    For UK residents... what tv package to you buy and do you recommend it?

    I have moved home and do not wish to put a sky tv dish on my property. I have fibre optic broadband so can stream. The channels I’m interested in are:

    Sky Atlantic HD
    Sky Sport HD
    BT Sport HD
    BBC, ITV etc in HD

    I’ve read a little about NOWTV but I believe it’s only streamed in 760p.

    Virgin TV doesn’t supply where I am.

    Thanks for any tips, dg.

    Your new surroundings look lovely so why not just walk about and take in the beauty and maybe catch some kids playing football at the local pitch?

    I donno, kids play ball in a field of pitch? That must be where the Brit phrase 'sticky wicket' came from 😉

    Could be though I suspect not because those are two different sports.

    Couldn't you just put it on the back of the property?

    As far as I know , you can only get sky atlantic with a sky dish.I get sky sports and bt sport thro' virgin, but times are changing. Just read in the paper today that people are cancelling their t.v.licence because they only watch Netflix and the like i.e not the bbc.
    Maybe you can get the sports channels via netflix or amazon.I don't know.

    If you watch any TV as it is broadcast, I.e. not recorded and played back, you have to have a TV licence.

    Just don’t want a dish where we are.

    A friend bought me a gadget called a “Raspberry”, which allegedly give access through the net, but I’ve not tried it.

    You could download TV series from torrents and then watch them on your phone.

    BBC iplayer requires a TV license as well.
