Its a gift. ;)

There's a lot of things I like about Sky, but I'm well aware of their faults too (ditto VM for that matter).

Are you using HDMI instead of SCART?

Why wouldn't it?

The EPL has been behind a paywall for 20 years, if anything there's more coverage of football online and in the press then ever before. Why would cricket get less coverage?

Of course they do.

People seems to think that the more money someone is paid, the less rights they have and the less human they should be.
