    Does anybody here think Sky could lower their very lowest base pack price near to the analogue switch off and bundle a few more General Entertainment services and a few music channels on for perhaps about £7.99 like Top Up TV, to entice remaining analogue viewers into a cheap digital pack or will they stick to advertising "FreeSat", with low quality Entertainment, and shopping and news services. :)

    The word "$ky" and "lower prices" don't seem to fit together particularly well in the same sentence.

    More likely they will try to charge for the free pack.

    Tony Ball before he left outlined SKY's future with upto 12 million subscribers but the gap between the current 7mill and the higher figure would have to be filled by lower priced and lower spec packages.

    SKY will eventually do a "TUTV" style of package it's just the need to balance out the money from new subscribers against the loss from current subscribers downgrading.

    Your right there. Jusr found the Sky mag and guess what, the subs are going up AGAIN :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored:

    And they have the cheek to say that they will show real improvements.... like showing the movies at staggered times. Well thanks... not.

    I cannot see why I have to help Sky pay for excessive payments to football matchs that I choose not to see and with all the publicity they had about mega profits you would think they would give us a break. Sorry wishful thinking :)

    Rant over!
