So I haven't seen a thread on this yet but my custom TV engine for mediaportal has just picked up Sommet Sports on Sky, channel 69... Can someone using a decoder check the sports grouping please!

An April 8th post on their facebook page:

"We are delighted that we are now able to reach all Kiwis in New Zealand and able to offer you free to air sports. The platforms we are now on are Freeview HD, Freeview satellite, Sky, Igloo, and Vodafone T Box."

Also their about us info:

"New Zealand's Free to Air Sports Channel - On Channel 14. Freeview HD and Freeview Satellite, SKY Ch 69, Vodafone T Box Ch 69, Igloo Ch 27"

So yes sounds as though they are now on Sky. Excellent.

I went to remote record something on Sommet Sport using the app on my android phone. No TV guide on there. I asked Sky on their facebook page when it would include Sommet and got the following response "Currently no plans to include that in our program guide"

Not good enough Sky. Sort it out. The program guide is on your website and in the epg so why can't you put it on your app?

It is on the iphone app and I just tested it and it seems to work. the problem is it isn't under the sports section. it is under entertainment and is under the all channels bit. So is that not the case on the android app?

Good work. It is on there. Only looked under the sports section. Seems like the Sky people don't know what they are talking about either.
