    There are a lot of crap iptv providers out there. There are also some excellent ones. I've always had two on the go so if there is a problem with one I have a back up. Probably a waste as I've never needed a back up. Sky, BT, Bein sports, US sports channels, all 3pm kick offs. Have never missed a Liverpool match. Costs me about 7 euro a month to have both so couldn't justify the huge prices the big providers are charging. Kodi with real debrid gives me every TV show and movie out there too

    Thanks for all the replies to date btw.

    I'd have dumped all PayTV ages ago and just gone with Saorview/Freeview and a couple of friendly apps, were it not for:
    - quality
    - the Mrs. wants to record sh1te regularly
    - F1

    There's no doubt in my mind that Sky are taking the pi$$ and while I've been through the old cut your price or I'm leaving conversation numerous times with Sky, it's always the same old 45 minute conversation followed by a short term (3-9 month) deal. Headwrecker !

    I'm not sure that I would have the intellect or the enthusiasm to switch to iptv or or any of the dodgy providers at this stage. I'm not even sure how much I'm paying for Sky anymore! I did jib Virgin broadband after the takeover so that's some savings I suppose .

    Think it's being phased out gradually, no mention of it going off yet in my area anyway.

    I pay €80 for basic, sports, HD/boxsets, multiroom and 2 Sky go, 1 of which my dad uses for all his sports
    Have the use of BT sports app off someone with Eir Broadband
    I engage in the 6 month bluff all the time but have no intention of cancelling it
    The service always works and herself is happy recording all the TLC shite on her own tv
    Considering changing broadband provider when Virgin contract expires although they are probably the best

    The trickle of stuff like the PGA golf, US Open tennis and couple of European leagues to internet providers could become a massive pain in the hoop though. I was more than happy with it up to the summer

    Never realised TV and broadband had gotten so expensive. I have had mine free for the last 4 years as an ambassador for one of the providers, when new channels are launched I just have say it's working or it isn't.
