6 weeks of Sky Sports free

Partner just received an email telling her that we will receive 6 weeks free of Sky Sports, yeah very nice, but as far as I can see the offer doesn't include the HD versions as they aren't showing in the list.

I don't see the point in giving out this offer if it's not including HD for Sky Sports for the 6 weeks.

That just sounds ungrateful.
Have a car rental free for a week. No thanks - the car doesn't have satnav.

Re: 6 weeks of Sky Sports free

It's nothing to do with being ungrateful!

Surely if Virgin want a customer to pay extra following the free trial it's the HD version they should have access to.

Surely you are more inclined to take on the extra channels if you've seen it at its best ie in HD.

I'd happily have if for free without HD.  I pay for Sports without HD and in recent weeks it's perfectly fine for watching Chelsea and Arsenal lose.  The only sports I find HD absolutely necessary for are those with fast moving small balls, but enough about Formula 1 :-)      

Fortunately next week's Aussie Open is on Eurosport HD, so no big issue there, but sadly Premier Sports with Ice Hockey and Hurling which would benefit from HD are pmiariliy shown on Premier Sports which does not have HD.

Sky line up for next six weeks isn't that great.  There are two weekends lost to the FA Cup.  I suppose they do have the World Ping Pong championship, but I struggle to see the ball even in HD.

I didn't realise you could have it without HD only.

Re: 6 weeks of Sky Sports free

Only Sky Sports now has the HD premium.

Sky Cinema now comes with HD as standard without the additional fee. That's been the case since it changed from Sky Movies in June last year.

For the combined Sky Cinema and Sports Collection you pay the fee for the Sky Sports HD element.

Re: 6 weeks of Sky Sports free

I have just received this email too.

Can't access the channels though.

With the picture break up and broadband freezing, what a great time.

Typical VM in my experience.

Re: 6 weeks of Sky Sports free

Received the email this evening and the channels are there.

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).
¡No Pasarán!
