    Help! Is live TV possible w/out Sky 7th Jan 20 at 10:25 PM
    Hi roomies,

    After 10 years I've bit the bullet and cancelled my Sky TV package!

    I have Netflix and the On Demand apps on my Phillips Smart TV. It also comes with Freeview Play which doesn't seem to show live TV.

    How can I make it a possibility for the odd times I want to catch a live show on the terristrial channels? What tools or gadgets do I need w/out signing up to another subscription service?

    Millions still use Argos! Easy to take things back and many people are adverse to using Amazon when they pay minimum UK taxes ie 220 millions on sales of 10.9 billions.

Plus with Amazon there are many ways to return a parcel without the hassle of travelling back to an Argos during opening hours.

    So if you disagree with Amazon paying minimum taxes i'm assuming you pay extra tax that you don't need to yourself?....

    Actually, serial returners to Amazon often find their accounts are closed if the percentage of returns to sales is too high.

    So, while initially they may be "very accepting", return too many items and they'll refuse future custom.

    Argos physical stores don't have the luxury of such an account history...
