We’re talking about the full Sky TV or Virgin Media packages here. They can burn crazy money, like over £100 per month.
I’ve had the full packages and I literally watched about 4 channels regularly. Once I cancelled them, I didn’t even notice. My viewing experience didn’t change one little bit.
Many people now solely use internet-based services like NowTV, Netflix, Amazon Prime or YouTube. I pair this up with the apps on my phone and a Google Chromecast to make my mobile phone my new remote control.
You’d be amazed at the people we hear from that are struggling financially yet still feel they can’t cut Sky Sports!
If you love your TV package, then at the very minimum call your provider and renegotiate. There are always deals going and sometimes the savings can be up to 50%.
Stick a date in your calendar and do the same thing again when your contract term is nearly up so you don’t automatically renew without having the chance to negotiate.
Further to this, check out TopCashback to get some money back when signing in to a new deal. I got £90 back for five minutes work when I moved over to TalkTalk.
