I see I'm a little late to the party, I too have been a Sky Angel lifetime subscriber since they first started, on one hand I am disappointed about losing the satellite service but on the other hand I got 10 years for $300.00 so how mad can I be?

My personal opinion is that Sky Angel will never make this new business model fly,
most of these channels offer free streaming over the net anyway and I have serious doubts that this technology will even work plus nearly every channel Sky Angel offers is free on an FTA dish so why not just go that route and get it free?

I have said for years that if I was a monthly Sky Angel subscriber I would cancel and but an FTA dish and get the same programming for free, I guess now I have no choice.

I think that's why they are adding secular content like the football network.
