It only seems like yesterday that Alastair Cook and the England cricket team held aloft the coveted Ashes trophy but already, England are back Down Under in Australia with the Ashes First Test already off the mark at the Gabba, with coverage live on Sky Sports.
With the England bowling attack looking to be lead by a fired up Stuart Broad who thrives off the hostile partisan Aussie crowd; he looks to be in fine form already taking a five-wicket haul on day one!
No cricket test series quite gets the adrenaline flowing like the Ashes, with the England and Australian teams both wanting to win this one more than any other series; mostly to gain bragging rights and a dose of ego boosting. Nevertheless, even lesser cricket fans will be glued to this one as England aim to retain the trophy and return home victorious once again. Make sure you tune into Sky Sports to catch every over!
Sky adds more Premier League games to December’s line-up!
If the cricket wasn’t enough for you, Sky have added 16 pretty tasty looking Premier League football fixtures over the festive period. Top teams including Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur all feature in their selections, including Arsenal v Everton, Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool, Arsenal v Chelsea and Chelsea v Liverpool.
With the race for the top four and even the Premier League title looking as wide open as ever this season, these Christmas and New Year fixtures could really shape the season and give us a real insight into who might be the frontrunners come the run in next Spring.
Movie buffs will love the Premieres showing very soon
late November and December delivers some really great movies on Sky. Kids will love “The Elf That Rescued Christmas” first showing this coming Friday 29 November. For the slightly older and wiser of us, This Is 40 delivers a great look on middle aged life crises in this laugh out loud comedy that every walk of life can relate to, also showing next week.
Closer to the festive period, Arthur Christmas starts on 6 December; a cute animated movie about how Santa inadvertently overlooks one small child on Christmas Eve leaving his accident-prone son Arthur to step into the breach and deliver that last essential gift.
If dumb comedies are your thing, then look no further than Identity Thief first showing on Friday 13 December. It was pretty slated by the critics as a ‘rotten tomato’ but if you’re looking for a movie that delivers some downright stupidity, a large dose of predictability and a few chuckles in between, then this is a good fit for you. Expect nothing and it will over deliver is what we say!
And finally, special effects junkies will be pleased with the Christmas Day offering of Iron Man 3. In this third instalment of Robert Downey Jr’s action packed heavy metal crime fighter, he gets fully retooled in a blockbuster that’s both fun and frantic with some pretty impressive special effect scenes to boot!
So sit back and enjoy the festivities!
Sky have pretty much everyone covered this Christmas. The kids, the adults, the sports fanatics and the romantics. So whatever your tastes, make sure you tune into Sky or speak to our customer sales team if you need a Sky system delivered to your door in Europe in time to enjoy all of this great entertainment, in all it’s glory!
