i wonder how many others would be thrilled to get eurosport asia-pacific on sky.

i've tried to convince them to add it since i moved here 3+ years ago but they keep telling me no one in nz really care for it.

after finding this place (*wave*) i got some hope in finding maybe others with similar wish. with enough people requesting something maybe sky could not shrug it off.

search of the forums did find couple of entries...

Yes, i'll be in but only as part of the sports package. Not sure if i want to pay extra for it, what sort of sport do they cover anyway?

+1 but not prepared to pay extra for it.  They can instead ditch ESPN, picture quality is atrocious I can hardly bear to watch it (applies to football, nothing else worth watching on ESPN IMO).

yes, i'd be up for that, and Setanta. Yes, i'd pay extra for it. They show a lot of motorsport and wintersport that Sky don't show.

Perhaps the caveat is the rugby coverage? There is potential clash of rights with the Rugby Channel. One reason why I understand they jumped up and down at Setanta being sold to customers in NZ. Rugby was but a small part of their offering, but once again, they decided to be pr__ks about it.
