    I went from over £100 for my sky HD,Multi rooms, Setanta and full package,also ontop my broadband and phone with virgin.
    Switched to Virgin and pay £63.50 for everything.Obviously I dont have all the HD channels but I dont miss them as Virgins V+ upscales the pic.Looks ok to me on my 40"LCD as good as some HD broadcasts.Some people have had hassle with Virgin Customer services but I have not experianced this.Sky are no better at times so its up to you at the end of the day .I heard all the pros and cons and cancelled Sky and never looked back.

    lol Lost should get lost a series thats went on to long, likewise Prison Break, Soccer AM is pathetic now Lovejoy gone.

    Virgin is worth it especially if you pay £99 and get a Dbox for some extra channels Now do THAT with Sky.

    A Coax cable? for a start its fibre optic !

    Oh and you said you pay £58 so does that include the BT line rental you have to pay?

    from Sky's terms and conditions

    1.4 You must have a BT (British Telecommunications plc) compatible line in your home (a telephone line owned by BT). 1.5 You must continue to take line rental from a compatible line rental provider


    .Sky are robbing tw@ts who continue to creep the price up every year, and they keep the line rental really quiet when advertising the deals.
