We binned off Sky several years ago now. The ever increasing price was the main reason. We did not miss it at all as most sports I want to watch are available on the internet on streams, yes there may be a delay of a minute or two, but providing you are not listening to live as broadcast radio coverage you are to all intense and purposes watching it as live. If your internet speed is good enough you can stream it to your TV from your laptop. We got a freesat box after we binned Sky but very quickly switched to Freeview and BT. We founf Freesat lacked a lot of channels that are available on Freeview.

If I get freesat I get pretty much the same number of channels and the ones we watch the most apart from the sport channels.Will the ability to record and series link and pause the programme.
Best thing to do is to cancel and then in a few months they will come back with a really good deal and hopefully I'll be earning a bit more to pay for it and at the moment I really can't afford it, Shona's uniform, birthday and our holiday are more important.

Excellent reasons to dump Sky, mate. They won't pay it all for you, that's for sure!

The freesat boxes I was looking at today had over 200 channels whereas the freeview have around 70. Be easier for us to have a freesat box we don't have an aerial and the indoor ones aint the best.
Got to wait a bit mind we 50 days left on our contract and it's best to cancel in the last 31 days to avoid penalties.

Linfield v Celtic in champions League qualifying, always likely to generate more heat than light, but a bit over the top for Celtic's Griffiths who was pelted with rubbish, including a bottle, when taking a corner....and got booked for time-wasting. Maybe not wise of him to tie a Celtic scarf to a goalpost after the match though. Second leg in Glasgow on Wednesday night.

I am getting lots of hate on twitter this morning from the folk of 'ull. They have not taken kindly to me saying the 'umber bridge is not in 'ull.
