There were a few years when rights to away England games were sold by the hosts' broadcaster, and that ended up being Sky sometimes. I do prefer the way it's done now if it means all the games are...

In short, yes. Right now I don't think there's any SD channel on Freeview that has more bandwidth than its satellite equivalent.


Not much difference. Satellite would typically have higher bit rates...

Last year I was paying about 60pm for the full Sky TV package (except Movies), fastest unlimited FTTC available, and line rental. Anyone paying 100pm is doing it wrong.

I should've been more specific. The top-tier 80/20 Mbps FTTC is 30pm with Sky and, AFAIK, has never been included in any kind of offer.

It does seem better this way, agreed. I see this game is on Sky Sports 5. What is the activation stuff all about? Do you have to extend your Sky contract to access Sky Sports 5 even if you have a Sky...

To be fair, Sky sneakily add HD red button streams sometimes, like for the US Open (golf), and then remove them again without any announcements. I doubt that'll happen for football though since it...

Even with the best sources, radio rarely sounds good anyway. Way too much dynamic range compression (as if modern recordings needed any more of that), unless you're listening to BBC Radio 2 or...

At least with the BBC you can see the resolution if you right-click the video. Full screen is usually 704x396 for smaller "SD" videos (bit of a misnomer because it's obviously all shot in HD). If you...

Hmm fair enough. When I went to a different part to look at prices, the Sky Premium HD package had a small print saying that Sky Sports 3, 4, and F1 weren't available in HD. I guess that needs...

The installer that did mine just drilled a hole, fed through the cables, then fit some circular rubbery things to "seal" the holes. No wall-mounted boxes.

I'm not sure of the exact resolution but it clearly isn't HD. SD streams on iPlayer use a really weird resolution so maybe Sky do as well. I think the bit rate when at maximum quality is ~3 Mbps,...

I mean seriously, why would even legitimate Sky customers use Sky Go when they can get better quality streams elsewhere? Why can't Sky provide a legitimate way to watch at least a 720p/25 stream of...
