Some were on Sky Sports 1 ,2 & 5 I seem to recall!
Just a bit frustrating I have waited 4 years to get Sky Sports back from BT and not flaming Sky changing the goal posts !
Next weeks Total TV Guide magazine says that BT is is to get Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports premier Leauge.
It also shows Sky Sports Golf as being n Vision +. I thought BT was closing or had now closed the old Version + service.
Indeed BT have promised news on the 17th. However, when asked today by the guys at listings site Digiguide, neither Sky nor BT could answer their query as to which channels BT were getting. Sky passed them on to BT, who referred them back to Sky.
If it is just the two channels I'll stick to NOW TV for my Sky Sports fix. Yeah, picture quality not great, but not too deadful through Apple TV. I'm on a £20 a month deal for all 10 channels, which I can access through 4 devices. So that gets me Sky Sports multi room. Which I can't get through BT.
I'd like to see how much F1 gets shown on the Main Events channel. If there was sufficient coverage I might be tempted to bin off NOW TV and switch to buying through BT. I only really watch the footy and F1.
As as an aside, the new pricing options from Sky aren't too spectacular.... assuming most would like at least a couple of channels it's about a fiver a month cheaper than currently. Not going to tempt me back.
Its not really 2 channels though. It is ONE channel with the other a part time channel which will only be used to show an EPL football match if there is a bigger event on the 1 channel we will be offered. Looking at the schedule listings on Digiguide there is going to be an awful lot of Sky Sports News content in the 1st week or two on this new Main Event channel. At the current pricing of £27 for Sky Sports 1 & 2 in HD this new package (in my opinion) needs to come in at a much lower price point.
