An example of Sky Sports Active What's digital satellite about?
The brand name of digital satellite is Sky Digital.

This has the most subscribers.

What's good about it?

  • There are hundreds of channels
  • There are lots of interactive services giving extra video eg. Sky Sports Active

What's bad about it?

  • It's expensive if you want all the movie and sports channels: it's about 400 a year
  • It can send a lot of information out, but you can't send much back. So it's difficult for it to be really interactive which means you can't have things like messageboards
