Depends on how you do it mate. The boxes are around £80 to buy, and then you can install everything yourself following this sort of guide:

 

 

Then you'd need to buy the 'line'. From what I've read/seen, eBay lines can be a bit flaky, in that the line goes down and the sellers disappear.

 

Or, you can buy one fully set up with the line (subscription) included for about £180 (that's for twin tuners - so you can record). I'm not sure how much this fella charges for the line only but I've been watching this page for quite a few weeks and found them to be quick to respond to any problems people have and very knowledgeable.

I think both those links are from here, somewhere in this thread.

Cheers.  Something I'm defo looking into.

@simonlfcgreen: anyone need cheaper broadband give us a shout

 

 

Shame... I was looking to pay more. Otherwise I would definitely go with Squeasant.net.

Never seen that before but seen their broadband block numetous streaming sites.

 

Nothing to do with nowtv of course, which they advertise on the block page. Wankers.

Maybe sky should lower their prices. It's the same shitty programmes on at the same time day after day after day. Netflix is what 7 quid a month and it's got far more stuff worth watching as time goes on. Sky not only charges you a fortune but then has the cheek to having a fucking sky store and PPV for content that should be part of the original bill. There's only so many episodes of fucking Simpson's, Alaskan bush people and all that bollocks you can stomach. Soon as my cheap sky contract is done that's that.

Anyone still paying for sky sports & BT should be right

on the phone now to give them the 1 months notice to cancel. I've been doing it for years and I currently pay £42 pm and that includes all the sports, movies as well as the LFC channel all in hd. Mines not up for renewal now till September due to them calling my bluff and cancelling it all through the summer but there's fuck all on anyway other than yachting or golf or other shite so I never missed anything of note but they came back to me 3 times last summer and I held out till I got it all for less than 50% off. I'll be right onto them as soon as it's due up to try and get it even cheaper next time as although I've now got kodi, it's a pain in the arse trying to get a decent stream whenever we're on.

Well worth phoning to cancel now tho and if you don't get 50% until the end of next season now, hang on signing back up with them till before next season starts and they'll be throwing deals at you until you get the right one

£26 for 6 months of sportsmania(or other paid options) gives you every Liverpool game. Also have films and tv boxsets on there.£52 a year over £42 a month is a bit of a no brainer in my view.

Well they should be right on the phone to cancel, telling them to fuck off with the laughably extortionate cut price, getting themselves an open box and paying £15 a year for every channel including box office fights.

To be fair that's hardly comparing apples with apples though is it?

 

Big difference in terms of hardware, stability and convenience.

 

I'm not saying that it's not worth doing, just pointing out that there's more to it than that.

Yeah this is why I still pay Sky. I have the basic TV package and normal broadband on a 30% off deal but having a 5-year-old, I need the kids stuff (which is very good on Sky IMO) and I need him to be able to access it himself, which he's only started to learn. The paid sub to a sports site though is a no brainer.

I've got the full package on 30% off. I also have a paid sports sub for the BT games and Saturday 3pms etc. The paid one is fine but not all HD and also not always stable (I couldn't watch the Real v Bayern game the other night for instance).

 

I've got a 6 year old lad and agree with you on the Kids stuff, there's loads of choice and my lad knows how to find everything himself.

 

At the end of the day it all comes down to affordability. I'm lucky in the sense that I can afford it so i'm happy to pay for the convenience.

To be fair, the Sky skins that you get on the Zgemma and Open V8 boxes are damn close to the native Sky menus with the same channel numbers and all that. It's very good.

Mine is the exact same for £15 a year. Unless Murdoch is offering it for £14 a year then it's daft to make that cunt richer.

Yeah not seen Sky Q to be fair. I've got the Sky+ HD one and it's spot on. A few differences, but £90 a month cheaper.

There is a Sky Q build. Have a look on techkings and search for wooshbuild

Gave my notice into Sky last week. Have got a 50% off for 12 months offer sat in my account but tried to get a Sky Q box thrown in for good measure (they are giving them to new customers) but they wouldn't play ball.

Going to wait now until mid May before I take the 50%, see if they come back to me and I can try to get the Sky Q.

    • From offal...   From the official:

      On the replay falling during the club’s Premier League winter break…

      Look, our situation is the following: we have known that for a couple of weeks it is like this. Actually, we knew it a bit longer because it was always clear when we came through into the next round it would be like this. In April 2019, we got a letter from the Premier League where they asked us to respect the winter break, not to organise international friendlies and not to organise competitive games in respect of it. I have said to the boys already, two weeks ago, that we will have a winter break, so it means we will not be there – it will be the kids who play that game because they cannot deal with us like nobody cares about it. I know it is not very popular, but that’s the way I see it and, how I said, the Premier League asked us to respect the winter break and that’s what we do it. If then the FA do not respect it then we cannot change. But we will not be there.

      On whether Neil Critchley will manage the team in the replay…

      Exactly.

      On the importance of his first-team squad getting a rest during the upcoming winter break…

      It’s a winter break and maybe I could find the letter [from the Premier League]: it’s exactly like that, we have to respect it, to respect the players’ welfare and they need a rest – mental rest, physical rest. That’s what the winter break is about and then another competition tells us it’s not that important, so we had to make these decisions before because the boys have family and the international players like Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Gini Wijnaldum, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, all these guys they have never [time] off so this is the week. I said in the moment it was clear there would be a winter break months ago, before I knew the FA Cup could come in between, then we would respect it and we do.

      On how long the first-team squad will be ‘off’...

      One week. They don’t have it ‘off’, they train but for themselves. They have running programmes, they have fitness programmes, that’s all they do. They never have ‘off’ time [but] they don’t come to Melwood and they don’t play football.
    • The new owners will be pleased with all the belly dancers in the Gallowgate
    • Its quarter past 10 in the morning there mate.    Just saying. 
    • I wonder if FA will threaten to or bring action against us if Klopp goes through with this.   Bound to be some caveat about cup replays and then not fielding a competitive team/first team management etc...he is obviously standing up and citing this letter but can't imagine FA will just let it go 
    • Oh, has the rule changed about refs only stopping games for head injuries as well? Could have sworn the ref stopped play because a Shrewsbury player had cramp.
