Good news indeed, since BT Vision were rumoured to be in for it. I would think they'll increase the cost and maybe introduce a HD channel on their spare Sky slot.

Good news if you watch NRL, bad news if you only want to watch Championship... Unless it means more pubs & clubs will subscribe to Premier!
I can't understand why they don't do Pay-per-view for the customers who don't watch much Telly?

Just renewed my subscription. Gone up to £95.50p for the year. Still broadcasting on Thursdays the Championship games. Fev tnext Thursday. NRL in addition. Easy Peasy. I just cancel Sky Sports at end of rugby season and then renew when season starts. Saves 3 months subs. Premier runs March to March. So renew just as season starts in Championship. Cracking games all round. Cost of Premier Sports net around £25 to £30 for the year.
