Just got a promotional email from Sky saying iSky live sport streaming is now available for free to Sky Sport Subscribers (used to be just multi-room subscribers I believe).  This is good news.

I'm on TelstraClear ADSL, from reading other threads on here this may be not such good news...but let's see how it goes.

Its been free for months. Charging for a D1-CIF feed is pushing things I think. I don't consider the quality to be remotely acceptable.

Spyware: Its been free for months. ...

Really?  I thought that was just for multi-room subscribers?  Wish someone had told me sooner.  Won't be using it a lot but it would have been handy on a few occasions.

yeah, don't see how this is big news. It's been free for ages.

I suppose it's nice to be able to watch a bit of the olympics or cricket at work, but vast majority of decent sproting events happen in the evening when I'm at home anyway, so why would I want ot watch crummy blocky picture on a tiny screen when I can watch HD on my big TV

Quite a fan if iSky and it has been free for ages.
It fills a void when the Mrs is watching a boxset back to back!!!

The little things make the biggest difference.
