This isn't right is it? Virgin media haven't brought in a bullsht "only on one box" rule?
Phone Virgin up Vince as l suspect there is a fault somewhere.

The question to some is are they going to package it in with their main sports channels now as that will not go down well IMO as l know several who watch it who don't have the Sky Sports channels.

If the idea is to encourage punters to subscribe to sky sports this may not be the best choice of free game.

On the other hand if the game does turn out to be 'a cracker' then it will be seen as a good move by Sky. Admit it's unlikely though!

I don't agree, two sides trying to avoid the drop. A crucial game for both sides. Especially as Palace lost and Hull drew today.

Could be a really good match.

Just as likely to be a defensive no risks taken game as both teams try to avoid defeat.

My point was intended to suggest a game involving one of the top sides would have been a better choice both on a footballing point of view and as a teaser to get more subscribers to sports packages.

If Swansea get a point at home to Everton on Saturday and Palace don't away to Man City then both sides will likely need a win, a draw is not going help either, a point or a less will put them both in the mix on the final day and Hull have Spurs at home and Palace are away to Man U.

As I say likely to be a really good match with a lot at stake.

Plus lets face it, the picking first match in a treble of Sunday PL games which are followed by 4 days of fixtures makes sense to me from the point of view of Sky trying to sell subs.

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

This is nothing more than a rumor I've seen on boxing forums backed up by a recent survey put out by Boxnation / BT Sport.

BT are allegedly interested in adding Premier Sports to their sports pack, similar to what recently happened with Boxnation.

BT Sports, Boxnation and Premier Sports all under 1 subscription. Depending on what your sporting preferences are, it's a great alternative to SKY Sports.
