    Cannot see me ever returning to BT, left three years ago & not looked back.
    Have full Sky package & never once had to call there help line, unlike BTsport.
    Sit down to watch Moto GP or Prem footy, get error messages. Good luck getting any sense from the help numbers as my dog has more understanding of the system than them.
    2nd that, we had BT for 1 year (5 years ago), it was atrocious and customer service, diabolical and all from somewhere over in India

    My BT subscription is due for renewal soon. It’ll be interesting to see what they come up with. I only have for football.

    That's not quite true, you need to have a TV license if you are watching live TV, i.e. as it's broadcast. You don't need a TV license if you are watching other stuff, i.e. Netflix.

    I know a couple of people who have stopped their TV licnese, and you should see some of the letters they get from the TV licensing people, they really don't like it. They are threaning them almost like the mafia, but there is nothing they can do, as long as they stay within the law they don't need a TV license.

    Although what throws some people you do need a license if you watch *anything* live even if via a streaming service - so if you watch live tennis via Amazon prime = TV license.

    Looks like quite a bit of footy will be free to air if this season stuff has to play out

    Also with comments re now tv, sky etc

    I see droves, and I mean droves leaving sky bb every day
    They’ve really fouled up by saying they can’t talk to people

    The cheapest answer for most is as follows

    Sky tv basic set up (can be negotiated down to about £15 a month)
    BB just but the “best deal” from the comparisons is or MSE headlines - but don’t get caught in anything more than a 12 month deal
    Calls - all inclusive on your mobile package - so in effect free for most

    Netflix or whatever - shared access with family members


    I’m seeing people dumping plusnet like it’s the plague, but it’s each to their own


    All bb runs off bt open reach skeleton unless virgin
    The skin is your provider - that is your choice, and I put that choice down to promised speeds and service

    They’ll always be Ford and againsts, but open reach are now going into properties from Monday

    So for now I have paused my complete Sky sports HD&Q, bill dropped from £78 for everything to £48 from memory, are you saying re negotiate down?

    I was told if you drop to lowest you lose service, where as I still have access to said sports channels?

    I have cancelled my sky Q and it goes off on Monday. I still have Netflix and Amazon, plus I have just bought a T3-R 1TB Freeview recording box and the £200 cost will be recouped in a (sky-free) 3 months.
    After 14 years with sky I am absolutely done with them and BT and Virgin TV have no appeal. So, I will have less TV choice but that is not necessarily a bad thing and that will be sweetened by my trousering the £68 a month I have been paying greedy sky who quite frankly can now ‘do one’!

Asked about the special offer for £34 for the first few months and got told BRAND NEW CUSTOMERS ONLY in almost a shout and then he took our cancellation without even trying to save. Will see if there are better offers next week when a different advisor isn't having such a bad day. Staying with virgin due to speed. Hyperoptic not yet in our postcode.
    Virgin called us today, said we've been a customer for years and and want to keep us...

    £38 for the exact same package no change or £34 without the TV. Went for the option without the TV as we tend to watch iPlayer/Netflix/Prime if watching TV and can't remember the last time we used the Virgin box for at all.

    £15 is just the sky basic package (no sports)

    You’ve already been pulled into HD and Q by the sounds of it

    Just tell them you’re totally leaving
    Just to leave it “on” what would be the price

    You can then add sports when you feel it’s needed if at all

    I’m essentially paying 50p per day to watch channel 415 sky racing which somehow I have

    I’ve never had HD see little difference and hate the Q menu OS so have the older box


    Just tell them it’s too much and don’t be c
    Scared to sack it all off
