    Default Apart from Sport, what you do watch on Sky?

    I'm thinking of cancelling my Sky subscription, because I don't watch sport, plus I've seen every episode of Star Trek, Stargate, Simpsons, Futurama and Malcolm. As for movies, I have hundreds of DVDs and have rarely seen a movie on Sky that I haven't seen already.

    So what gems will I be missing if I cancel and go to FreeSat / FreeView ?

    Not a lot other than those you've mentioned. Don't you watch any films? If you're lucky and live in the right area you might get Film4 which is a superb channel but that's about all.

    I watch many films, but usually on DVD or downloaded.

    Agree about Film4, and it's available on Freeview and FreeSat

    We've only just got Film4 because we've got a new TV with integrated freeview but the reception is so broken it's unwatchable so it does depend on where you are. Freesat can be good but you still need a satellite dish (and we can't have one because our block of flats has banned them for some reason).

    All good reasons to ditch sky completely.
