I came home to a ridiculous Bill from Sky and have just got off the phone to them having cancelled my subscription. I was getting telephone, TV and Broadband, this months bill was 82!!

I know I can save money on the Telephone and Broadband from another supplier, I wondered if anyone can recommend other options to get TV other than freeview?

Thanks K

Do you live in a cable area? You could get Virgin Media.

Unfortunately there's no fibre optic here so Virgin is out. I'll check out the dreambox, thanks for suggestions

Free sat. my tv has free sat built in, all you do is plug the cable from your sky dish into the tv. or just use a freeview box.
Get yourself a good deal on a mobile telephone, for 15 a month you can get calls and texts and internet access on the 3 network.

Its a nuisance when you dont live in a cabled area, you are really reliant on sky and bt, but virgin isnt particularly.cheep these days either, but at least you can have broadband with virgin without having to have a telephone line..

I`d go for the dreambox option but i`d also be careful as i heard they were working around cutting them off, _jase_ your forum moderator can help you on that one as he knows a lot about them.

82 for all 3 services seems reasonable to me depending on your phone package / BB speed etc.......

Im with Virgin and pay 87 per month for XL TV ( Tivo) / Unlimited Landline calls ( although who uses a LL nowadays ) / And 100Mb Broadband ( soon to be 120 Mb in the summer ). Its alot of TV and speed for the money, im assuming your BB would be 20mb for that price.....

Shame your not cabled up mate smile

They are not going off mate. it has been around for such a long time the scene is strong. I have a dish that gets me 0.8 west, 4.8, 7, 9, 10, 13, 15.8,19.2 and 28.2 (sky) all in one. stuffed with an 8 way switch and 2 VU boxes mate. no monthly bills no hassle pay a guy in kosovo 80 quid a year.

job done! if you want any help advice, tips or even installation drop me a PM and i will put you on to the right folks.
