My Sky subscription is now getting very expensive, in my eyes, and someone suggested IPTV.
They say it's about £60 per year ...................... that sounds very cheap.

If anyone is using it, what are the pros and cons, please.

You will need good broadband to ensure a good stream

There are many legal IPTV providers - Sky go , Now TV etc but £60 a year means it’s not one of them

But as normal if you watch anything that’s broadcast on subscription services in the UK it’s illegal and ISPs are looking at ways to block lots of streams

If you want to watch Sky services etc then you need to go via one of the authorised providers

What do you want to watch.
If it's movies and TV series then there other options, if you want live TV/ sport then IPTV is the way to go.

Ask that same group of people what the punishment for shoplifting should be, or for someone who steals their golf clubs?

IPTV via a Firstick is a great way to invest in organised crime if you are in to tha sort of thing.
