I can only report the facts as exist on Azura right now. Sky News was replaced by BBC HD three days ago. We have been in Madeira all day and still no Sky News.

Representations were made to Reception for an explanation. This was elevated to the Communications Department and an Officer provided an explanation that Sky News would no longer be shown fleetwide on P&O. It had been replaced with BBC HD with immediate effect.

Surely P&O Officers have more integrity than to fob off a passenger enquiry with an intentional lie?

And for the record Dai, are you accusing me of intentionally misleading this forum? Yes or no would be fine, thanks.
Just left Azura on Friday after a 12 nighter and had both BBC HD and Sky News working fine etc...

Just off Britannia and we had BBC HD which was useless as there was no schedule and if you happened to catch one episode of a drama, you didn't really know when the next one would pop up. On ITV there seemed to be mainly quizzes. We also had BBC World - more magazine than news, Sky News (VG and kept us up t date with election results and the fire tragedy) and Sky Sports news. We also had a Sport 24 and something else I can't remember.
