Though, I quit my 12month sky contract after 6months and they said they were charging me £190, I haven't been charged and it's been 6months since

Have you considered some on demand services like netflix/lovefilm instant and getting a freeview+ box. Probably cheaper than both options.

We cut the cord about 3 years ago and have not looked back. We took 12months to ween off sky and found it was a rather natural progression anyway as we stopped turning it on save for watching stuff we'd recorded to watch later.

Yes we don't get the latest in TV shows, but then again, what am I missing that I wont enjoy just as much in 12months time? If anything it's more enjoyable as instead of, 'oh look the season finale, time to wait 8months for the next episode', it's a case of, 'do we have time for another episode from the next season before bed'.

It's also nice because there are so many great shows that have finished fully that we've been able to watch in order, from premier to finale without any unnecessary gaps that mean you forget key plot points.

Obviously this is not for everyone as if you have to watch the latest episode of something it's a bit harder to do legally. However, if you are patient and willing to find some alternatives to tide you over in the mean time it's much much cheaper. Plus there is very little that is not aired in the UK on freeview within a short time of it being first aired on the premium channels.

Good points, our only problem is we get limited freeview channels out in the sticks. Don't even get itv4 which i like for the motorbike racing

Thus my suggestion of a mix of the 2 (freeview box for what you do get and streaming for what you can't as easily get) as it works surprisingly well. Get a cheap media playback device that can do iplayer, itv player etc and you should be fairly well sorted as I understand ITV4 is simulcast on ITV player throughout the stations airing.

It's also fairly easy to get around the recording issue for the online players with a bit of googling.
