I binned Sky off and bought a Humax freesat box - cost £189 but you can get basic ones for £40 if you don;t want HD and recording. The user interface takes a bit of getting used to but it’s quite good. You get all the freeview, plus access to Netflix (if you have an account) and a lot of the other on demand things.
On top of that I have a Now TV stick (£14?) which gives you access to a monthly subscription for Sky Sports, Movies or Entertainment. I just get the ewntertainment at the moment, every time I cancel it they offer me a three month deal for £3 a month. I’ve been doing that for ages now. I treat myself to the movies for the christmas month and binge everything worth watching.
Went to Plusnet for the internet, but to be honest I’m not happy with the Wifi so I’ll be looking for an alternative come October when I’m out of contract. If anyone can suggest a non-Sky internet provider with a good router I’m all ears.
