Weasle words from Sky. I would bet we get 99-100% of interactive red button type stuff. Sky just want potential customers to think only ALL of it will be on Sky.
I can't imagine even VM going into negotiations and Sky saying yeah you can have interactive but only on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday and VM going, cool sounds like a deal...

Re: sky sports red button

I pay for sky sports and the cricket world cup is coming very soon in 2011 amd i notice with match clashes ect coverage will be on sky sports Red Button seeing as we/i pay £22.50 a month for the sky sports,i hope we would be able to see these matches seems we are paying a lot on vm for sky sports only to have large parts of it withheld.

Come on 2011 is here lets have the sky sports Red Button function as promised on the sale of the VMTV channels.

Will there even be any more Champions League games on red button this season????

Not that many games left and they seem to be more spread out now. I'm sure they'll just be on the regular channels although perhaps not in HD if you sub to it.
