depends what you want - movies? boxset?

look at Now TV - Netflix - Amazon Prime

or do what we do - find friends and family in the same situation and share all three of above - one pays for one service but share the logins !

I wouldn't bother with virgin, their TV service never works as it should, showing up errors and faults. Their customer service is soon poor it's unbelievable, no one takes ownership of problems you the customer encounter and you get treated like your bothering them. As some one else mentioned, wait a month and sky will start sending you 60% off codes.

Best suggestion. Cut the cord. Though prime video is only available to the main account holder if I'm not mistaken. But the sharing of now TV and netflix is the way alot of people are now going.

Lol. Ive tried them all legal and not. If you like live sport etc and the widest choice NOTHING compares to sky. I wish it did as im tight as a ducks hoop but it doesnt lol.

Phone theem and tell them times are hard and your lookin to cut den on outgoings theyll give you a good deal. Been doing it for years it always works

Freeview and Kodi for your live sport and Films/US TV. Obviously Kodi isn't faultless and more often than not live sport streams are glitchy, but in my eyes it beats paying dozens of pounds per month.

Your comment on prime is the first I've heard. How much is prime a month. How many people can share the account and use simultaneously watch prime at the same time?

I have Freesat for terrestrial TV just use your existing feed from Sky satellite and you can still record and pause live TV. I also have Amazon Prime and share my Netflix. I left Sky about 3-4 years ago and never looked back.

If your line is fast enough for BT Infinity then BT TV is an option, cheap enough and the Youview boxes support Netflix.
