Complain to OFCOM and then the Judicary for wanting another holiday.

It isn't BT's fault.

 

Sky have thrown their dummy out of the pram and refuse to put SS on the youview platform.

 

They think they are being smart, but in actual fact, all they are doing is forcing BT to actually buy up all the rights.

 

BT don't need SS anymore as they have bought the entire champions league and will probably buy the majority of the PL at the end of the year.

 

If you must watch sky games then you only option is to move to sky but the thought of that nauseates me so I will make do.

Of course there are other ways to watch Sky's picks, and more, if you look around the net. And I'm not referring to illegal grotty streams either, these are legal quality streamsl, although they may stray into a greyish area regarding rights in the UK. You do need unlimited broadband and a smart DNS service to make use of them though.

if you actually look at the tv packages here - sky sports 1 & 2 is now shown on the BT Youview bundles - but when you look in other areas it says it only available on the vision boxes

PP I think he means if you click on 

It doesn't specifically say BT Vision Box.

 

It will however as part of the sign up process.

Not that I am aware of. Perhaps when the CAT decision is given - which is now expected in September - and BT get Sky Sports 1,2 & 5 on Youview then both BT and Sky will sit down and reach an agreement for the remaining Sky channels.
We can only hope.
