We used to live in a conservation area and dishes weren't allowed but I still put one up.

Any tree-shagging do-gooding Swampy who wants to try to come between me and my Sky better come tooled up and ready to fight......

My life is flashing before my eyes. I have proper sky at home but freeview at uni. Our uni days usually involved four lads pissing about on laptops playing football manager and watching sky sports news all day. Now what am I going to do?

And risk ending up marrying one?  I don't know what he's done to you Chris, but that's bang out of order.

Im still pissed off I get charged for HD..   why should I pay for a service just to get a decent picture..


Completely agree, and they've deliberately made the standard package broadcast at a lower quality to try and get more HD subscriptions. Disgusting. The only thing they should be charging for is the HD box and cable.

Fork out for proper Sky you bunch of cheapskate moaners


Some people have trouble getting Sky location wise.  I live in a listed building so can't put a dish up and have no cable by me!


I also need to have a BT line fitted which costs 147 then I need to get SKY and I just can't afford it. Im gutted like Paul said I wont miss the transfer window but I will miss Millie clode and Geoff on a saturday

That's awful news, where else can I get breaking news about Gillingham signing a new left back or pictures of Fabio Cappello stood with his arms crossed looking grumpy?
