What Football TV Package - If any?

Hello. If you're my fiancee, don't read on. Else, I'm grateful if you may share your advice and experience. I'm toying with the idea of treating myself to a TV Sports subsription too watch all the pre- and Worldcup footbaall action. Now, this may make me sound odd and stupid but I have no idea 'who covers what' as I usually go to friends, the pub or watch the free channels. Do I get Sky Sports 1, 2 or both? Do I need ESPN too? Or will all the Worldcup games be free anyway? It's so expensive and I don't want to be conned by $ky.

Hello. I'd save your money and go back down the pub; it's more fun and the atmosphere's better.

If you go for Sky Sports (£18 a month) you get Sky Sports channels 1-4 which has Premiership, Championship and Football League and Spanish Football and England away games (i think?)
If you want extra Premiership and italian, french and german football you need ESPN as well which is an extra 10 a month.
World cup games will be free on BBC and ITV, but ITV does the worst football coverage of any channel!

Well, if she's your fiancee does that mean you've got wedding costs on the horizon too? I'd go for a simple registry office do then crisps and a pint in the nearest pub. Save your money for the full Sky Sports package. There's no point getting hitched unless you can be sure you're going to get your basic human rights established on a solid footing from the off.

Sounds reasonable to me!

Thank you for all for your advice. I completely forgot about the wedding! Bummer. Think I'll get Sports HD to keep her happy

Just go to a website "myp2p" and download the software and watch it all free over the internet, "simples!"
