    How come every other country in the world gets highlights of world or european football when the UK doesnt.

    Sky TV in Italy shows goals of all matches in Europe in one program yet our Sky only shows the EPL and La Liga. WTF is up with that.

    Also we get Serie A on Bravo now!? Thats awful.

    Is Eurogoals still on Eurosport?

    Why do we get so much less than everyone else?

    I get Eurosport aswell:D To be exact Sky Italy shows EPL, Liga, SPL, Bundesliga, Serie A, CL, Uefa cup, and we have this free sports channel that shows Eredivise.

    Does anyone with Sky UK then know what channels show Ligue 1 or Bundesliga. I take it back about Bravo, their serie A coverage is v. good this season.

    UK tv sucks. The only way to watch decent foreign footy is to stay up late and watch the Argentinian, French, Portugese football, etc on Channel 5.

    If you have Sky Sports and Setanta Sports UK, it's all you need. The rest is a bonus.

    We had Setanta in Scotland (on NTL) but then we moved to England and changed to Sky after already paying for a full year. :|

    Setanta are showing a lot more this season. At £20 cheaper than last season as well.

    Sky italy is a monopoly, but it sure is hell worth it! In italy Sky and Setanta are affiliates, so we get SPL games.

    I don't think it's worth the inflated fee they ask.

    When you say Setanta, do you mean the PPV channel or the proper one that shows SPL?

    I'm looking at installing a motorised satellite setup (initial outlay about £300, then £100 for 6 months ART Sports) which will give me all the football I could ever imagine.

    Thats a bit expensive isnt it?
     
  27. truebluenose

    truebluenose Guest

    SKY - ~£40 per month
    Setanta - £14 per month
    Total - ~£620 per year

    Alternative:
    Outlay for equipment - ~£300
    6 Months ART Subscription - ~£100

    So after 1 year I'll have saved ~£120 and each month thereafter I'll save ~£34 per month. Now, which deal do you think is better?

    Just thinking about it myself though.
