Sky Cable Will Go Down Hours From Now

Who freaking cares? We want Solar back. Period. πŸ‘Ώ

It is sad to say that the biggest and most expensive cable TV in the Philippines reduced their expenses (again) by not renewing their contract with Solar Entertainment which will automatically pop out the best channels effective January 1, 2008.

The channels that have only few hours to live in every Sky Cable subscriptions (Silver, Gold and Platinum) are:

– Basketball TV πŸ˜₯
NBA (NBA All-Star Weekend and NBA Playoffs)
– Solar Sports πŸ˜₯
Boxing, UFC, NFL (Superbowl) and US NCAA
– JackTV πŸ˜₯
WWE (Wrestlemania and Royal Rumble), South Park and more
– ETC πŸ˜₯
– 2nd Avenue πŸ˜₯
– Crime/Suspense πŸ˜₯
– Home Shopping Network πŸ˜₯

In order for the subscribers to continue their subscription (no way :evil:) , Sky Cable will have new channels to offer starting 2008. There’s no way they’ll going to replace that channels with their second rate, trying hard wannabes.

Luckily, I watched UFC 79 yeterday in Balls, one of the new channels Sky is adding on its lineup to pave way for the big time losses.

I respect Solar Entertainment for they are the proponents of bringing free worldwide Pay-Per-View boxing in the Philippines. I was really disappointed when ABS-CBN and GMA joined the bandwagon through Manny Pacquiao’s fame, leaving Solar with only few boxing bouts to cover. Solar Sports and BTV is the best sports channels for me, with only Star Sports (sometimes ESPN) left for my Formula 1 frenzy.

Speaking of Star Sports, they already tried to remove Star Sports, ESPN and some premium channels a few years back but was returned due to probable subscription losses.

They have repeated it again. Prepare to meet doom again. 😈

  2. I know how you feel, dude. I share with the sentiments of the thousands of sports aficionados who was badly hurt in Sky Cable’s cheap shot. 😈

    Wag ka mag-alala, ibabalik rin nila yan. Nangyari na dati na nawala ang Star Sports at ESPN pero binalik rin nila. πŸ˜‰

  5. SKY CABLE SUCKS! Shame on them to try to give us second rate sports channels. We should all start subscribing to Destiny cable. I heard they still have Basketball TV.

  6. Yup. Destiny has a complete lineup of SOLAR Entertainment.

  7. ey guys! anyone of you na na-digitize na ung area sa upgrading ng skycable? last april 1st it reached our area and its really diaappointing! not only the channels over 61 were lost but the signal has become worse! fu**ing disappointing pa is ung call center nila ang advise samin ay kumuha daw ng digibox and it costs 1500.00! tama ba yun!?!?!? any comment???

  8. Carlo,

    Wala pa kaming ganyan. Sana hindi kami maapektuhan niyan dahil siguradong malulugi ang Sky Cable dahil sa mga ginagawa nila.

    Kung ako sa yo, maghanap ka na ng ibang cable.
