This is something that has me fuming - when we first moved back to the UK we got Sky, and I used to enjoy being able to watch Football First. If the Everton match was live on Sky, I'd go to the local to watch it, but if it wasn't I'd wait until the evening, without knowing the score, and watch it "as live".
Partly due to a staff discount, we switched to BT Vision and they have had an even better way to watch Premiership games - from 10pm you can watch the *full match* of any Premiership game that wasn't shown live on Sky.
I was on a stag last weekend so today is my first match of the season. I've just double checked to make sure it'll be on an I'm met with a screen saying that On Demand Premier League highlights/full match are no longer available on BT Vision.
I assumed this is part of the tie up with Sky Sports, and an effort to force BT Vision customers to shell out the extra money to buy the Sky Sports 1 or Sky Sports 2 channels. However I've just spent half an hour on the phone speaking to a variety of people, and evidently the interactive red button for Sky does not work through BT Vision. Therefore if you buy the Sky Sports 2 channel you cannot watch Football First.
In summary, I have today learnt that the sole reason for me subscribing to BT Vision has been taken away, and there is now no way to watch Premier League highlights. I was under the impression that regulators had forced Sky Sports to offer their channels to BT, and that this was an increase in options to BT customers. In fact, it's a drastic reduction.
