Please tell me why I should stay with Sky

So can anyone give me a single reason why I should still have a Sky account?

Don’t say sport, I can stream whatever I want…plus there are multiple sports channels with far more sport than most could consume available on multiple systems including Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV (I have both) plus other systems. ESPN boxing and MMA coverage is superb, plus other sports that are never aired on NZ television, without paying extortionate fees to Sky TV for channels I barely watch.

Don’t say Movies, I can get whatever I want through Netflix, Hulu, HBO and a myriad of other services that in total don’t add up to the cost of even Sky Basic.   Read more »

Comment of the Day

With all the weapons grade howling coming from the left that their darling of prime time, John Campbell, could potentially lose his show there is barely any sensible discourse.

Luvvie state funded troughers like Russell Brown and Damien Christie are calling for squillions to be spent on public broadcasting, presumably only for their approved type of shows and people, with scant regard to commercial realities. I doubt they’d be keen on a publicly funded political show fronted by me for example.

One commenter at Russell Brown’s recipe, music and arts blog is Robyn Gallagher…who refreshingly understands the real problem.

Serious question: who here regularly watches Campbell Live? And by that, I mean the full episode, live to air. Not occasionally watching a video someone has shared on Facebook.

I don’t. I really like John Campbell, but I haven’t watched the show since the 2000s, and if Campbell Live had been cancelled five years ago I wouldn’t have noticed.

Campbell Live seems like one of those shows that people like the idea of in theory, but not enough people actually watch it for that theory to work in practice.    Read more »
