Seriously, why bother with a wish list

Sky employs enough beanie counters to work out the maximum revenue
they can gain, for the smallest cost

We are not going to see the new boll**ed up version of Sci-Fi

We are not going to get those Documentary channels in Hi-Def

We are not going to get ad-free content

We are not going to get a choice of what we can watch

The business plan that Sky adheres to, is that they want to get the maximum from each subscriber and they want this to be a continuous income stream. (hence the contractual terms)

If you want just documentaries, or just Sci-Fi, or just Movies...forget about it


You have got to pay a minimum amount of dollars , because you have no choice

Believe me.. you will get a better service in Bangladesh than you will get in N.Z.


In N.Z.  we do not get a service .. we get fleeced!

We already have other three active discussions on Sky pricing, and you are active in two of those. I am locking this one.
