And the answer is no. I'm really unhappy about that.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

That sucks, thats something I would watch.

Primary reasons for having Sky are Cartoon network for the kids and E for the wife. 95% of the time I watch either 2 or 3. The SciFi channel would probably change that!

As someone who has daily exposure to the lineup on Syfy I can tell you its really a disappointment.  Jump on the Syfy website and check out the quantum of repeats (and repeats of repeats even in the same week!)

I watch more Golf Channel - and I'm not really a  fan of golf.

lol yeah but it beats repeats of just one or two Sci Fi shows like we get now. Currently Sky only run Stargate and Atlantis and even then they dont run it in order.

Most of the good "SyFy" channel content is on bittorrent and video-streaming web sites if you'd like to see them before you die of old age.

The legal risks (if any) are all yours.  

I still remember one of the NZ networks sitting on Star Trek: Next Generation for 4 years just to keep the other one from broadcasting it. 

My family overseas sent me video tapes.

I have a feeling that C4 has locked down alot of Sci Fi content, they seem to beat Sky with the new shows (excepting SGU)

Email syfy yourself and ask them to make their full episodes available to New Zealand viewers on their website

I'm sure that answer from Sky has been there a while, I just remember seeing it before (before the petition even)

Decisions like this, and their compulsory channels really prevent me from considering Sky.

There is no way I'm paying $0.01 for Fox News.

TBH, Sky is a waste of time now, everything is repeated, No Syfy Channel. With C4 and Prime now available on Freeview, plus the likes of itunes, etc etc on the HTPC, It gives me better things to spend $80 a month on instead of wasting it on Sky TV

Like that will every happen.  You can't even see trailers most of the time.  The NZ content providers would do all they can to block it and SyFy  would say it's a licensing thing..

Thank God Sky has the wisdom not to show such crap.

Let the whingers whine...................... and cancel their subscriptions. Who is going to care?
