One channel pack will be available for just £18 per month, two for £22 and three for £26.

401 Sky Sports Main Event
402 Sky Sports Premier League
403 Sky Sports Football
404 Sky Sports Cricket
405 Sky Sports Golf
406 Sky Sports F1
407 Sky Sports Action
408 Sky Sports Arena
409 Sky Sports News
121 Sky Sports Mix

So, just to get football is still £22 a month (unless you choose to only have either PL, or EFL).

Re: Sky relaunch Sports Channels

l can also see them adding a few pounds on to peoples package who have not got the sport as well so my personal opinion is that people will end up paying more whether they want the sport or not.

At the moment we are getting a half price sports deal but there will be plenty of bartering to do when our contract ends that is for sure.

Re: Sky relaunch Sports Channels

For many the competition has lead to cheaper prices , I've never paid full price for either Sky Sports or BT Sport and I don't have BT Broadband.

How is that MM? and there are many without the sports who are paying far more then they were 5 years ago and there are many with sports sub premiums who are doing the same as well.

Re: Sky relaunch Sports Channels

That's laziness shop around these tv/broadband bundles are no different now than your other utilities like gas and electric. If you don't shop around and query things these companies will happily continue to increase your costs.

l agree but there is a lot of customer inertia out there who seem happy to pay whatever their bill comes to.

Very true. I've had access to Sky Sports at half price for nearly 4 years. I passed on a BT Sports 1/2 price offer to Telegramsam the other week.

The price of Sky Sports, BT Sport and Boxnation just 6 months ago without deals was around £62 per month. If you shop around and take advantage of deals you can get all 3 for around £25 per month. It's a massive difference. All 3 cheaper than the standard price of Sky Sports.

Sadly some cannot be taught how to budget in a responsible manner including a couple in our wider family.
