    Sick of the crap value for money on Sky, feels like there are fewer watch-worthy games every year. It was decent o the whole when I used to follow Formula 1 and WWE a lot more, but no so my much now.

    Treating myself to a new PC this Christmas which'll make it much user friendly to stream good quality stuff and I'll be done with them forever.

    Indeed. I pay £60 a year and get the same package.

    loads of providers but unless you can find one that streams channels in 50fps there is no point watching it on a TV, still ok for a tablet or laptop mind.

    The problem with IPTV is that it could be shut down at any moment. My cousins have it and it is really good.

    I cancelled sky as well , I had a price of €62 a month for 12 months and never rang up to cancel and €79 came out of my account the Following month. I canceled straightaway after been offered deal after deal.

    2 years on I still haven’t gone back to them I have a now tv box with sports only and when I go to cancel they just give me a discount for next month or sometimes 3 months ( which I take ) I have a dodgy box to watch BT which works perfectly through the sky satellite (€50 every 6 months )

    Guys who are the best/reliable IPTV providers as there seems to be loads all with varying reviews? Didn't think of this before but I'd literally sign up tonight and cancel Sky.

    Most give 2 day trials for a couple of quid, but if you want to watch it on a big TV prepare to be disappointed

    Mobdro is hit and miss. Can get a good stream but then other times it gets stuck.

    BT have definitely stolen a march on them this season with a lot more big games (like Chelsea v City today). Before it always seemed to be big team vs midtable / bottom of the table teams on BT, but whatever packages they got in this new TV deal that started this season has given them a much better selection.

    Sky's value for money has really plummeted in recent years, yet their prices keep going up :rolleyes:

    Sky as a company are much easier to deal with than BT who are a feckin nightmare of buckpassing and poor service.

    That said, the sports package is increasingly unattractive. Champions league, La Liga, Prem Rugby Union and Australian Cricket gone to be replaced by lots of Golf and now Basketball.

    Can't you buy certain channels now? As in just the golf channel by itself? I'd consider that these days if I didn't watch alot of sports, always on in the background instead of normal Tele.
