Sky Sports News is by far and away the best sports news service anywhere and should really have a 5 Star Rating but for just a few things. Sky have made a very bad judgement of error taking this off of freeview.
Firstly, Advertisers will be annoyed that their audience has become restricted to just Sky viewers (there are still a lot of people without Sky you know as it is not always affordable in these times)and also it is a slight own goal for the company as it is a platform outside of the Sky cirlce to promote the rest of SKY TV and entice people in to buy it, especially for the sports services it promotes. There is too much nepatism on the channel. Just because somebody's daddy used to play for Liverpool or their brother is a rugby player should not automatically qualify for the job. However, points aside, the presenters are usually good, charming, funny, and very presentable. Some of the technical glitches get on your nerves though and I wish there was an option to get rid of ALL the screen captions and Logos. I know what channel I am watching without needing a constant reminder... but this applies to ALL channels. Some logos are huge. Next it will be a picture frame of advertising and the picture will be surrounded by rubbish. I don't want this on my TV thank you!
I have the full sky package however I find myself watching Sky Sports News most of the time. Would recommend without a doubt but I know many who are angry it is not on Freeview now and Sky need to put this right as soon as possible and restore the service. You do usually hear all the latest sports news there first though.
