I have just gone through the order process to change my bolt ons. Changing my Sky Sports Options from SD to HD the following appears:
Get all the best action from the Barclays Premier League and the Sky Bet Football League, live International Cricket, European Rugby Champions Cup and NFL with Sky Sports 1 and 2 SD and HD.
From 18th July this will be changing to Sky Sports Main Event, which shows the biggest sporting events from across Sky Sports. You will be able to watch Sky Sports 1 & 2 until this date.
So there appears no change in price. So its £22/£27 for one and a bit channels to get the Premier League.
Although I am far from happy with BT and thier shoddy level of support and service, and the diabolical update to the youview boxes.
BT cannot control Sky and it's pricing or wholesale prices.
Neither BT or Sky probably give two hoots about any of the customers, they just hope that the keep taking services to keep the revenue streams flowing.
If you don't like, no one is forcing you to take a service from either of these companies.
