So far we have not had sky tv.
Dh suggested we get the family bundle but I think we have more than enough as have free view,love film and get some movies from blinkbox.Plus I feel that Dc aged 15 & 9 watch enough tv.Are we missing out on some fab viewing or not?
What do you think?

We have to have out add reception is so poor without it <don't get me started on that!>

Anyway, we get the broad band, telephone and Telly package and saved 25 quid a month rather than paying separately.

We have never wanted Sky. We have loads of stuff that we have recorded and haven't had time to watch (we love crime drama). We don't need Sky and find the number of channels we already have access to is more than sufficient.

couldn't make the sky salesman understand that I wasn't bothered! I have a recordable freeview box and struggle to find time to watch the things I have recorded. My ds is into f1 and all sports, if we had sky me and dd would not get a look in. Told the salesman kids watch enough telly as it is and that I wasn't bothered. He said I could record all my soaps and never miss an episode. Told him I don't watch soaps. He said there will always be something to watch, said I don't mind reading a book if there is nothing on. He gave up and left!

We got rid of Sky 8 months ago after having for more than 10 years, we just couldn't afford it any more. My dad bought us a FreeSat box for Christmas and I can say I really don't miss Sky at all. The one thing I missed before getting the FreeSat box was being able to record and the kids like to be able to pause the TV, but now we've got the box it's like having Sky without the cost. Although I do cheat a little as I download the programmes I like that are on the Sky channels, usually when they first come out in the US so get to watch them before Sky anyway.

When i lived at home we never had sky, so i wasnt bothered when i moved out. My boyfriend wanted it for the sport and movies so we looked into it and its so bloody expensive! We ended up getting netflix instead which we use so much, and if there is any major sport thing on he tends to go to his mates house/pub and make a night of it. And i dont have to suffer it! Bonus!

Don't have sky, don't want sky. Have you view so can do all the digital recording, pausing live telly etc stuff.
I hate that some people who have it imply that if you don't have it, it is because you can't afford it. We could easily afford it, but DON'T WANT IT!!! How is it that some people just can't understand that other people might not want the same things as them?

Sigh.

Never had it, never wanted it. My parents have it so have channel surfed to see what we're missing....still don't want it.
