Nobody knows the facts as BT have said very little about why they can't provide the channel anymore, fox have said nothing. So what facts? Rumour and speculation do not count as fact.
Granted. But I can't see any "anti Sky agenda" in both posts. Anyway why should you worry, you don't subscribe to BTTV.
Well one day left, and still no email. I find this totally unacceptable, I will phone on the 1st to cancel, and state that the main reason will not necessarily be the loss of a channel, but actually their failure to inform me, and therefore my complete loss of trust in them as a supplier. I find the lack of information completely unacceptable, it appears that they are trying to keep cancellations to a minimum by simply not informing their customers, and hoping they don't notice. Seems like a complete con to me.
I'm not worried, but I do feel sorry for all the BTTV customers not on this forum who haven't had the email and are going to have a nasty shock after tomorrow.
As for you not seeing any anti sky agenda, take a look at some of that posters comments in the original fox thread, there is a common theme of blaming sky for BT losing Fox, when none of us know the truth.
Blimey I have better things to do with my time than worrying what others have posted on other threads. I do have a life. Is true we don't know the true reason why Fox is withdrawing their channel, but as it only affects BTTV then the old adage may well ring true "if it walks like a duck etc......." (just my opinion ). As I said why are you worried whether there is an "anti Sky agenda" at all?
Still no e-mail received here, and it seems unlikely I will get one now. Personally it doesn't bother me as I only tuned in for TWD, and I can watch that elsewhere.
If someone has an anti sky agenda, that's for them, its not for this thread though. This thread is about BT informing their TV customers about the loss of one of their better channels.
Nobody in this thread mentioned anything that could be considered anti Sky, so why bring it up in the first place.
I really can't remember whether or not I've received an email about the loss of Fox. I had heard it was happening though.
Not that it matters to me ... I don't recall ever watching it.
PS - just checked my BT email account - no email there. Checked my main email history and I did receive an email, on 11th Feb.
Changes to your BT TV pack
From 1 March 2016, you’ll no longer be able to watch FOX and FOX HD on BT TV. That’s because Fox have changed the way they offer their TV channels to TV providers.
We’re sorry about this but we’ll keep bringing you great TV – including loads of top channels like Comedy Central, GOLD and Universal – as well as a number of ways to watch the latest and greatest US dramas:
• You can watch some of the biggest US shows – including Fear the Walking Dead (back for a new season in April) on AMC. This channel is exclusive and available at no extra cost to BT customers.
• With BT you can watch Netflix* directly through your set-top box. Get the shows everyone is talking about, like the brand new season of Better Call Saul (available from 16 February) and the new season of House of Cards (4 March).
• You can buy the latest US box sets from BT Store - like The Knick Season 2 (coming in March) and Game of Thrones from HBO. Plus each episode from the latest season of The Walking Dead will be available 24 hours after it has been shown on air in the UK.
