If you hate Primetime's ****ty coverage, fine, but you can't hate on them for charging what Sky would have done anyway and you'd have had no qualms about paying for that.
I do agree with your argument actually.
I really resent having to pay so much to see the boxing across all the various channels, but to blame one indvidual channel is unfair.
They are all as bad as one another (although Sky may be the worst because they charge the most and show so little for that price!
People have used the same argument to criticise Boxnation.
Its not fifteen pounds (or ten pounds) on top off.
You don't need Sky to get these other channels do you?
Its ten or fifteen pounds alongside IMO.
