The cost of Sky Sports will be going up by over £3. But Sky Movies will stay the same.

Quote:
Sky sports collections going up by £3.25 or £3.75 (can't remember which!) from 1st Oct. Movies collection price staying the same. Sorry if this is old news but I just heard it.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2013) Vol. 3.

Already on Volume 3? Blimey, only feels like yesterday Volume 2 launched. Great work MB, looking forward to seeing how long it takes before we get our first whinge about MB. Only news I'm wanting is whether we get BT sports or not. Not fussed about anything else personally.
