@jam2000Personally I would go with the newer Now TV Smart box as it outputs 50Hz which is native to the UK. The Roku boxes have more content but don't run at 50Hz unfortunately. Sorry for the late post, was out all day.
Just noticed that after I posted as I simply replied to jam's post as it was the 1st unread one I had and I felt it only fair not to ignore the guy. A mod will probably censor it anyway so it can stay up until they do. I have a feeling come Monday they are going to be busy censoring posts if the price stays as is for ONE sports channel from Sky.
I think if you go back to page 14 and read my post re upcoming coverage of the cricket you may understand better why some people are having a moan. This 'new' channel is filling gaps with partial coverage of events which Sky customers will see in their entirety.
The 'Extra' channel really should be used for more than just clashing Premier League fixtures. I know BT aren't to blame for this, and I feel sorry for the mods who are going to feel the backlash on here.
In my opinion Sky are doing this to attempt to steal viewers away from BT. If the early mood is anything to go by then Sky are going to be successful with this strategy. BT TV viewers are being treated shoddily by Sky, NOT BT, and personally I prefer to deal with BT for my tv consumption.
Yes @Adam80 I agree with you re pricing, that is definitely BT's fault, leaving the most important news until one day prior to launch is a really bad move. However, I'm blaming Sky for the product they are supplying BT, I don't honestly think BT have a say in that.
What will be important will be the price we are expected to pay, but remember Sky will have a massive say in that too. I'm sure they are watching these forums salivating at the potential subscriber base they could be getting as people 'possibly' jump ship from BT.
Personally I'm stayng put and if Sky Sports on BT TV is overpriced I'll simply make do with what I currently have on BT Sport/TV.
