I think this is the way I might go. I watch a bit of golf and cricket, and old episodes of The Bill (which I can mostly get online) and Gladiators. Apart from that, it's mostly background noise.

I'd probably add Now TV to that if you want a (legal) sport fix.

If you're on an EE contract you can also access the BT Sport app. The first 3 months are free, 5;a month after that. Not sure it can be Chromecast though.

That includes Movies/Box Sets/Sports channels all in HD, Unlimited reliable Broadband.

Its a good deal compared to the full price they were originally going to charge. Break it down as much as you want. Works out 15 a week for all of that. Costs nearly that to watch a film at the Cinema these days.

Each to their own I guess. Paying the ticket prices at Palace are a lot as well, yet we still do it.
Spend well over a 100 for train and ticket plus drinks etc for an away game up North.
If you want to do it do it. If you don't, then don't. Same principle.

Seriously considering ditching Sky too. I very rarely watch anything on it bar a couple of shows on Atlantic. Gonna get Amazon Prime and maybe Now. Should be cheaper.

Mines 45 per month for unlimited fibre optic plus all the sports channels (not BT). Seems reasonable value as I watch the Sunday matches most weekends. Internet alone would cost half of that amount so I'm happy paying an extra 20 per month for the sports channels.

I've Netflix, Now TV, and Amazon Prime all for less than 20 a month.
It's a no brainer.

Which is fine. Anyone spending getting on towards 100 a month for home entertainments/coms packages is beyond my comprehension. Do they burn fivers for a hobby? Are they permanently secured to an armchair in front of a tv screen?

True, if you're paying that amount.

I'm just amazed that anyone pays the advertised price for sky.

But it's perfect for anyone who only watches Palace and uses Kodi for sport.

Sky are now offering customers a loyalty scheme. Guess they're feeling the pinch with customer churn.

Can't see this stopping many people leaving though. It's all about price for most leavers, surely.

But how do you negotiate them down?

I tried this, but they said take it or leave it at 52.50 :-/

If they did everything I want for 29 per month as another poster says they get I would pay it.
