Ashes to ashes

This is one for cricket fans to do a collective jig to; Sky Player, Sky's online service that bares more than a passing resemblance to the BBC iPlayer, will be screening the whole of the Ashes live online, meaning slackers like you can watch the whole thing while you're at work, pretending to work.

Best of all, if your already a Sky subscriber, the whole thing will be completely free for the whole of July and August. Result eh? Sky are letting any subscriber have access without making them sign up to Sky Multiroom or Broadband Unlimited.

Even if you're not a subscriber you're quids in, as they've halved the price of the online service, meaning you can watch Sky Sports 1, 2, 3, Xtra and News online for only £17 a month, and because it's one-month minimum term contract, you can get rid at the end of August, so the whole lot costs you less than 40 quid.
