Sky Sports 1
Advantages: Great coverage,
Disadvantages: Not that many premiership games.
Sky Sports is a subscription channel from Sky. At the moment it is availible for around £25 for current Sky subscribers. The reason I purchased it was for its Premiership Football coverage, on a normal weekend it will have two premiership matches on "Ford Super Sunday". There is also normally La Liga matches on Saturday and Sunday nights. However there is not as much premiership football as you think, they rarely have a game on Saturday nless it is two of the big four that are playing each other. They also have tennis from the Opens and Golf from the Ryder Cup. They also have the odd international football match too. Oh, and darts. You may debate that it isn't a sport but nearly every evening on a weekday there is some darts as well as cricket on.
My main interest is football and Sky Sports 1 is dominated by it. Be warned though, most matches aren't premiership (Scunthorpe V Blackpool anyone?). If you are only interested in football, Sky Sports is a bit pricey but it is worth the money. The coverage of any event I have ever seen is top-notch and in-depth.
Sky Sports is a great channel for any sports fan, but there is not always the best sporting events on.
Summary: Good channel but check that the events you want to watch are on before you buy.
