    Heard this in the background while listening to Sky News and thought it may be of interest to people contemplating the Sky Sports channels.

    This also mean that if there is anything on Sky Sports this week that you fancy watching at the weekend then all you need to do is record it & then watch it t the weekend when Sky Sports is free to all subscribers.

    Blimey that's a good offer.

    I'm a subscriber already so it doesn't affect me, but do you think this also includes the HD coverage?

    If so and there are those out there with HD but without sports (there must be some I suppose ;) ) I'd strongly recommend they tune in for a taster.

    Yes, it's just the converse of not being able to watch recorded content after downgrading a subscription. The progamme is decrypted when played back not when recorded.

    Nothing there I'd want to watch. Is there any golf or snooker, or is "Sport" just a synonym for "Footbball"?

    That just might be the reason, although I could watch HD!
