Yes you do, I don't have sky sports but I have sky sports news.

Tbh, can't see the problem. Why would Sky give away there channel for free? At least the sky subscribers will feel as if they are getting a bit more for their money now.

But then obviously you aren't that bothered about sports so why want to know the news about it :?
Good, Sky Sports News sucks anyway. What's the point of watching guys who are watching football?

Well that doesn't make much sense as ad revenue will decrease!

I'll just have to use my revo for vidiprinter.

It is oddly compelling, strange as it may seem... anyway we're back in the premier now so I'll watch our games live in the pub on the arabic channels... ;-)
I'm surprised it took so long. I don't even get ssn on my 360 via sky player yet I have all the sports channels and ssn on my normal sky.
What I am surprised is they are replacing it with sky3 +1. It's a waste of a channel.

Yes all those poor people in the north of the county!:-D

I lol'd

+1



10+5 - (4x4)

I hope you are able to work this out.
I have Sky so its not an issue for me, but I always thought having the news channel on freeview was a good bit of marketing. Everytime you watch they always say "watch the live coverage now on Sky Sports 1." Strikes me they may have lost a marketing tool, as opposed to encouraging new customers on to Sky by taking a channel away..
I'd rather see Quiz Call return to our screens than this duplication of an already useless 'placeholder' channel. The Freeview management team should remove their right to broadcast on the service.

agreed,it was obviously there too plug the live sport on the other sports channels and for ad revenue so seems a strange decision,

cant see anyone joining sky just too get sky sports news back:-D
Just found this one now, thanks for spamming ;-)
