We are moving into a new house, we need tv/internet ect. He's refusing to have sky because "the dish looks awful and it looks like a council house" ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

He won't even discus the idea, because he also thinks I won't have time to watch tv, you know being a sahm to three!

Yeah he sounds like a knob

TheSpottedZebra Tue 22-Mar-16 19:43:32

Get it yourself?
Get Nowtv and don't tell him?

I'd have the fucker mounted on a sky dish and call it conceptual art. Not at all council house and there you go two problems solved at once...

Chocolatteaddict1 Tue 22-Mar-16 19:43:59

Does he always get you to STFU with stuff?

Yeah he wants nowtv. Virgin isn't an option because they haven't fitted the cables yet

Shannaratiger Tue 22-Mar-16 19:45:34

Just get it.

HermioneJeanGranger Tue 22-Mar-16 19:45:54

He does realise NowTV is run by SKY, yes?

Sanchar Tue 22-Mar-16 19:45:54

Why does he get to veto it??!?

I would be telling him to shove it and that he doesn't have to watch it.

We don't have TV/sky anymore, just Netflix, but cbeebies saved my sanity when mine were toddlers.

The next time you're at home and he's at work just order it. Job done. He's hardly likely to rip it down is he?

CrazyMary Tue 22-Mar-16 19:46:15

Ltb??? hmmwinkgrin
Can you get it anyway. He doesn't have to watch it since he is being a twat

Pico2 Tue 22-Mar-16 19:46:47

That's a bad reason. But isn't Sky really expensive?

Floggingmolly Tue 22-Mar-16 19:46:59

You can't see ours from the front...

Fannyfannakerpants Tue 22-Mar-16 19:47:21

Talk talk? You can get it through broadband and it has sky and you can log on to now tv and netflix.

glenthebattleostrich Tue 22-Mar-16 19:47:31

I live on a very naice development with zero social housing. Most houses have sky. The council estate across the road , most have sky.

We all just like good telly. Your h is being an arse

ElderlyKoreanLady Tue 22-Mar-16 19:48:18

Is he always that snobby?

HooseRice Tue 22-Mar-16 19:48:27

Friend of mine's DH used the same reason not to have a trampoline for their young DDs. He's a twat too.

Pinkheart5915 Tue 22-Mar-16 19:48:28

I do agree with him that the dish doesn't look fantastic, I don't know if that would stop me.
Do you have to have a dish with sky?
I have virgin for cable tv and Internet and don't need to have a dish.

voodoolooloo Tue 22-Mar-16 19:48:29

Nail him to the wall and charge people to come and throw stuff at him. Maybe if you stuck an aerial up his arse you'd get the sky channels for free?! grin
Too council. What a twat!

Stratter5 Tue 22-Mar-16 19:48:48

My dish is at the back of the house, depends which way your house faces.

He is being ridiculous. Laughably ridiculous. Just order it, and tell him it's non negotiable

ThroughThickAndThin01 Tue 22-Mar-16 19:48:57

He's definitely a Lower Middle with that attitude.

Tell him all the Middle Middles and Upper Middles have Sky.

How can you have bbqs with friends to watch The Ashes if you don't have Sky?

mummylila Tue 22-Mar-16 19:49:50


To be fair tho sky is rubbish, I go to bed at 9pm a lot because there's nothing on it worth watching

voodoolooloo Tue 22-Mar-16 19:50:19

Oh and yeah. My house is in a very leafy ( as in many trees not particularly posh) area. My dish is on a six foot pole at the top of my back garden. Now^ that's^ what I call council house, and yeah it is grin
