Currently paying around $35 plus GST each month to Sky for my Starter & Entertainment package...
I like to record the TV News at 6pm for the day's headlines and the weather forecast. I can then fast-forward through the boring bits (usually the adverts and most of the sport reporting).
With the Vodafone TV device this was possible without a satellite dish.
I haven't got the time or patience to read and understand the existing 43+ pages... what just want to know is... when will anyone provide a suitable recording device that doesn't need a dish?
I went through the same thought process for the same reasons - but I like recording things off many Sky channels, so after 25 years of cable TV, I bit the bullet and had a dish installed.
Our New Sky Box in our house works well enough not to annoy me. YMMV
