I'm currently "in negotiations" with NTL as I'm considering leaving them and they want me to stay. The NTL digital service is actually pretty good. The premium channels are the same as Sky, but you don't seem to get Sports Interactive where you can change angles and focus on players etc. The basic channels are similar wih one or two channels exclusive to either Sky or Cable. If you live in certain areas then you can get high speed broadband internet via NTL Digital (for an extra £25/month). If you're gonna stay with NTL (and I'm not yet convinced Sky Digital is better) then I'd go to digital - more channels and better picture, together with onscreen prog guide etc.
