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

I don't understand what 401-Main Event is supposed to be, is it just going to show something that is on live on another channel?.

As I say many have been paying £13.75 for all Sky Sports on half price discount why would they pay £18 for just one channel.

The new package of ten channels and an unrivalled schedule of live sport is available for the same price (£27.50 per month), which will remain frozen for 12 months. Existing customers will receive the new Sky Sports package automatically and the new channels will replace the existing line-up.

For the first time, Sky Sports will also offer something for fans not looking for the full breadth of sports, but are interested in specific sports. The new line-up is designed to grow this customer base and offers flexibility to subscribe to individual channel packages at a new price. One channel pack will be available for just £18 per month, two for £22 and three for £26.

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

Sky and Virgin are very good with the art of deception and confusement when it comes to their prices.

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

I wonder whether this will trickle down to Now TV, could be even more attractive on there as long as they keep it cheaper than through the main services.

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

No increase on the complete Sky Sports bundle at £27.50 , I wouldn't be shocked if they start price increases on the Entertainment packs thus meaning everyone has to pay it.
