If they're planning on showing stuff like Masters of the Universe, She-Ra and Jem I'll be first on the bandwagon to pick up a sub.

It's not italitised so it must be a channel - same as SoHo listed above. All italitised are programmes.

Yeah, less channels and more high definition is required.  My eyes are bad enough without most channels broadcasting fuzzy.

The resolution is so bad that sometimes I turn Sky on and cannot work out whether or not I am watching a documentary of migrating wildebeest or another re-run of Keeping Up with the Kardashians...

why bother, when you can get it for free on youtube

This is the problem with Sky buying up cheap, old content.  It's so easily available elsewhere, and completely legal in many cases.
