    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.

    yeah i thought that was strange too. i thought for a bit maybe they were having problems and it was stuck there…

    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

    I just wonder that if they did show the people in question how far that might contribute to a mistrial – or at least put the chance of a mistrial in question.

    At what point will the frenzy to get pictures start to jeopardise the due process of law

    It was a nothing story,report on what happened in court but no need to show the van taking them back to jail,there must have been something more important to report on than that,all it needed to cap it off in true Sky News over the top style was Kay Burley reporting from a chase car

    Well it’s still there. Maybe if they made the strap even bigger, you wouldn’t need to see the presenters at all and they could save money on make up and wardrobe……….

    Down with that strap.!

    they can really save cash by ditching the channel altogether cos that strap is pushing me onto another channel,its like on sports news,i dont see the point of the blue strap telling u the same info as what the presenters are telling you,use it for breaking news but no need for it all the time
