trig42: I am trying to convince the housemate that we no longer need Sky.
We have MySky + Multiroom plus sports, so about $100 ish a month I suppose.

I do like the mySky, it just works and gives no problems. I would miss that.
I cannot remember the last time I had to watch anything (apart from an All Blacks test) on a non-freeview channel.

The housemate I think watches a bit of Sky in their room (where the multiroom box is) - Vibe, UKTV E! etc.

I have a Magic TV box and a TiVo sitting at home unopened (one I won, the other from Telecom). Hopefully wither of these would be a suitable replacement for MySky. I also have an Apple TV, and Plex App on the TV.

I don't need Sky, but if they offered a deal, we'd probably keep it. Otherwise....


I personally think the TiVo is a fantastic device if  freeview is all you need. You will need a UHF aerial and be in an area where you can receive freeview via UHF though, I think the same goes for the Magic TV too.

Edit - Typo, TiVo not TV.

I would be more than happy to relieve you of the Tivo for a fair price.

What do you consider fair? Bearing in mind I would have to replace it with something else (not ness. a PVR).

I can trade it for any number of things that you could keep in a box unopened

I picked up our last Tivo from Noel Leemings for $99, so $100 plus the cost of shipping?
