What was conspicuous by its absence throughout Sky's live coverage of Liverpool v Tottenham? Any mention of the parallel drama developing at Villa Park. No infobar, no updates, despite the Villa v Blackburn game in the Carling Cup turning into a 10-goal thriller. So far as the Sky viewers were aware, there was nothing to report.
This of course was the result of the Villa game being shown on the BBC. Sky were not going to publicise the offering of a rival channel, especially when the goals were flying in.
Gives the term "info bar" a whole new meaning really, doesn't it?
