Does this mean that the programmes are going to change into something worth watching? Does anybody care?

Weird, Freeview must use differnt channel names to Sky, because according to the ads on Sky, Sky3 channel 108 will become Sky Atlantic HD in the next few days.

AlvinF: That's not correct. Sky Atlantic is a new channel, Sky3 is being moved to another channel number.

Really annoyed that Channel 1 has been taken off and supposedly those favourite programs like X Files/Star Trek put onto Sky Atlantic.
I am unable to get a Sky Subscription as I live in a listed building and permission won't be given to erect a dish antenna[or communal antenna. So that leaves me !!!!! irritated to say the least.
I telephoned Sky about this issue and spoke to 2 different people in Customer ` SERVICES! and they were, to say the least ,less than helpful and didn't appear to care less.I can only draw from this that Sky are not good employers and this rebounds onto the staff's dealing with the customers.
I'm fed up with control being taken out of the hands of the customers; who are essential to a companies success.

Bit of a rubbish name, really they should call it Pick Sky Tv(because we got or sights set on destroying Freeview and you got no choice but to join). Yeah i know that title might need abbreviating for the EPG but i still like it.

Pick Sky TV would be a good name as they want you to pick Sky TV.
They could call it 'This is the only Sky Free Channel' but that's too long for the EPG.

I think they have dropped the word Sky from the name to make people think that not all the channels on Sky are owned by Sky.

It's like going in to Currys, Dixons, PC World or Comet. Same shop owned by they same company, but different names.

Comet (part of the Kesa Electricals) is not the same company as Currys, Dixons and PC World (DSG Retail Ltd).

Do some research before speaking out...

Just bought a new Tv the other week from Currys, and they really have the pushiest most annoying staff always trying to scare you into buying an extended warranty, and this time i counted up 8 times i had to say no to them. I prefer going to Argos to buy Tv's, because they just say do you want an extended warranty with that? No... That's fine goto collection point B. Takes all of 2 minutes instead of the 20 minutes of harassment in Currys.
