Simple answer mate probably not one you want to hear but don't pay it , if enough refuse to pay it they'll be forced to do something.

Changing subject I've noticed Sky Sports Mix seems to be showing quite a bit of golf , wonder what Sky's sudden interest in promoting golf is ?

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

BT Sport in talks to secure the rights for The Masters from SKY

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/golf/2017...e-masters-sky/

"Sky has been the UK’s host channel for the Masters since 2011, in a shared agreement which allows the BBC to show the final two rounds live. The contract is believed to already be up and talks between Sky and Augusta are apparently in an impasse because of finances. BT sees this as the ideal avenue to enter golf, but there are nervous faces not only at Sky but also the European Tour."

Given the name of the web site, ii's strange that they don't mention the Sky Sports/BT Sport package available on VM.

FreeSports? This seems to have come out of nowhere. I wonder if it will arrive on Virgin Media?

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

And to think some said the fact that Sky paying more for it's Sports rights and more people cancelling or asking for discounts wasn't impacting them.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Never heard of Devialet either, specs look good but that full price is horrific

Looks like even the mighty Sky can make a PR blunder, announce Dolby Atmos is coming and then release a soundbar that doesn't support it... Oh dear

To be fair how much would they have charged for an Atmos sound system ? The current one at £249 is more affordable to Sky's user base , maybe if they sell well they'll look at partnering again on an Atmos sound system in the future.
