Nice one. Thanks as I didn't know about this.

cheers, a few UFC's will be Sky+ instead of downloading them

Clare Balding?!?!?!? I knew there was a reason I hadn't signed up for it, she's on TV more than James Corden and I didn't think that was possible.

what channel on Virgin?

will check it out, specially the arsenal match!

I know I shouldn't grumble about free football, but those are some lame fixtures!

Heat anyway...

As a Palace fan, you obviously want to watch your team, but I don't care for either.

If there is any team worth watching in the EPL this season it is clearly Arsenal.

Palace playing Liverpool

what date is the arsenal match?

Cold from me, not interested in football but would have watched the Indy Car but typical it's only free to watch weekdays and not weekend so it's not much of a free taster for anyone other than football fans

Thanks

How can people vote a free deal cold?

If you don't like it then don't watch it, voting cold because BT didn't personally ring you up to check you were okay with their free offering seems exceedingly self-centered.

Except the fact that there's a few ppl in these comments alone mentioning other stuff aside from football or indy car.

So Sky customers only get 26th and 27th October reading that.

Pity few things I would watch for free if available before then - ah well

You've obviously got a computer go find out yourself.

Why don't you find out for me? Then everyone who comes on here can see it and not all have to google it.

Why don't you do someone a favour for a change?

Always a slap in the face when paying customers get no sort of rebate on these deals!

Sat 26th October, 12:45 KO.

I don't know why people say "use a computer to find out for yourself".
