Over the years I have paid a Sky subscription at the end of january for sport, and then in autumn have stopped it at the end of the Super League season, on average my team Bradford Bulls have been featured 7-8 matches per season in line with most other clubs except league leaders who are usually featured more. This season Bulls have been only featured 3 times, I don't include M weekend where all clubs are featured. I would like to remind Sky I am a subscriber and irrespective of what club I follow 3 matches a season is hardly value for money.
I did think of stopping my subscription, but this only means I will not be able to watch any Super League at all and is only causing myself to be disappointed. Therefore I am writing to Sky to ask if they can explain the reasons why the downturn on Bulls matches. If the response is unsatisfactory I will report them to the Ombudsman on the grounds of discrimination. It would appear at present that they are discriminating against Bradford supporters who like myself are subscribers.
Incidentally, only three clubs have gone 8 weeks without an home fixture, and of course Bradford is one of those which for a side who is only paid half the Sky money makes things harder.
