I have just seen Sky's new promotion, where you get free install, and 6 months of half price subscription for basic , sports, and movies and 6 months free of there magazine, what i noticed is that the only sports channel you get now is ESPN and to get anymore you have to pay for them. IE: if you want to watch Rugby you now have to pay extra, i just want to know how long its been like that as i am trying to get my father to join but hes not keen to pay extra and i was sure you used to get Sky sport 1 and ESPN
