He reminds me of a certain line written in a book which goes "The past , The Present and The future" although l can't quite remember what chapter he is currently on.

Untrue. A few years ago, I did say that Sky Atlantic was coming, based on a Broadcast report, other reports I had received, and basically, the way things were going at the time. I was proved wrong and I have often admitted that, but in my defence, I would also point out that sometimes, channels are about to launch, and then something happens at the last minute, and the contract does not pan out. This happened in the earlier incarnation of Paramount, and the listings were actually carried in the TV magazines, but it was pulled at the last minute.

So I may have read this incorrectly, or perhaps there were last minute contractual issues. We may never know, but yes, on that occasion, I was wrong, and I have admitted that more than once. What do you want, blood?

There is renewed speculation now for a variety of reasons, but mostly on the basis of what Sky themselves have said, including the fact that SA will be available on all major TV platforms (which clearly includes BT) and their stated desire to monetise their assets, coupled with the fact that the 10 year contract between Sky and VM comes to an end next year.

So if you disagree with my view that we will get SA next year, that's fine, but you won't be taken seriously unless you, too, are clear about your reasons for being so sure. I'm sorry, but the usual refrain along the lines that 'Sky ain't never going to give up SA' won't wash, given that they have already agreed to let BT have it.

As for your remark about back tracking and changing with the wind (sigh) I expect that is reference to my view that our conventional channels will disappear in time. I know that Denphone confuses the present with the future, but this is the first time I've realised that you seem to do this as well! Nothing I predicted there was due to happen yet!

Just for the record, those predictions relate to 2030 or thereabouts. Are you clear about that now?

Well, Den, I have worked out that you have not yet got past the former, whereas I am definitely on the future.

C'mon, man, keep up!

Hayu is in our package but there's nothing very intelligent in there and we never watch it.

£3.99 for that rubbish? I would begrudge spending that on this even if I had money to burn.

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

With the loss of UKTV channels on VM from this weekend VM have tried to sweeten the pot with some replacement channels.

Comparing the channels lost and gained I am not sure most customers will think they have got a good deal. But as always VM were never to consider a price reduction.

The addition of Freesports (which i sometimes watch on freeview/freesat) is welcome addition for me as a sports fan. VM are also giving Premier Sport HD for free for 2 months which i will take advantage of. If this was going to be a permanent arrangement with the channel bundled in a package that would have been great . sadly not.

But as I am already shelling out well over £100pm (and regular price increases to boot) I simply refuse to pay any more. I cant afford ay more tbh.

The problem these days with sports rights is that there are becoming too many players in the market. With Sky Sports. BT Sport, Premier Sport, Boxnation and now another provider in Eleven Sports coming onto the scene it is getting too expensive to watch everything via standalone packages for I would say 99% of punters.

I recall a few years ago Premier Sport was a available without subscription for a
temporary period. I dont think they were overwhelmed with new subscribers once the free trial ended.

And they wonder why people still go down the route of illegal streams.

Free for 7 days and thereafter its probably a tenner a month which is why they are extremely reticent about revealing how much it is now.
