I have sky sports but not in HD, as I didn't think it was worth yet another extra charge, and have now realised that the picture for eg (football) is worse than the picture 20years ago, so I take it this is done on purpose by virgin to get you to spend more money, Ive always perfered virgin for many many years but this will be my last contract with them. Yet another company that puts customers 2nd.
It is always on live events. Which of coarse is almost always. Football and f1, on football you can't even read the names on th back of their shirts and on a non HD channel its clearer than sky sports, it's definitely not my TV.
