky_guide

'Mad Men' ratings on pay-TV defended by Sky Atlantic

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/media/s1...-atlantic.html

Quote:
A Sky executive has responded to criticism of the low audience figures for Mad Men on Sky Atlantic, accusing people of making "misleading conclusions" about the show's popularity on pay-TV.

Season five of the acclaimed drama, poached by Sky from the BBC for the launch of Sky Atlantic in 2011, was seen by an average of 72,000 viewers across its double episode premiere on the Sky exclusive channel on March 27.

Episode one pulled in 98,000 viewers, while episode two slumped to just 45,000. In contrast, the season four premiere on BBC Two was seen by 360,000 last year.

However, Naomi Gibney, the acting director of Sky Atlantic, accused "one or two people" of making "misleading conclusions" about the show's popularity due to the viewing figures
