    In the past these paid for channels are available for all VM packages, without subscription.
    Will freeview be getting it again? Like last year they just made PickTV sky sports 1 for the day.
    Never mind! Just read tjhat it was all seven channels not just Sky Sports 1

    I see people talking about these wonders but have never found any, just low bitrate stuff. Care to tell me more, nudge nudge wink wink, know what I mean?
    Excellent, it will be used for the Leeds game!
    Mobdro!
    So how does this work? will it be automatic? have to re-tune? have to get in contact with Sky? or do something online to apply?

    Will it be on Now TV boxes too free!



    I don't think so, as it seems to be just for people who have subscription based TV, but don't have Sky Sports already.

    Nothing is a good deal from sky like all the companys that supply us hard working folk greedy and greedy again

    THIS

    ...you'll also love to know the price of Sky Sports is going to be jacked up in September for all us 'loyal customers' by around £2/£2.50 a month too; which will no doubt help them cover (and profit) from the addition of a channel nobody was asking for (Sky Sports 5), but we 'really, really wanted' (_;)
