And won't be for some time, I guess! Glad to see there seem to be better relations between Sky and VM. I will soften my attitude towards Sky when we finally get Sky Atlantic and the HD channels that they appear to be denying us! Happy to bury the hatchet if the relationship is not so one sided.

Strangely the logo on BT Sports 2 is currently in the top right hand corner but BT Sports 1 is still in the bottom right hand corner?

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

So now as per the original topic:

1) ESPN - retained in XL and HD
2) BT - acquired in XL and HD
3) Eurosport - 1&2 in HD and XL
4) Premier sport - no (can they continue with likes of BT?)
5) sky sports news - only SD but rumoured HD soon

3 down two possibly one to go depending on how you look at it
