Are there any legal or 'rights' reasons why we could not get a Sky Sports News feed live 24/7?
On what? Its own channel or on FSW?
Its own channel would be more of a logistical and carriage problem than a legal or rights reason, I would imagine.
A dedicated channel. I know it can be hard to find room; perhaps just a dream that will have to go unfulfilled, but can you imagine how great it would be to check in with Sky anytime day or night?

You could always move to England?
Move to England?
Great football, great beer....
Yes, I think you're on to something!
SKY is available all over europe... it is truly confusing that in this day and age, that the states can not recieve this feed... also, you cant beat the people in europe.. just some of the finest lads~~
Well, there are even better looking sports babes on Sky, although you'll have to go the website to get their pictures.

Yes, there's a stunning brunette whose name escapes me at the moment.
Kirsty Gallacher perhaps?
Stunning is an understatement.
I just wanted to post this picture again because it needs to be seen.
I enjoy Sky Sports News for the perspective it provides US viewers, but the fact it doesn't have same-day rights to the highlights of the Saturday games makes it pretty useless for the one thing you really want it for: highlights of the Saturday games. If I recall, it often doesn't have highlights of England matches, either, for the same reason. Fox Sports Report is thus much preferable in that regard.
Also, 24 hours of rugby and cricket in the summer would be a little much for my tastes.
its amazing to me that cricket is huge in every country but the united states.. well, maybe not every country, but most~
kristy is the product of having a class golfer for a pops.. she must have some mum!
They show almost every goal from the Nationwide on Saturdays.
I think fewer than 10 countries actually have full test cricket sides. It's hardly huge everywhere but the United States.
bloody genius~ hahahahahaha moron~
Here in the US we have baseball to bore us for hours on end.
I agree with you but did you ever try watching Golf ?
Not to drift too far off track, but when ESPN shows fishing I can only assume that "Competitive Sleeping" won't be far behind.
"Today's Sleep match is brought to you by Sleepcomfort, for that perfect night's sleep. From Dothan, Alabama we have Willie Freeman - he's been known to sleep solid for 16 hours straight, but can also snore "Sweet Home Alabama" in a perfect C. From Ottawa, Canada - Bruce Lee, not to be confused with the famed martial arts expert, Bruce is a capable dozer, and whistles songs from Rush, Triumph, and Bryan Adams in his sleep, now let's head to the competition!"
Watching people fish is only steps ahead of watching them sleep.
I am curious about this. Is Sky officially available in other countries in Europe? because I always think you need a U.K./Irish address to subscribe to Sky, a French address to sub to Canal Satellite, a Spanish address to sub to Via Digital, an Italian address to sub to Telepiu, etc.
Or have they allow cross-country subscription within the E.U.? How about subbing Sky not in the E.U., like in Russia?
As far as subbing Sky from Europe, I found this web-site
looks very much like a gray market subscription to me, especially you pay by credit card for a year, and you have to pay 225 pounds for the box. On the other hand, Sky advertises on its web-site that U.K. residents can get the box dirt cheap (the IRD/dish free and 1 pound for installation).
This is very similiar to the scenarios for American residents subbing Canadian DBS, i.e. grey market.
When Rupert Murdoch gets control of DirecTV officially, perhaps Sky News and/or Sky Sports News will be added.
I dream of the the day when we can get all the Sky channels.
If it won't happen with Murdoch controlling, then it never will.
