According to Sky 92% of people use the interactive services on their digibox, what is people general opinion?

I used one of the interactive services once to test if the modem was working, and never used it again. The day after my box had been installed for a year, I unplugged the telephone cable and tossed it in a box.

I have no phone line and don't even use the interactive on the football as I lose my widescreen.

The only time I actually do use it is for the Champions League. But for me, that's not interactive. It's stream selection.

Not all of the interactive services involve the use of a telephone connection, in fact most of them don't.

Sky's interpretation of a person using interactive is probably the simple use of the red button on Sky news to see the weather forcast or football results and I'm sure most people have done that at one time or another.

I use it very regularly, mostly for the news options, but it is good during events like the Olympics and Wimbledon to watch the match or contest of your choice.

OK, given that definition I use it a fair amount, but only on the Beeb.

I have to change my mind.....Champions League on Xtra and Football First have made it worthwhile pressing that red button.....
