Re: New Sky sports channel

Thanks Eddie. I know it is a guide. But how can we find out how and why it was changed?

 

In its place is a documentary on the 1988 Olympic games!  

 

Just does not make any sense to broadcast c99% of the matches on Sky Sports 1 to​ 5 and then move the FINAL to Mix so Now TV customers cannot see it?

 

I have no idea how many customers buy weekly passes for the ATP tour but this will do Now TV no favours.

 

I for one will not be back and will be complaining.

 

Thanks

Re: New Sky sports channel

Completely understand @Ian771

 

 

I have raised this to our Content Team also to find out the reasons for this and to find out if there is any plans at all to bring the Mix channel to Now TV.

New sports channels mean you will miss sports on NOWTV sky sports pass

There is now another new Sky Sports channel "The Players" which alongside "Sky Sports Mix" has been started to take out exclusive games (the finals of the IPL cricket, live European Tour Golf) so that they are not available to NOWTV Sky Sports subscribers.

 

Sky Sports Pass on NOW TV is a con.

Re: New Sky sports channel

Ian77 - there is now yet another channel called "Sky Sports - the players" (launched May 8th) which will be showing the finals of the IPL. See the tv guide, currently Saturday 20th the semi finals only on "the players".

 

Presumably yet another channel not included in the 'all Sky Sports channels' NOW TV passes.

Re: New Sky sports channel

Hi Eddie-M

 

Thanks for your message yesterday:

 

"To email us you would need to log in to your account go to the Contact us section and click on Send Message"

 

I must be thick - but then I go to that section, there is no "Send Message" option?  Am I looking on the right place?

 

Btw - Last night, half way throught the second semifinal at 10:30pm, the transmission moved to Sky Sport Mix so I did not see the end of the match. 

 

I was going to buy another pass for the Rome Masters (starts tomorrow) - but I cannot be bothered now.  I don't trust your scheduling.  

 

Thanks

Ian

Re: New Sky sports channel

Thanks for the tip Mikeysteam, but I don't watch the IPL.

 

Plus, I am now done with Sky / Now TV.  Sky Sports Mix is now a swear word in my house.

Re: New Sky sports channel

Hi Eddie-M

 

Please ignore my last message - I finally found a way to get to "live chat".

 

I was offered a full £10.99 refund or another weekly pass. 

 

I took the money!

 

Thanks again for your help.

 

If those marketing guys in Sky think that Sport Mix will get Now TV customers to move to full Sky, I think they dropped the ball!

 

Bye

Ian

Who wants to watch '25 episodes' only to find out that the grand finale episode 26 is not available.


Sadly it is a fact of life with Sky/Now.  Watch something like The Walking Dead or the tennis and they take it off with no notice just are you are going to watch the final.  Not even an as live re-run just highlights at 1am...
