im with you. also thought that this was the case? it would make sense aswell seeing as the op gets it

Sky are only doing it to stop customers joining BT Vision to get sky sports a lot cheaper than Sky provide it themselves

Ofcom should do them for sticking prices up and taking channels off freeview and on to pay channels just to hit BT

According to the sky website it says sky sports news is included with the sports channels and the news & events pack. We just have the variety pack and knowledge pack.

Its gone from Virgin Media M package (basically freeview) but I have not had it on sky for ages.

Wonder if it will leave catchuptv. Can't really blame sky it is their ball after all

Worst channel ever how many more threads are there going to be on this topic, I'm glad it's gone. Two blokes at work watch it non stop, at last I'll get to watch Film 4.

Sky have a 6 month amnesty for existing Sky Subscribers.

The inlaws don't have any sports channels but the SD and HD versions are available till Feb 2011 before charges are applied.

You'll continue to receive it if your a Sports or News & Events packs after that time, which I imagine most sky subscribers are.

And if you have to have Sky Sports to watch it, then why would anybody bother watching Sky Sports News if they can just flick over and watch it live?

You don't need sports, you need the News and Events which is part of the £23 value??! package which gives you all sky (SD) channels with the exception of skys movies and sports offerings.

What a stupid comment, sky sports news doesn't just report on live events, it actually reports sports news

i USED to like ford soccer saturday when they would wind each other up...esp how terrible arsenal or liverpool were doing
phil thompson reckons everyone loves liverpool

you can still watch skysproutsnudes illegally online but that would just be stealing, so dont do it
and nearly any match you want so dont do that either
