[access-uk] Re: Sky Plus

well sky seem to want to just screw people for money so i guess the text message charge is a way to screw you over and to be honest if the recording feature is not accessible on the screenreader site i would report sky to someone not sure who as they are not committed to their accessibility as promised

Steve, I'm afraid I'd have to say "so what", to your comparison with the
rental of a DVD. We're not talking about renting DVD's, now are we?

Our sighted friends don't have to pay an extra £0.25 or £0.37 to make
recordings appear on their Sky box. Why on earth should Martin have to
accept the text charges and get on with it?

Surely his requests and views are worthy of a little more than a sarcastic
putdown?

| Hi Martin,
|
| 3.70 for 10 programmes? Wow, it costs at least 4.99 to rent one DVD.
|
| By the way, if your phone company are charging you 12p over the top of the | 25p Sky costs, you're with the wrong company. My Tmobile texts are 25p
and
| no more.
|
| All the best
|
| Steve

actually

the
| format to send the message in and of course providing you don't mind
wearing

| When I'm at home I always use the manual record method it works everytime | and if fast, if you want to know step by step instructions write to me off
