Target: Football fans watching games on Sky Sports
Result:
SUCCESS! The bar has been moved back to the top left! Thanks to everyone who signed this petition or any other, or took direct action and emailed Sky personally.

Petition Background (Preamble):

For the 2007/8 season, Sky have redesigned their on-screen graphics and moved the info bar containing the score and time to the bottom left of the screen, from the top left where all other broadcasters have it.

------------------------------------

SUCCESS! The bar has been moved back to the top left!

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on Sky Sports to move their blue info bar that appears on screen during their televised football games from the new position of the bottom left of the screen and restore it back to the top left of the screen like all other broadcasters.

The new position in the bottom left of the screen means that part of the playing surface and players are being covered up during the game. The bottom left of the screen almost always shows active parts of the pitch, however the previous position in the top left only shows areas of the crowd for 90% of the game and thus can be covered with a non-transparent graphic quite comfortably.

As we pay a large monthly subscription to watch Sky Sports we should not have areas of the game blocked out unnecessarily when the info bar can be positioned quite happily in the top left of the screen.
