Just checked now and wala na din sa plan 999 namin yung Fox Sports HD. Gusto ata ng Sky yung sarili nilang Sports+Action nalang matira eh.

Ang alam ko hindi talaga kasama sa dual def plans ang fox sports hd, inopen lang nila un last year dahil nawala ang nba premium... so kung baga parang free viewing lang yan..

Kailan nangyari ito? Kasi hindi ko yan napansin, nanonood ako ng World Cup sa Liga HD. Anyway I think there is a error on on adding Fox Sports HD due to accidental technical difficulties.

badtrip ako diyan, biglang nawala nung Saturday yung Fox Sports HD eh diyan pa naman ako nanonood ng F1 at MotoGP.pag nainis ako baka lumipat na lang ako ng ibang provider,nakakabdtrip yung biglang nawawala yunbg channel sa lineup eh kaya nga yun ang kinuha kong plan 2 years ago dahil available yung HD tapos biglang aalisin. gusto ata mag upgrade or idagdag ko yung channel para additional fee.

I just recently inquire about that fox sports hd, ang sagot nila sakin fox sports hd its not included in dual def plans 549 or 999. Ala carte lang sya pede daw..( fox sports hd pack). i ask two csr nila and pareho sila ng sagot...

I checked din ung website nila and fox sports hd is not included in dual def plans..
So i guess medyo pinatikim lang tayo ng free viewing nila nun...

Dyan lamang ang cignal subscriber, dami nila sports channel..
Plan 690 meron na sila pba rush, hyper (ufc), nba premium, fox sports1, fox sports 2, all of them are in hd ( too bad all of these 5 hd channels wala ang sky).

Dual def 999 has Fox Sports and Fox Sports 2 in SD format but still widescreen. Are you now content on what you have? Still Sky has World cup just around the corner. Cignal, not so.

Sky Cable plans are soooooo confusing.

I got their broadband plan with HD channels (purportedly for free) included. However, I need to pay additional for me to receive the movie channels, fox and warner TV.

I have both of these subscription( cignal and skycable in different house)
Thats why i could compare it..
And all i can say its still on whats your preference...

If you are really into sports i suggest talaga you go with cignal...
But if you want variety show you go with skycable..

Plan 549 subscriber here,  wala talaga sa channel line-up ang Fox Sports HD kaya thank you nalang at nagkaruon ng free viewing for a while (dahil maraming reklamo nawala ang NBA premium), sayang dahil duon ako nanunuod ng GrandSlam tennis etc

Im also a dual subscriber. Sky is getting to be a ripoff. They suck now, especially for sports fans. Unless you like variety shows as you said.

Im definitely downgrading sky and upgrading my cignal.

7.2 sounds awesome

Many pay tv companies around the world is taking off some of your favorite channels due to carrier disputes over the cost of operation and the surge of OTT media on the internet.
Here is just the sample:
 -SkyCable pull out 4 channels from FOX Networks Group last Dec. 31, 2017
   -FOX Action Movies
   - Fox Crime
   - Nat Geo People
   - Channel V (For Destiny Cable only)
Amazingly they gonna continue operating other FNG channels like Fox, Fox Life, Fox Movies, Nat Geo, Fox Sports, etc... On Sky. Maybe it has to do with the Disney Fox Merger that is still need an approval form the shareholders.
But while Sky continue to offer Fox content, other Pay TV service didn't get so lucky.

Singapore Cable Tv company Starhub recently pullout 11 channels from Discovery Channels due to carrier dispute. It will be in two batches.

The first is already ceased it broadcasts last June 30
 -Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC, Discovery Asia, Discovery Science, Eurosport and Setanta Sports
The second batch will be ceased on August 31. It will consist of recently bought Lifestyle channels from Scripps internactive.
 -HGTV, Food Network, AFC and Travel Channel.

What is the difference between Sky Pulling out four channels from FNG but saved other channels owned by FNG compared to Starhub pulling out all Discovery channels property? And which channels do you think Sky will pullout by the end of the year?

Could we already inlcude na hindi na babalik ang nba premium sa skycable? Or if ever babalik pa hindi na under sya ng solar...

Kasi last year sabi nila its still under negotiation, then from time to time nagbibigay sila ng update.. but now as in news blackout na sila sa issue na yan, then if ever tanungin mo sila ang parati nila pang counter na sagot, just subsrcibe to nba league pass...
Bat di nalang nila tayo diretsuhin na pull out na ung channel na ito just what happen to fox network group like fox action movies, nat geo people and so forth... para hindi na tayo umasa pa...

Kung nasa korte na yung dispute between Solar and ABS regarding NBA carriage, matagal pa yan. And since Solar has started marketing his digital TV box easyTV that carries his NBA channels here in metro Manila, Solar is pinning their hopes people hooked to sky will avail of this product to enable the reception of Basketball TV and NBA Premium Channel over the air. (at an annual fee of P990 straight to Solar, not thru Sky)

According to my sources, these boxes will be deployed within a few weeks to new HD installs.
It has internal storage for recording, can run Netflix and YouTube either thru sky broadband or thru wifi  connection to third party broadband provider. Remote control app can be installed on smart phones to act as 2nd remote. No word though if it can play out files from external source connected to the USB port.

Courtesy online goes a long way.

My understanding is that this will be deployed to new subs only (hopefully initially). I would presume that the recurring fees shall cover what needs to be covered including the box lease. The box (like all other sky boxes) remain the property of sky.

Anyone having issues with Liga HD channel? Everytime I watch a rematch of the FIFA game the video keeps on cutting out. The issue doesn’t happen to other HD channels

I do too - intermittent cutting out of signal on Liga HD channel during World Cup live coverage. Doesn't happen during replays or other programs, must be the satellite signal.

Downgraded from plan 999 to 299 since subscribing to Netflix. Not really feeling the effects except for my folks lol. Di pa kasi smart tv ang Samsung nila. Might upgrade to 549 next month.

Skycable used to have the best sports and news lineup, particularly after they bought out Destiny. 

They don't seem to understand that the only way cable can survive in the era of streaming is on broadcasting live events, like sports and news. Niche programming also contributes but the biggest draw in the past, movies and tv shows, are no longer the draw today.

SkyCable's decision makers need to get their business model out of the 90's.
