A bit of balance!
Whilst I hate evil megalomaniacal firms as much as the next person, I have to say that there are 3 reasons why I recommend Sky - at least for me.
1. I live in an area of piss-poor TV reception, but with my SKY box I get perfect pictures everytime and a built-in record facility to save faffing around with video etc (yes, I have still got a video).
2. SKY broadband has proven to be ultra-reliable and considtent with good customer support (actually I only used it once and the girl at the other end knew what she was talking about)
3. The SKY + Phone package costs peanuts compared to some
4. The unlimited broadband option IS truly unlimited (handy for those pesky Linux distros)
Yes I know that's 4 but who's counting?
So say what you will about Murdoch - his firm delivers and, without it, I'd be kaboozled!
Just my tuppen'orth.
