Anyone heard about Skys' latest attempts to stop ITV, Ch4 and Ch5 following the BBC and going free to air? It seems they're trying to keep these channels encrypted after the current contracts run out next year in order to force viewers to subscribe to Sky for a viewing card. Not bad for the Governments attempt to create competion ! Seems to me that free to air ought to be the same on satellite as it is on terrestial. Viewers receive the main channels when they buy their tuners and NOT on condition that they subscribe to channels they don't want in order to recieve the channels currently available via Analogue. It's well known that there are many places where the only way to receive these "Free" channels after Analogue switch-off will be from satellite, so why should these viewers be penalised, let alone those of us who want Sky+ but don't want to subscribe to channels we will never watch.
