Sky UK Didn't Make The Right Decision To Indefinitely Scrap The EPG Music, Please Put It To A Vote To See If It Should Be Brought Back

Dear Sky UK, 

As a 33 year-old man with autism, aspergers syndrome & cerebral  palsy, I was rather devastated when on the 1st of January 2018 & after around twenty years the epg (electronic programme guide) background music was finally scrapped for good due to the older standard Sky & Sky+ boxes no longer being updated as the newer Sky+HD & Sky Q boxes are proving much more popular with customers. 

I was always a proud & devoted fan of the epg music, always wanted it changed more often throughout the year & got excited whenever it changed to new Christmas music each December & again to new ordinary music each January. 

Now those exciting days are gone & how sad it now is whenever I look up the epg on the older standard Sky box I still have in my bedroom & it is now completely silent. 

There is only one way in which I am willing to accept the fact that tht epg music has gone for good & that is for Sky to give their customers a vote on whether the epg music returns or not. 

The question should be as follows. 

"Should the epg music be brought back provided that there is also the option of a mini tv screen available?" 

Viewers & customers can vote either YES or NO .

It is indeed a very simple straightforward Yes/No OPTION & I am 100% WILLING to accept the outcome of the vote REGARDLESS of what happens. 

If more people vote YES then Sky will HAVE to respect my wishes & BRING back the epg background music. 

If more people vote NO then I will be finally WILLING to accept that Sky indeed HAVE scrapped the epg music for good & that there will be NO chance of it EVER returning. 

In NO way at ALL should I influence the outcome of the vote, but people WILL vote Yes if they DO accept how passionate I AM about the epg music .

Obviously I will vote YES, but the choice is up to each other individual who VOTES. 

For example, say 1000 people voted, only 499 say YES but a majority of 501 say NO, well I am WILLING to admit defeat & say, well, the viewers have spoken, they don't want the epg music brought back. 

Of ANY means of bringing the music back or scrapping it forever, I firmly believe that a vote is the only way to certainty, clarity, fairness & closure. 

So Sky, WILL you hold that vote?
