old3eyes:martyyn: I have Sky for one reason and one reason only. English Premiership football in HD. Arsenal are on every week and I can sit down on a Sunday morning with my boy and watch the game in all its glory.
There are only ever two or three movies a month which interest us and anything else we watch is through FreeviewHD on the HTPC.
If it wasnt for the football we wouldnt bother at all with Sky. The amount of American rubbish just astounds us. You would think we were a part of the USA with the amount of programming there is. Thank god for the internet and Match of the Day, Have I Got News For You, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, Survivors, Waking the Dead and Skins is all I can say :)
Ever stopped to think that lots of people think that soccer is rubbish as well?? Most boring game in the world to watch. He who does the best Hollywood wins the game..
Each to their own I guess. For me, nothing better than watching English soccer, particularly Arsenal, with my son. I find rugby now to be incredibly boring. Soccer, league, grand slam tennis are all far more exciting for me and my family. That is just my opinion though. I respect all of the passionate NZ rugby fans but I don't agree with their views that rugby is the best thing since sliced bread.
