BT TV Contact expired

My contract with BT has recently expired i.e. broadband; landline; mobile and TV.
I called yesterday to say that I wanted to renew everything but TV.  To be honest I have hardly used BT TV over the last 2 years and I am paying £15 per month.  I have watched a few football matches in all that time.
BT offered me a few options other than cancellation:
1) Pay £5 PCM for the basic package.  After pushing them I found out that this means I get freeview with nothing else (I already have freeview on my tv).   I was then offered six months amazon prime free on top of this and the ability to add/remove additional extras e.g. sport on a month by month basis.
2) Pay £10 PCM and get certain Sky entertainment channels on top of the basic package (Freeview).  Plus the ability to add/remove 
additional extras e.g. sport on a month by month basis.
I would be interested to hear what others have done in my situation.

    Check because BT TV will hook you into a 24 month contract, so you would have to keep paying at least £10 a month for two years.

    If you have a BT box, stick with Freeview if you don't watch much on the pay channels.
