Ahh @Andy

 

 

No sweat do you want the whole thread moved over?


@Eddie-M I'm happy to let you do it however you think fit!!

 

Personally the whole thread probably doesn't need including  as it currently contains lots of info about current sporting events which seem to be worthwhile discussion on the main forum.

 

Do you feel like starting a new idea and crediting @ken242 as the originator of the idea to keep it nice and simple? How about the following:

 

 

"Sky Sports Mix is currently available free of charge to Sky TV subscribers, and contains a range of sporting content, including some content not available for viewing on the premium Sky Sports channels. As sporting events often cross over from the premium channels to Sky Sports Mix could we have the channel included as part of the NOW TV Sports Passes to allow fans to enjoy sporting events uninterrupted and in full. Idea originally suggested by @ken242 "

 

Cheers!

I wonder if it could be possible to add Sky Sports Mix via a dedicated 'perk' app, for NOW TV box owners only. In much the same way that Sky Sports News HQ is delivered Smiley Wink

Sky Sports Mix should be available to NOW TV Subscribers either as an extra channel on the Sports pass, an extra channel on the Entertainment pass or as a dedicated app as is the case for Sky Sports News for those with any pass whatsoever.    Alternatively NO live events should be exclusive to Sky Sports Mix, and if they are then an additional feed should be provided to NOW TV Sports pass whilst the live event takes place.

 

PS the red button live events should all be on Now TV

Below are two examples of two main retailers and they describe Sky’s Now TV sports pass. These details are incorrect and are falsely advertising the product. Now TV does not include Sky Sports Mix. This channel can only be viewed by full Sky customers. So the odd match / game will be shown on this channel. On 14 May, the Madrid Masters Final (ATP) tennis was shown on this channel. Now TV customers were outraged! In the last months, key cricket and rugby matches have been moved to Sky Sports Mix. Sky has refused to add this channel to Now TV.

 

Per Currys website:

 

Watch the biggest matches on your NOW TV box with the one-week NOW TV Sky Sports Pass. With access to all of the Sky Sports channels, you won't miss the big races, your team's match or the golf tour.

 

With this sports package, you can enjoy some of the biggest matches and live events, streamed straight to your television. You'll be able to enjoy access to all of the Sky Sports channels, so no matter what your favourite sport is, you'll be able to get straight to the action. This pass provides you with a week of access to these sports channels.

 

If you would like access to more entertainment and movies, these can be added to your package (sold separately).

 

With so many channels to enjoy, you'll be able to keep up with all the scores with the one week NOW TV Sky Sports Pass.

 

Please note: Wireless broadband (minimum speed 2.5 Mbps) required. Some apps may cost extra. Access to entertainment and movies sold separately.

 

Per Argos website:

 

Watch Sky Sports live with the Sky Sports Month Pass included with your NOW TV Box. With 7 Sky Sports channels to watch you'll never miss a race, game or match. This little box is super simple to set up and gives you the best of catch up TV including BBC iPlayer, The ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5. All with no contract

With respect @Ian771,

 

This is the Ideas for NOW TV area of the forum. Not the moaning area of the forum...

 

And you've already posted the same comments on the main area of the forum!

Thanks for your understanding @Ian771

 

Unfortunately this entire forum does not offer its users that level of functionality. I wish it did

 

I'm quite OCD when it comes to a tidy forum Smiley Wink

Thanks.

 

This forum is not flexible then!

 

Bit like Sky refusing to add Sky Sports Mix to Now TV!
