Sky can’t see the news

I really should know better than to try watching Sky News, but why are they now insisting on advertising Sky Active permanently on the screen with a full-size caption where the headlines usually go? I can just about understand the need for Dogs, clocks, tickers, slugs and all the rest of it. But with this huge lump residing permanently on the screen it feels like you have tunnel vision. Most of Sky News’ potential audience can’t even access Sky Active!


  1. Yeah, you only get some really slow and clunky text service, none of the other screens (for sport, entertainment, etc) that you get on Sky Digital.
