    My brother in law who is thinking of switching from Sky to ITV Digital was told by a local retailer to hold fire as the ITV Sport channel would be on Sky. Brother in law phoned Sky and experienced a very irate Sky supervisor stating that such information was confidential, who gave it to him etc etc. Brother in law now convinced that ITV Digital will appear on Sky.
    Can't see whay myself, ITV Digital are outselling 2-1 Sky at the moment (according to Home Entertainment). This is mainly due to their sports channel, why give this up? Especially after having forked out so much on the Champions League?

    later this year (november/december) ITV digital will start broadcasting alongside SKY on astra,(source:- What video & TV - October 2001 - page12 ) so its highly likly that all ITV Digital channels will be available on sky.
    Ask Sky if ITV1 is coming to Sky and they will gladly tell you "YES it is, but we can't say when".

    Cannot see this as a press release from either Sky or ITV digital (have searched their press release archives). This surely would have been announced. Not really concerned for me (I have no choice - not allowed a dish or cable) however my brother in law doesn't want to miss anymore matches (he missed Blackpool v Tranmere because it wasn't on Sky - he is a Blackpool fan and doubts they will be on again this season).
