    I got sports, variety, box sets & unlimited broadband with line rental reduced to £50 last September, discount due to run out this month but just had a letter saying they've extended the discount for a further 12 months!

    I also cancelled sky for my dad last week, he had sports and variety, he was paying £60. They called him yesterday and offered it for £25 for 12 months!

    They seem pretty desperate to keep people at the moment

    I believe time will be the catalyst for Sky with so much new competition.
    It happened with BT back in the day and they will have to adapt to the new markets or go under.
    Price wise they are fighting a losing battle and most people can now see the wood from the trees and haggle or leave.

    Someone needs to realise that people want just sports - as it is you cannot get sports through anyone (except NowTV) without an 'entertainment package' (read: 100s of channels no-one watches.)

    I was about to ask this exact question. So even with the new sports channels they've done, there's no way of selecting a package consisting only of either a few of or all of the sports channels and nothing else? There must be millions out there like myself who would just have the sports!

    The only (legal) way to do it, as far as I can see is with a NowTV monthly pass, but that is £33/mo for literally just standard definition sports.

    Yeah I've got an Apple TV so I use the Sport day pass sometimes for £6.99 which isn't too bad, but like you say only standard definition!
    Will have a look at this, thank you!
