    Yep, everything sports. Also, if you see anything you fancy watching which is on today/tonight (before the offer comes in), record it anyway, you'll then be able to play it back over the weekend ;)

    There are many discussions on this forum about the sky sports weekend, so won't go into more detail.

    But the problem I have with this deal is that it isn't free for me and Sky Sports subscribers, as we are paying for it anyway.

    Surely for it to be free they would need to give all Sky Sports subscribers a refund of what the weekend would normally cost them.

    Its a promotion to try and entice new or existing customers without the sports channels, not to give you a free weekend, still, if you want to argue it over with Sky to reclaim your £1.13 then go for it, but would suspect it will cost you more in the phone call :D
