The football season is drawing to a close and I made the call to Sky today to get my account cancelled, it'll all be turning off on May 27th, yay!! I've been a subscriber for a few years now and always had the top package (currently £43.50) but it became apparent that my main reasoning for having it was the football. The movies and other programming are certainly a nice addition but for £43.50 it just burns too many large holes in my pockets. I found Football next year is going to be awkward, Sky will be showing some Premiership games and Setanta will be showing some other Premiership games. I'm never going to get them both so I'd never have managed to catch all the football anyway. Back to good ol' Match of the Day for me and if there is a game I really need to see, I'll just head over to the pub. As for movies, I could sign up for a DVD rental system that'd work out a lot cheaper than Sky and I'd have the added bonus of DVD quality movies. Then there's TV series, I do watch quite a few of them (24, Lost, Heroes, Sopranos etc) but even those will be more accessible. I'll just download them on the PC (probably even in HD which I'd have had to pay £10 extra per month to get on Sky) and stream them to my big screen via the Xbox 360. Anyway! Just thought I'd share with you how strangely satisfying it is to break away from SkyTV. Now, how does that freeview gizmo work?
