Thanks for that, yeah its not really worth the additional 15 bucks for those extra channels. 10 bucks a month for the other ones is pretty good though.

Does anyone know if thats a base price and you have to purchase additional tiers or whether you just get whats on the digtal box (thats available on analogue) ?

Incorrect... Sky Movies tiers, no Movies +2... Sky Sport tiers, no Sky Sports Highlights.

I'm not totally sure on that.. but I believe if you wanted Sky movies on Analogue then you'd have to pay for that tier.
