We were hoping to ditch Sky for BT Vision now that the Port Isaac repeater is digital. Unfortunately it appears that it does not support the full range of channels (Sky Sports and ESPN are a must!)
Does any one know when/if this repeater will be upgraded - or as it only supports 500 houses is that unlikley?
