Paying Sky for free public service television channels
Tuesday 30 August 2011 5:11PM

Yes, we all have to pay the BBC license fee but that really shouldn't mean that the BBC should pay to have its services broadcast and listed on the Sky EPG. Surely they should just make sure that the broadcasts and EPG information is available to Sky to take up at their own choice. If they choose not to (a perfectly reasonable business decision that they can make) then it is up to the Sky subscribers to force the issue.

£11m seems a ridiculous amount to have to pay.

And if Sky refuse, sky subscribers still have the option of using a free service (freeview / freesat) in addition to their sky service after all.
