Re: number keeps appearing on screen, sky sports 1

Oh and can I just add if you are monitoring this 'Virgin'

 

 to put it politely its ruining my viewing experience, coupled with the fact that I have to pay extra to watch the Sky sports channels in HD when other broadcasters offer it as standard I maybe re-considering my subscription.

The number is unique to you, everybody else will see a different number that's how they 'know' who is illegally streaming it if they see it on the stream.

 

BTW nobody offers Sky Sports in HD for free per se.  You get it as standard on Sky if you have the HD pack but it will cost you £10.25 per month but you get access to every HD channel, subject to your subscription, so technically you are being charged to watch Sky Sports in HD. I can see where you're coming from on this issue however, Virgin charge a fee to have Sky Sports & Movies in HD but that is down to the carriage deal they made with Sky.

I really object to this number.  It should not be necessary and is very irritating.  Get rid of it, Virgin!

Re: number keeps appearing on screen, sky sports 1

I, like many other Virgin customers object to the poor excuses given on this forum to the numbers displayed on sports channels.  Sky display them above their logo, which has less effect on the viewer.

 

 

if, as a company the size and self importance as Virgin, you cannot persuade Sky to move it to the top right for us, the customer, as you claim the position is decided by Sky, it is very poor indeed and shows disregard for us.

 

i suspect they are in the bottom left as this is the standard position for Virgin messages, delay times, etc and would cost you to move them.

 

come on Virgin....listen to your customers.
