Sky is better.
At what?
Football, the number of live premier division games and the best ones. That is my main consideration. I do not subscribe to the movie channels.

Re BT vs Sky

All that 'competition' between these companies has given us is that we must now pay twice.

Cricket should be careful that it doesn't marginalise itself in the long term for the lure of short term gain.

...Broadcasting Game of Thrones.
...and then allowing it to be released on Blu Ray, for anyone to hire via Cinema Paradiso from 12th December onwards. :violence-blades:

The baseline as changed. If it was free to air you wouldnt get the number of games you get now. Sky is not the evil tyrant portrayed

Correct.

My complaint is paying 2 companies instead of one. £30 per month becomes £60, (roughly speaking, I always haggle).

Not necessarily a logical complaint (as one company with all the sport would possibly be able to charge even more)...but I still complain.

BT had Arsenal v Man U last weekend, probably the best game of the season.
