That's cheap for the amount of games you get...

Yeah data costs would be the main issue. I've hit my 80GB cap very early this month by watching a lot of IPL (high quality) on youtube

That's odd.  Here it is getting on for mid May and I have still to receive anything from Sky about changes to ESPN, pricing for Sports channels, price increases and everything else applying from 1 June.

Just got it today, letter came with my bill. Maybe if no bill, I.e. If amount hasn't changed, then no letter.

19 days goes into June, but got charged the $52.69 start up price, don't have sports, maybe get some credit back next months bill for the 19 days.

To me putting espn into sports is saying you either buy everything or buy nothing, doesn't matter if have interest or no interest in channel. At least they're still keeping Rialto separate from movies so can choose to buy one or both.

Football fans aren't so lucky, the Champions League final is too soon for the transition to HD :(

All I want now is for them to bring back the Dutch Eredivisie.

Hopefully they'll show Game 1 of the NBA finals on WED afternoon instead of MLB. surely they can change that.
