Yeah I'm using my folks it's great.

Should be a great day today, come on England :thumbsup:

I assume Virgin customers won't get them, is it just for Sky?

It's on Sky3. If you get Sky3 on Virgin you'll get it. If not you won't.

This is the rugby:
SPORT: Guinness Premiership: Leicester v Newcastle
On: Sky3 (11)
Date: Saturday 19th September 2009 (starting in 28 days)
Time: 17:30 to 19:30 (2 hours long)

There's no soccer listed yet.

looks like the rumours are true then sky is getting desperate because so many people have cancelled there packages for a cheaper option, i reduced my last month from £60 to £30 as i was fed up paying for sports then getting told the match i wanna see is on another ppv channel and with all the repeats they show i couldnt justify it anymore...

Hey, thanks for the info

there appears to be some confusion but i dont quite understand how......like it says in the op sky is going to be available on FREEVIEW so that is ANY digital set top box or TV that can receive FREE VIEW channels

Even if you dont have sky, virgin or freeview. You got internet

tvcatchup.com/wat…=36

Sounds like a nice little bonus... Cheers OP :thumbsup:

A little harsh... Maybe a rewording of the header might have been more appropriate?!? :roll:

No it was completely misleading and just flat out wrong.

Why is this expired?

That is not free sat at all, that is freesat from sky which is completely different.

Sky 3 is not on freesat so it is not available for 'ANY' digital TV.

ill edit nothing........until you show me 100% that these channels are not going to be shown on any digital tv like the sky press release states

like i said i really dont know what you are attempting to achieve or the point you are trying to make?

expiring a post with the comments you made makes you look like a tool not me:thumbsup:


i highlighted the any because people kept asking if they needed sky or if they could get it on virgin......helping people

Look at the link I just gave you, sky 3 is not broadcast on freesat, so the programs cannot be shown on a channel that isn't there.
