Absolutely. I think everyone needs to take a breath and vent their disappointment trowards Sky. As has been said it is Sky fixing the price (for their own sly motives). I get enough viewing from my BT TV subscription, and as a football fan BT Sports is excellent value for money for me. I won't ever go back to Sky, I left over 4 years ago, as I refuse to pay their over inflated prices.
The Main Event channel is indeed pointless to a Sky customer. As you rightly say they will have full coverage of the things we will get partial coverage of as Sky's customers will have already chosen the full suite of channels anyway.
In my view the channel was only created for distribution to BT so as not to fall foul of the regulators. It obviously means they can fulfil their obligation of providing full live coverage of the EPL to BT which is probably the main caveat between Sky and regulators.
Lets hope BT get more sports content, I believe the Football league rights are up soon. Not sure when Premier league rights are due again?

i have both BTTV full package and SKY Q full package. I can honestly say both gave plus and minus points, for what I watch Sky doesn't have much specific that BT don't and SKY Q also has bugs (not as annoying as the next gen ones but that are a year further down the development line than BT).
