Yes, that was only an initial thing. Getting people to lock-in for two years gives Sky extra revenue in case lots of people decide to leave when they lose the Champions League from next season...

That's not true, otherwise everyone would lose BT Sport 6 months after they sign up to an 18 month contract.

It's so they can get you on the phone or on chat and try to sell you other things, or lock you into a 2 year contract with the free broadband.

I have Original + Sports with 60% off. So, including the "50% off for 6 months" offer and the fact that Movies is half price if you have Sports already, it would be 1.70pm extra for me I think (for...

Not surprising since ITV have sod all football rights as of next season (England only) but that's a good thing IMO since their personnel are just poor. I hope the BBC retains the rights and Adrian...

Obviously if there was a DVB-T2 switch-over there would be no SD simulcasts. All DVB-T2 equipment is HD and AVC compatible.

Why not put them in the extra 8 pixels that are discarded by consumer sets and standard media players (1080i/p is encoded as 1920x1088 for codec efficiency reasons)?

Nah, can't call it "crap". A minimum requirement. A hell of a lot better than SDTV or DAB radio, that's for sure. The 192 kbps AAC featured on iPlayer/BBC website radio is of course even better.
