I assume by Luddite you mean a backwards person unwilling to embrace new technology? Like someone who still pays for satellite television and has an ugly satellite dish on the side of their home, when TV can be streamed from the internet on demand for a fraction of the cost of Sky?

I've used Eurosport Player for a couple of years now and it's very good.  Why pay £20/month for Sky, if you're mainly interested in bike racing and you can watch Eurosport Player online for less than £3/month? 

The quality is good and the HD looks near perfect on a laptop.  Not bad either when connected to a TV via an HDMI cable.

Plus, they have loads of videos on demand if you missed something, although annoyingly these videos don't always have commentary.

Chimney Potions a SKY Insider

Sounds like Chimney Portions is some of SKY insider or lackey....Personally you can shove SKY where the sun dont shine....Rupert Murdoch is another global media dictator who's empire needs to be dismantled...yes you have a choice whether to subscribe (in theory at least,) but can you cope without your 'fix',? Thats where the brainwashing comes into play...clever marketing

So with this I can keep my rubbish Freeview channels and get bike sport for £3 a month or I can buy Sky with its rubbish freeview channels and a Sports package and pay £30 a month. Cheapskate? Luddite? That ChimneyPortions is a foolish geek.

Hhmmmm!!!

Sounds reasonble to this luddite (I choose not to get SKY because I definately DON'T want my subscritpion going to overpriced football players or supporting that idiotic sport.) £30 for the year  means that they'll be getting little from me but I'll be able to see this years bike racing plus the Dakar rally etc.

£30 a year for a channel that shows something I actually want to watch - motorbike racing, or £20-£30 a month to feed a corparate entity that is a stench on this world? Yeah I'll take the £30 a year and the motorbike racing thanks.

Really

Are there really that many people who don't have Sky.

Why so much anti SKY feeling.

iPad/iPhone vs PC/Mac versions

Be aware that if you subscribe to the iPad/iPhone version, your subscription isn't valid for the PC/Mac version, and visa versa. Choose wisely. Nearly got caught out by this myself.

Sky

Chimney - just did a random survey of the office here. 30 out of 50 don't have SKY, of the remaining 20 - 8 are getting ot of their contracts and going onto other providors, 4 are thinking about it. I personally haven't got SKY as don't have time to watch much Feeview stuff, let alone SKY, tend to go to a pub with my friends to watch sport, and am out most weekends on my Vstrom or with the missus etc. SKY is old hat now, with people being able to pick one or 2 things they want to watch via streaming media and subscribing to them rather than having to take a package that basically just gives you a bunch of American rubbish. The sun is starting to set on the SKY empire.

As an FYI - the 8 who are leaving said they were surprised that the sales people at SKY didn't seem to bothered in trying to keep them with cheaper packages etc. One even said he felt like they just don't give a monkey's.
