People at Sky



  • How is it - that you can either watch this game live - which @Stargazer will. Or you can crawl out of bed at 7am on Sunday morning to watch it (which @Stargazer will) :)....or you can wait to watch it at 12.30 pm (which @Stargazer possibly will as well), by which time anyone else who hasn't previously watched it will know the score.

    Why....why, why, why, why, why...is there not a replay at about 9am, when those of us who have been working all week and would like to lie in, can roll out of bed at a pleasant hour and watch without knowing the score?

    Now, it's possible that I'm the only one of your subscribers who is constantly frustrated by your policy of not replaying South African-based games - be it Rugby Championship or Super Rugby - at a pleasant Sunday morning hour, but I doubt it.

    So can someone from Sky please turn up and explain why this doesn't happen?

    I'm going to suggest that, until that happens, that it's because the person in charge of scheduling is a fucking moron. So please point this out to him/her.

    Then take him/her down to the stocks, where that Wellington flanker is hopefully located. And boot his/her arse twenty times for me. πŸ™‚



  • @chris-b I bet the scheduler is a church goer.

    I don’t mind it when a game or replay is that early myself as I often have other things to do and I can watch most of the game in peace without the missus interrupting.



  • @chris-b two words: Sky Go

    Personally I will be rocking out of bed at 1am. But will be recording on Foxtel Go in case of alarm malfunction, extreme fatigue or drunkeness ...



  • @booboo Two more word to add "Sky Go Get Fucked!" πŸ™‚

    I have an expensive television and an expensive Sky subscription and I wish to watch the match at an obviously convenient time, without having to fuck around downloading it.



  • @chris-b dont you have a set top box you can record it on?



  • @kiwimurph I do - but, why should I have to. My internet is a bit shit.

    It is fucking obvious to me that replays of all South African matches through the year should be replayed at about 9am - but Sky have not done this for the past decade and more I want an explanation of why not!

    Just get out of bed you lazy bastard.



  • @crucial I may for this one - but there are endless Super rugby games that are equally poorly serviced by Sky and they need to fix it.

    @sumostevenson You still reading here?

    Exert your influence! πŸ™‚



  • Record it you povo fuck



  • @mariner4life

    "I'm going back some day...come what may....to Blue Bayou....."

    Fuck off and get your dengue treated! πŸ™‚



  • The SA-Aust game last Sunday was replayed at 9 am, as I watched it then.

    But I'd just MySky the test to watch when you like.



  • @bovidae

    OR...how about someone from Sky turn up and explain to us why this one - presumably a much higher demand match - isn't being played at the same time?

    Hard drive?



  • @Chris-B I think I meant "My Sky". ("Sky Go" is the app huh?)

    As @mariner4life said ... record it.

    Fuck I recall VCRs being around in like the early 1980s. Technology has advanced ...



  • Yeah...many thousands of people can waste their time recording it - OR perhaps Sky could do the obvious thing that any organization with half a brain and ten fucking sports channels would do and replay the biggest fucking game of the week at the time on Sunday morning when I suspect there's lots of people who would like to watch it!

    Instead of the piles of shit they're playing at 9am.

    Can someone explain to me why they don't?!!!!!

    Coz they think you can all record it?



  • Grab remote, look in guide, press record button. You'd think you were being asked to wipe with sandpaper!



  • @booboo If that is what they are thinking they are applying absolutely fuck all thought.

    Ten years ago, I'm pretty sure they did it to try to coerce everyone to pay extra for MySky, but that reason is long gone.

    Either there is some way they are still able to generate revenue by not televising it in what I would considerr a prime spot - or they're just morons.

    To be honest I can't understand why you guys are apparently supporting this moronic line?

    Especially when you're in Australia!



  • Am I actually very surprised their are people with Sky that don't have MySky. I didn't think they even made non recording boxes anymore.
    And if you still have one from years ago you probably weren't paying attention when you could have upgraded for free.

    That would be why they think their customers have the ability to watch when they want (as long as they remember to record)
