Maybe if Ste was stuck in for 24 hours a day he’d be glad of any method of viewing rip off or otherwise not everyone of a certain age is savvy with todays technology. I’ll be happy in another 2 weeks to get my Sky upgrade & money well spent in my opinion . Of course I could always waste it down the Pub or maybe buy a season ticket to watch some stupid men kicking a ball around .

Yes, you can watch live football on free IPTV but it is unreliable. Paid for services are a lot better.

Paying for Sky isn't too bad if you don't watch sport. My brother pays for it with the sports package, and pays over £80 a month, and this doesn't include, BT Sport. Not many people can afford that.

For some the TV is their only source of entertainment, so they are paying for something that gives them pleasure, the same as some people smoke or drink or gamble or follow any number of hobbies.

I suspect, Ste means that he gets it for free or at very little cost with IPTV.
You have to admit, Sky is a rip-off.
Another thing, because Netflix has got so popular, it has spawned a load of other streaming sevices like Disney, Amazon and Britbox, to name just a few. Having so many competing services will eventually dilute the content. IMO, so much so, youtube will rival them, and that is free.


I do not watch it, I watch Netflix and YouTube that's it.
Or we buy films, they're that cheap these days I just don't understand people paying stupid amounts for sky or virgin.

Thanks Mike for confirming what I thought and clearly this all comes down to what each individual is prepared to pay for what they enjoy.

£25 a month isn't too bad.
I love watching football and F1, so they have me, and many others over a barrel.

How much is a single football match worth, for a number of teams it must be way above the three million pounds a match in wages alone.

Klopp (as good as he is) earns over £40,000 each and every day.

It is a consumer market gone totally mad.

Web browser sites are a pain in the arse and just attack your device with tons of malware/adware/spyware.
