    I do I get with the broadband and phone but don't want to look how much it costs as it will scare the life out of me and I am stuck with it until next March. Not worth the money unless you want to watch more Prem football.

    I ditched sky for BT. Not regretting it, mainly because Sky have crap football midweek nowadays and I don't get to watch at the weekend. Internet is way better than I had with Sky too

    It also depends on any other sports you want to watch, Sky have a better all round sports package

    Can you live with yourself depriving this frail old man a few quid? Look at his little face!

    You can pay £10 per month for every single Sports channel in the world, all in HD. Check these guys out on Twitter;
    https://twitter.com/MBOX_HD_IPTV

    You have to PM them & they'll explain what they can offer & set it up.

    Google 'sportsdevil seo michael'. Download, go to system and install from zip, select the file, go to video / add-ons / sportsdevil, choose football and then choose the third link (Desports or summat). That usually works.

    Yeah, annoyingly, Sportsdevil needs an update every few weeks or the links show as dead.

    Yep, lots like this. Phoenix & UK Turks are the same. The only reliable way I have found is to pay sadly, still its a very small price compared to Sky, BT etc & you get absolutely everything in the world including Box Office etc, all in HD.

    Openbox v8s
    80 quid upfront with 2 years support for full Sky tv including box office, boxnation etc
    Cheapest way to watch Sky
    All you need is a Sky dish and internet

    Can't believe you guys slum it by paying for subscription and more ridiculously missing half the game looking for a half decent low rez stream

    How do you stand legally with things like openbox? Aren't you just accessing an illegal stream, albeit made easier and with a better interface.

    There is supposedly going to be a clamp down on buying boxes preloaded.
    http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-37474595
    http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-37508235

    Buying a box or Amazon Fire or whatever without it pre-installed & adding it yourself though would be nigh on impossible to stop;

    The developers behind Kodi have said they do not support "piracy add-ons" and have criticised those who advertise "fully-loaded" set-top boxes for sale.
    The group said it would maintain a "neutral stance on what users do with their own software", but would battle those using the Kodi trademark to sell a "fully-loaded Kodi box".

    How does this work, is it just a case of plug it in and off you go? And what's the quality like?

    We pay £20 per month extra for BT Sport HD on top of our Sky subscription. Costing an arm and a leg - although the alternative is going down the pub and spending £20 on drinks each game. Can't handle these streams, about 5 minutes behind real time and I'm never sure which pixel is the football. Also, for any UFC fan, all fights are on BT as part of the standard package.

    I might look into this Openbox thing though - a friend has something similar and we always go round his for the fights on Sky Box Office/Boxnation.
