leslie rainer:
You could buy a Freeview set top box and connect it to your TV. You would then have both Freeview and Freesat. Personally, the only channels not on free satellite TV that matter to me are Yesterday and Drama.

@mrnonsense - almost none. I think BT Sports whole funding model is based on encouraging people to sign up for BT Broadband. In fact, I can't see how to subscribe without also getting either BT's awful broadband service or one of Sky's awful television receivers. I'm surprised this forced bundling hasn't attracted regulators' attention yet. I guess they're just so desperate to have some other subscription service besides Sky.
