Ok I was having a bit of a rant over at the Sky official forums recently (for my American readers if unsure, Sky is a satellite TV service). It was about the revelation that they were about to start charging for using the Sky TV app on my XBOX 360, which had previously been a free service, accessible as part of my existing Sky TV subscription … something they do called ‘Sky Go’ that enables existing customers to watch Sky TV on a mobile device like a phone or tablet, a PC and up to now, a games console (the Sky Go App is coming to the PS4 shortly). So I decided to have a moan!!
See my rant HERE – I’m called CraigUKGamer on there.
But what really surprised me was how this little, albeit justified rant actually caught the attention of a popular games website I frequent called ‘Eurogamer.net’. And what did they do when mentioning this little rant (I was clearly first to the post with it I presume…), well, they only went and quoted me directly! Wow. I am beside myself now. Check out the story HERE.
I sincerely doubt Sky will suddenly change their minds about his new policy, but hey, at least I feel my voice has been heard.
It’s a moral victory.
