    What is the story with the strap about the Glitter verdict in full at the bottom of the screen. So what! It’s irritated me so much, i’ve turned to News 24.

    It’s a big and quite entertaining story (in the smug grin being wiped off his face) so they’re obviously plugging the full verdict replay on the active service.

    Remember, Sky News isn’t supposed to be watched continuously – it’s a news service that members of the general public (i.e. not enthusiasts) dip in and out of.

    True, but those dippers i suspect won’t have the interest as us enthusiasts anyway in the story to analyse some boring court script.

    It’s not a court script – it’s the actual footage of the verdict being read out and Glitter’s reaction.

    i agree about the point that it’s there so when people dip into sky news they will see it, and while the strap has been annoying, my main gripe is the fact that i have sky news on both freeview (my tv card), and telewest, and on neither can i use the active service.

    freeview i can accept but from my understanding sky have given telewest the rights to the red button service, they just haven’t implemented it yet. (according to sky). however when i contacted telewest, this was before i emailed sky, they said sky dont allow them to use it… :S

    I agree. It’s a little too much all day.

    I do prefer the red version.

    each time you think it’s finally gone, it pops back again. it’s like the hiccups.

    Its really annoying and distracting being up all the time. I hope its not a permanent fixture.

    Sky news obviously thinks it has to many viewers as they are doing a good job of getting rid of some with that stuck on screen all the time.And the other day all we got was the van load of robbers going up n down the A2 to court and back,why they thought that was so vitaly important that we had to watch it all the time,not like we actually saw the people in question
