"Sky paid for us to see it a week early"

No, Sky's paying customers and advertisers paid for it.

I cancelled my Sky subscription last month. I could no longer stand the adverts or the repeats. Six or seven minutes into a program the ads start, 40 minute programs are placed in a 60 minute slot to allow for 20 minutes of ads, drove me crazy.......... just as you get interested in a documentary, it breaks to run LV insurance or that bloody Churchill dog. As for the repeats, I could play a number of parts (without rehearsal) in programs like Friends, Scrubs, MASH, etc. Free at last................

The Friends Network (formally E4 and E4+1) is available on Freeview, so canceling your Sky subscription is no guarantee that you'll be able to avoid it...

I took my Sky sub on, on top of already having Virgin in as I prefer Sky's service.

I pay £30 for Virgin BB, med Phone and XL TV and £21 to Sky. To me it's well worth the money. Virgin TV is now up stairs and Sky in the living room.

alan14 I do not watch any channels belonging to 4 as their broadcasting standards are the worst and they pretty much scrape the barrel.

Channel 4 news is very good, and I'm hooked on Come Dine With Me on More 4. Film 4 has some good films on as well.

You really shouldn't judge a whole channel based on Big Brother.

What I can't understand is why Sky have some many adverts when you have to pay to receive the channels in the first place...

Why? It's the amount of money they pour into Premier League and such. They actually made a loss this year see click here

I got rid of my telly 3 years ago, saved a fortune & I don't even miss it.

Record the program and fast forward through the adverts, or if you have a pvr set that to record start watching 20 mins late and fast forward the adverts. Finishing the program at the normal time

"I got rid of my telly.....saved a fortune"

How did you save a fortune?

  interzone55 20:20 06 Aug 2008

At least three years of no licence fee for a start I would think. That's the best part of £400. Then if g0nvs previously had Sky or cable that's at least £20 a month saved as well...
