I just moved into "The Circle" and have been told that it is not possible to get Sky. I am new to the UK as well so am just wondering what my options are to getting channels for the television?

I want to be able to watch sports and get the basic channels of course. I'm not allowed a what options are left?

If you can't have Sky your options are Virgin Media or Tiscali TV. I've had Tiscali TV since when it was called Homechoice and it's a very good product.

You will definitely be able to get Tiscali as it comes through a standard BT phone line, but Virgin will depend on whether they have cabled your building. Use the postcode checker on their website.
