    Is this on NTL now, my mate says it is but that they can only show the default game?

    I.e last night you could watch the Chelsea game but you don't have the option to switch to another game

    Anyone know anything about this?

    I was pretty sure that it was only on Sky Digital, but I could be wrong!

    I have NTL (ex Cable & Wireless) and SSX has appeared on channel 950.

    No interactive as yet.

    I left Sky for NTL 2 months ago 'cause i was going for broadband with them and thought I may as well have it all with the same company.

    After 6 weeks my TV was back in the trusty hands of sky - the limited channels you do get with NTL are all in the wrong order, the onscreen menu is not as good to navigate with - interactive is very limited and intermitent and the remote just doesn't fit as nicely in the hand.......:-(

    I don't like giving them the money but Sky are the best. Back to the subject - no you don't get sky sports extra...

    the phone and broadband are good with ntl though :)

    Just checked, Xtra is indeed on 950.

    But got to think the interactive part will not appear on NTL, otherwise why take sky for sport?

    Just to clarify my point - I meant that the interactive coverage is only on Sky
