I have finally given in and gotten Sky Sports, even though i don’t have a TV plugged in for it. My groovy laptop can take Sky Player for now, and the amount that i’ll watch it on there warrants the £35 or so by itself. Watching matches streamed on dodgy sites (if i was to try that!) only works well sometimes, and to have the proper Sky coverage is always preferable. As much as i hate Murdoch, the twat, this service is good and as a sports fan is well worth the cash so i can’t grumble.
With my handy HDMI cable i can also play Sky on the main TV via the laptop.
When we get moved out to a proper flat with our own space then i can get the rest of the package and get a top TV to match with all that 1080 magic etc.
