If there's a PS3/4 in the house you can stream very easily through that otherwise laptop + hdmi cable.

Shouldn't you have asked this before cancelling Sky? And somewhere more sensible than AIBU?
Just watch it on Showbox, anyway.

^ watch it free on here.

Or use someone else's Sky Go subscription ...

Is fox on sky free view?

Get an Android box with Kodi. Sorted.

Sorry, I panicked and stumbled straight into MN whilst simultaneously breathing intona paper bag at the horror of what i'd done. I have been googling and can't figure out how these damn boxes work

I am £60 a month better off tho.

The lady organised for me to have free broadband for a year. So i'm just paying line rental. I also get to keep the record / rewind function on the sky box which is usually £10 a month so im happy with that.

We got rid of virgin media and got a now tv box. It's £7.99 for the entertainment pack and that has Fox tv on it, you can watch live or on catch up. So much better.

ALemonyPea Wed 16-Mar-16 18:13:04

Amazon have Now Tv boxes for £18.99 ATM with 6 months entertainment package for free. Win win. Just works off wifi.

MyFriendGoo52 Wed 16-Mar-16 18:18:18

I literally watch sky 1, fox and atlantic. So long as I have those i'm happy.

Can I record onto the now tv box ??

There are some excellent websites...

MyFriendGoo52 Wed 16-Mar-16 18:25:44

I know that Paulanka......problem is those excellent websites have riddled many an excellent laptop with viruses over the years. 😂😂😂😂😂

Lol I've just done the same, and I've got to binge watch all of series one before they turn my sky tv off!!
I have got netflix and amazon prime though, I'm debating Now TV to complete the 3 streaming services..... ;) Can you get Fox on Now tv? Or Freesat (as i don't have an aerial, only a sky dish) But I'm saving myself a fortune each month even with the streaming services.....

MyFriendGoo52 Wed 16-Mar-16 18:32:40

What's amazon prime like ?? Im liking the look of that. Fox does appear to be on now tv........well it had be.

My palms were sweating after putting the phone down !!

We've just cancelled everything too. We have kodi.

Fluffy24 Wed 16-Mar-16 18:34:27

Did they offer you a hefty discount to stay?

Whether you miss out on anything depends only (pretty much) on how far your morals will stretch with streaming/downloading

coffeetasteslikeshit Wed 16-Mar-16 18:51:34

I've just done the same. We've now got Now TV instead. paid 24.99 for 6 months... that's just over 4 quid a month and I still get walking dead and mad men so I'm happy.

MyFriendGoo52 Wed 16-Mar-16 18:52:15

Not really no.

Tho I am getting phone and internet for £17 a month now. Can't grumble at that.
