We cancelled our sky subscription, mainly due to it costing us nearly £60 a month and there is never anything on. 600 odd channels of rubbish. I think one of my main hobbies was flicking through the channels. I realised I only really watch free view channels. My favourite programmes are TOWIE (The only way is Essex) and The Vampire Diaries, both on ITV2.
I am not bothered by all those channels going, however, no-one told me Sky plus goes with it! I am absolutely gutted, I will now have to watch adverts! I know it is horrendous. I thought if you had the box you would still be able to use it and not have all the channels, but oh no! I am not sure how I am going to survive without Sky plus! Stiff British upper lip...sob, sob!
How ironic I went to publish my blog and there was a google add to join Sky! We did try and call them to see if they would give us a deal if we had our broadband and phone with them. We were then told all deals are for brand new customers only and you have to leave Sky for 1 year before you can get a free this that and the other. To get the full package including all your gubbings Sky would charge us an extra £90 for the privelidge....no thanks!
