    Still plenty on Sky Sports that I want to watch - it's a shame they can't show the World Cup as well as ITV and BBC so those who have it can benefit from the superior coverage.

    I'm on a 6 month reduced rate anyway as called to cancel - worth a call.
    MFW 2015 #41 = £20,515/£20,515
    MFW 2014 #41 = £26,100/£25,000
    MFW 2013 #41 = £10,000/£10,000
    Original MF date = May 2036 - MF achieved on 15 June 2015

    What would be "superior" about Sky's coverage? Every game will be shown live on either BBC or ITV and it won't cost a penny in subscription fees.

    Unless Sky were effectively given the rights they wouldn't be interested- Sky's whole business plan is based on exclusivity and sharing with the terrestrial broadcasters would mean that they would have barely anyone watching even an England.

    Just called to cancel my sports for the same reason, I was offered 3 months half price but declined it. No other offers given.

    Commentary, presenters, pundits - all better with Sky Sports in my opinion.

    You think Sky's presenters and commentators are "better" than the BBC's "Match Of The day" team?:eek:

    BT Sport has been a breath of fresh air. Despite Michael Owen.

    Undoubtedly. No contest and I do watch both of them.

    Been really disappointed by BT Sport. Very poor. Jake Humphrey seems to think the show is all about him.
