In my quest to get the best media available for the best value possible I am considering Sky for the first time in ages.
The reason is the new channel Soho.
This totally looks the business, basically because I like HBO as it has the shows I want to watch.
Yeah, I know it is an attempt to stop torrent downloading and I'm cool with that as long as it delivers. VPN + Netflix demands a lot of bandwidth, plus the set up and ongoing costs.
So, here is how I understand it:
I pay $47 per month for the basic service which has 'normal tv' and History, Nat Geo et al.
Then I pay another $9.99 per month to get SoHo which is basically HBO old and new.
I would have to sign up to a term contract (12 months?)
If I want to pay $15 per month more or $599 up front I can get MySky which will record a certain amount.
This actually sounds pretty reasonable.
Is there anything I am missing?
What is the best way to record Sky, preferably to a hard drive?
Has SoHo changed anybody else's view of Sky?
