Suck it up and get a subscription. It's fucking brilliant.
i like their coverage of premier league games with steve mcmananananananman.
but i do miss the wild "i just rang alex fergusons house and his wife told me..." speculation that sky sports news has.
Far more than I expected.
people now have to pay 2 subscriptions in order to keep up with the english football and its affiars. Skys monopoly was a good thing to an extent, Setanta is a fucking rip off.
Dont setanta just run extra premiership and scottish league and non league games that otherwise wouldnt have been shown?
all of which is spafftacular.
They show Premier League games which otherwise would have been on Prem Plus. Fair play to Sky for getting rid of that, at least. They've also picked up Sky's rights to FA Cup matches.
If you just want English football, yeah. But they show more football than Sky for a quarter of the price.
How the fuck have they been able to afford the Prem and the only coverage of the England games? Obiously tehy need to entice people in subscribing with a decent events package but just how much longer can they bankroll it before subscriptions become higher than outlay?
that the puppets thing is actually really funny?
Am i just really wrong on this one?
