My subscription with just Sky Sports and a couple of the cheaper bundles like Discovery etc crept up to £50 and other than the rugby I wasn't watching anything, knocked it on the head, just have Premier Sports now that I picked up for something like £40 for the year thanks to a promo code advertised on here.

Don't miss it if I'm honest, got access to more games than I can find time to watch and anything big domestically I can either pay to go watch or go down the pub.

That's correct. My last house already had a sky dish installed, so I got a box from freecycle and a card from PS.

 

Couldn't record though without a sky subscription

 

My mum had a Sky+ box she used just for the free channels, and I rang Sky to ask about using the record facitily, and apparently they charge £10 a Month (probably gone up now) if you want to use Sky+ but don't want to subscribe to any channels. Suffice to say, she didn't bother with it.

Sky price rise?

 

How many of you on here do the lottery?

 

Did you know in September the Lotto will double in price to £2 a go?

 

Just because Camelot are not making enough profit.

The prize and profit proportions aren't changing though are they?  If you can't afford to pay £2 for a ticket then you've lost nowt by the price going up.  If you normally put £1 on the lottery but can't afford £2 then I'm fairly confident in saying that you probably can't really afford the £1 either...

 

It's comparing chalk and cheese anyway, one is a value-added service that you pay for to get a fixed benefit, the other is a massively long-shot for a payout but more likely just a way to part you from your money.  The only thing they have in common is that if you don't like the price increases then your life won't end if you decide to abstain and you'll end up with extra money in your pocket.  A very first world problem.


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

i can't believe they haven't kicked the F1 channel in touch yet the viewing figures are horrendous.


What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

Out of interest what are they?
