FYI, didn't see this mentioned here but it seems that the live sports channels on iSky are available without multiroom until the 24th Oct:

http://skytv.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1351/kw/isky%20multiroom/session/L3RpbWUvMTMxNjEzOTI3Ny9zaWQvb1c4NE9iRWs%3D

I'm a tad bit disappointed though because I only just started using iSky and didn't realise that it's usually multiroom only, stink. 

Still, enjoy it while it lasts, should be handy watching games on my iPad.. oh right no flash.

Well, Live sport is all I'd want to use it for anyway.

I have sky purely for the F1, so if I'm out of town and miss a GP that's like $40 it costs me! :)

What would make it actually worthwhile would be if they could make the F1 coverage (perhaps even just the highlights package) available for 'catch-up' viewing.

The inconvenience of Grand Prix fandom is generally more around the Timezone that it occurs in...  so 'Live Streaming' is not really helping much in that respect.

They do have a highlights package for F1 but it only lasts for two days.
