A modern day con!
Have you got a 3G phone or one of the newer phones that support HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access)?
Sky by mobile are offering the deal below for just £5 per month which sounds like great value, but the biggest catch with the offer below, is that Sky offer a "Made for mobile" package, which means the channels and shows are repeated on a loop for you to enjoy whenever you want. Doh!, who wants to watch a repeated game of football or a show????
Honestly, there is a better way and it’s not with Sky Mobile…. if you do a bit of research, there is a far better way of viewing your TV (not just sky) and it’s called the SlingBox.
The Slingbox is a TV streaming device that enables consumers to remotely view their cable, satellite, or personal video recorder (PVR) programming from an Internet-enabled computer with a broadband Internet connection, or a 3G or HSDPA mobile phone.

The advantages of the Slingbox are not just limited to watching tv on your mobile phone, because you can watch tv now from your computer or laptop anywhere in th world, as long as you have an internet connection.
So there you have it. why pay Sky £5 a month when for a once off price you can have Slingbox forever and use it anywhere on any device?
