re Contract.<br />I honestly don't know but maybe a call to your local CAB will prove helpful. You also had the option of cancelling the DD from your bank/bs after 12 payments had been collected. As for the rest, SKY is only responsible for their own channels when it comes to compression. Granted they could put pressure on 3rd party channels but at the end of the day it's out of their hands. A good installation should give you excellent signal quality/strength which will handle all but the extreme weather conditions and anything less points to a bodged install.<br />While it sounds like a good idea just to pay for the channels you want in practice it means much higher subscription costs and many channels(some you like)going under due to a drop in revenue.
