    We have the full Sky bundle and still struggle for something worth watching, most of it has been repeated apart from the news and sport. I don't see anything tempting in this new list.

    I looked in here out of curiosity - still no ABC1 then

    Those 6 are dire rubbish - I can't see who would watch them!

    You want to get ABC1 now that is a good new channel :thumbsup:

    makes you wonder why you bother forkin' out the 40 quid a month eh?

    many is the time i've flicked through every channel and can't find a damm thing i really want to watch!! it's always a case of picking the best of a bad lot!!

    i like my sports tho' and it's not worth dropping thew movies from the package, you only save about 6 quid, and i watch probably 3-4 a month on average, so it's still cheaper than renting 'em out.

    ain't life a beech sometimes!! :thumbsdow

    So why do it? I'm ex-sky, now on Blockbuster DVD unlimited. 14 quid a month for all the new DVDs I can watch, more or less. Works out with the postage time at about 3 per week. But that's a lot more than you'd get on sky movies where you do not get 12 new movies per month.

    You shouldn't knock the shopping channels - they provide a valuable service for both the housebound with I.Qs of less than 25 and out-of-work actors. :D
