Only really would want SS 3 and 4 HD but not a big concern. Not bothered about Atlantic at all. So think my Coming Soon thread moaning days are over lol

It's impossible to work out exactly how much this will cost, per head, to people on the XL package.
For what's its worth, its around £3.50 per month per XL subscriber, but your right, we don't know how many people on M/L will subscribe. Not many on L I suspect, cheaper to upgrade to XL.

A great deal for both companies. My 'best case' scenario was for the content to be included in XL, with the HD channels costing extra, but we even got them!

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2013) Vol. 4.

I have a feeling BT will just get paid £75mill regardless of subscribers, I reckon that's the deal they have done, which is a good for virgin!

Same here, not bothered about Atlantic but sky sports 3 in HD is sorely needed as sky always put man utd champions league matches on 3, just to wind up the most people.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2013) Vol. 4.

This is a great deal and something that would never have happened under the old guard before the takeover. This deal is strong enough to stop people subscribing to Sky sports and just go with XL which will hurt Sky in the long run.

Looks as if Sky are getting the backlash on their forums now.

Ambiguous I know but watch this space.
Hopefully that would mean premium HD channels will come with the SD versions, cos its not really worth an extra £7.

Totally agree with you there Howard, there was plenty of gloating from some Sky boys on here on 1st of August, albeit mostly banter, what goes around comes around, as they say...

Yes, it is, I was convinced that we wouldn't get BT Sport, so i negotiated a reduction on my payments and was offered an upgrade to 60 meg broadband.

I kept XL pack though and got BT SPORT!

Most of it is light hearted banter which in my mind is non offensive to the vast majority.

I don't think this is light hearted at all. This could be the next civil war, Virgin and Sky subscribers rampaging through the streets banging each other on the head with their respective remote controls. Are our remotes bigger?

Anyway, Come ahead ya dish loving numpties. Cable Forum mad squad ya bandits!
