Sky aren't going to change their minds. They are counting on us cancelling and transferring our tv viewing across to their platform. Sky are doing this in an attempt to beat BT down. BT have been royally shafted by Sky.
As I have said elsewhere BT may not be 100% perfect but I will not be giving Sky any of my money per month.
Glad I never tane Sky Sports in the frist place.
The now im happy with the full BT Sports pack that I still seem to be getting for free plus the two Eurosport channels as part of my Entertanment Max package.
I would say only 40% of my TV viewing is sport. As im more in to TV shows/TV box sets and movies.
Just cancelled my Sky Sports with BT. They even offered to cancel it immediately without me even asking.
I think that's the clear indication we needed which says BT are now prepared to see Sky Sports completely off the platform. Others have posted similar stories of being offered immediate cancellation with lost days viewing refunded. BT know they don't need Sky Sports on the BT TV platform anymore, if indeed they ever did to begin with. BT have been stung and they're somehow fighting back. Fair play to them!
Definately does seem that BT want to get rid of Sky Sports on BT TV. Think it might have gone done better with customers if they'd been honest abouit it and just siad"unfortunately we are no longer able to offer Sky Sports channels on BT TV". Will Sky Cinema be next to go?
Although this does seem to be driven by Sky, BT seem willing to let it lapse & much as I don't like to move over to Sky (as that's what they want!), sport, in particular football & cricket are important to me so I will be at least partially moving to Sky for that.
I'll probably end up with a mixture of BT & Sky as that may work out the most cost effective solution.
