How many subscribers do you think it will cost them?

Makes me glad I'm with Virgin TV, but if I were still with Sky, they'd certainly lose my sub over this.

They'll lose even more if they don't reduce the price of their sub to compensate for this loss!

I read about this, and there is a price hike on Skytalk from March, which also includes the internet, my TV package is reduced 20p less... peanuts... what's the point.

I'm thinking of switching to Freeview, but I think I lose FOX and some other channels from my Original Bundle from Sky

I suspect Sky will lose more in lost subscriptions than the increase Discovery were asking of them...

Have you got a Now TV box? You can live stream and catch up with FOX and others with an Enterainment pass for £6.99 a month

Sky Sports subscriptions were not reduced in price when they lost the Champions League so I can't see Sky reducing their subscriptions because of the loss of a few channels.

As much as I would love it to have a negative impact on Sky, I don't think they'll be that much difference.

I suspected that would happen - they were sh*t-scared at how many subscribers they were likely to lose! rolleyes.gif

only a few?

discovery have loads of channels

I for 1 will miss home and health (untold stories of the E.R especially), and discovery investigation

when is this happening, do we know?

only thing that we can hope is that sky will add some brand new channels (think of how many blank spaces their will be on the EPG)
