    The thing is that both elements can surely coexist, no?

    You are a factory of sadness.

    On a lot of stuff yeah, but I struggle to sympathise with people who think they have a moral right to steal content just because they can't or won't pay for it.

    Not that I don't pirate stuff, I just don't consider it a moral issue.

    Have to say, this is pretty accurate.

    I would argue though that it's on SKY/content providers in general to adapt to this change. As much as I believe I'm not owed anything by right and that if I want something I'll probably have to pay for it, I don't believe I owe them anything and that if I can get it for free I will.

    SKY have a football service, and if I want to use that service then I believe I should have to pay for it, but if I can watch football elsewhere for free, it's up to SKY to convince me that I should be watching SKY instead. I don't give a shit if they've got some piece of paper saying they've got exclusive rights to broadcast football.

    Are you banned on all the Spurs forums or something?

    I know what you're saying, but it doesn't really work like that when the alternative isn't legal (or a legal grey area, anyway). There are black markets in just about every product going, and so to paint it as market forces at work is fairly disingenuous.

    However, it absolutely can lead to an improvement for the consumer. Would something like Spotify exist without the rise in 'alternative' ways to get music? I'm not sure. (Although it's worth noting in that case that it hasn't particularly benefited the majority of content creators, i.e. the artists in this case)

    edit: I've wandered a bit off topic there, don't really want to get bogged down in a classic piracy discussion.

    I worked in music retail pre spotify around the time of the emergence of Napster and they absolutely wouldn't have adopted the current methods nearly as quickly without the pressure. They were stuck in the past and were unable to understand or adapt nearly quick enough. It was obvious to most of the young people but the heads were dinosaurs.

    With the IOS Sky sports Tv app, they are removing the at the races channel end of June and ESPN channel at end of July. Still Sky Sports 1-4,SSN and Formula One channel for 4.99 a month rolling subscription

    I believe the app is on android as well

    If I stream a match that's not being shown on live TV in the UK then technically I'm not stealing anything.

    This may have been asked before but has anyone tried out that app on one of those Android mini PC TV sticks?

    @fletch7100 I just checked that out and the 4.99 only gives you access to SSN and highlights but not live sport unless you are already a Sky Sports subscriber separately otherwise that'd be a great deal :(

    @Slint1000

    I'm not a paying sky user and still use the app

    On iPad search for sky sports TV , the click on the iPhone apps. It's usually the first app on the list

    Not the greatest quality when screen is stretched on an IPad but for a fiver per month rolling subscription it's not too bad

    Ah I see what you mean; I was looking at the iPad app which is quite different. Might take it up when the season rolls around again since there's not much point paying for it over the summer.

    @fletch7100 Wow, I didn't know about that.

    Next question is then...any way I can get that image to display on my PC? I'm assuming not.

    Twitter is basically meaningless.

    Watching England U20s vs. Israel (couple of Everton lads starting) - looks like England's problems will continue for the foreseeable future as tactics-wise it's just like watching the seniors: slow side-to-side passing possession, then a long ball or two to attempt a break down the channels, invariably resulting in a dead end.

    On Eurosport btw.

    Luckily for Poyet, getting publically humiliated on live TV is actually a compliment in Uruguay.
