Just seen on the news that BSkyB is filing a complaint against BT for offering BT Sport 1 and 2 free to BT Broadband customers! BSkyB claims it is 'unfair' and is 'not good competition'.

Looks like Murdoch's cage has been well and truly rattled! BSkyB would never give its subscribers such a good deal!

It's about time BSkyB had a kick in the balls because it's been too dominant for far too long.

That's interesting. I thought BTVision were just going to air their own games free of charge. Problem with BT Vision is it isn't HD.

paint your wagons and burn your banker, coz the twisted circus is coming to town and there ain't no safety net under the high wire.

Got an email today. Me thinks it'll be option one that's pissing off Sky. Also my favoured option, as I don't particularly want to upgrade to Infinity as my basic Broadband is fast enough.

If they had the F1 in HD I'd seriously think of swapping broadband supplier to BT, I got virtually no interest in football though.

I am a Sky subscriber and I am appalled that Sky is throwing its weight around just because it's been given a taste of its own medicine. This might make Sky start treating its subscribers better and start giving them fair deals.

Why would I get BT Vision when I already have Sky and Sky Broadband? :rolleyes:

If Sky wants to keep loyal customers then it needs to start treating them better. I can't get Virgin Media where I live so I have no alternative.

As a paying subscriber I have the right to slate Sky - and I'm not the only person who does it :rolleyes:

It does not make me or anyone else a hypocrite. You need to look up the word because you're banding it around but don't have a clue what it means .

BT vision is pretty shit when compared to Sky. Saying that they don't charge anywhere near as much. Sky prices are getting out of hand. Think we pay 65 quid for TV minus a 9 quid discount (for 10 months) for threatening to cancel sports and movies. If it was up to me I'd cancel the lot, but she who must be obeyed etc etc :)

Broadband from Sky is reasonable, £7.50/month for an unlimited ADSL connection or £20/month for an unlimited 40Mb fibre connection.

Sky recently gave me Sky Movies free for 6 months and half price for the remaining 6 (about £8 a month). Now the football season is over I'm cancelling Sky Sports until September!

Don't forget you have to give 31 days notice to downgrade now Scott. So plan ahead.

This could be the game changer for them though if people aren't bothered with HD for live broadcast. Theoretically you could get super-fast Infinity, Sky Sports 1&2 and BTSport 1&2 for a lot less than BSkyB and Sky broadband. Basically the only thing that's stopping me is Sky Atlantic, HD and I'm already getting 14.5 MB to the house with BT on their normal broadband.

True, but Sky do have a shit load more channels. It just depends what you watch whether Sky is worth the extra I guess. To me it isn't really, to the wife it probably is because she watches loads of stuff, especially on Sky Atlantic, Sky One, Fox, SyFi and Sky movie channels. I really only watch the cricket and some documentaries on the pay channels. Most of the time I find I watch the free channels.
