Can't be that many! Sky lost a fortune in ad revenue. Most of my colleagues went the other way as Virgin seem to be offering better and better deals (retentions etc) than Sky and Sky One wasn't an issue.

I was smiffed at losing the channel as I am a big SciFi fan Sky1 is all the re-runs of Stargate, Simpsons and Malcolm that would keep me idle for hours.

I had a Sky sub and ditched them mid series of Stargate.

I just downloaded the episodes of the net.
(I ease my guilt in the fact that I buy the DVDs when released)

V+ is still very good, 3 tuners + 80hrs of recording.

Now that Sky1 is back now all we need is the HD channels....

Would that have been removed because of Sky buying a stake in ITV?

Perhaps with the new friendship things might progress. ;)

Not everyone will be gettting Sky 1. It depends on which package you have. I don't know whether it will be available to all subscribers who lost it.
Anyway, what's to stop Sky from moving anything decent away from Sky 1? I don't trust them.

"Not everyone will be gettting Sky 1."

Oh, do you have a source for that?

I suppose this is the reason that we have had some of the existing channels showing as 'no longer available'. They are making room for the Sky channels. To be honest I haven't missed Sky 1 since it went off, it was getting very poor in content. Virgin's own Virgin One is a much better channel, and channels like Sky Sports News are a total waste of bandwidth.
