It’s a common enough problem – you’re trying to watch a film online and are actually spending 29 out of every 30 seconds watching the video buffering. After five minutes of silent seething rage where you swear you’ll upgrade your broadband first thing tomorrow, you give up and turn on the TV to watch... yet another CSI rerun, or that Top Gear episode where they destroy a caravan. Amusing the first three times you saw it, not the tenth though.
Isn’t it time to change?
A quick broadband connection and selection of digital TV channels are fast becoming home essentials exactly because your average consumer won’t stand for this kind of unfulfilling service any longer. We want to be able to download films and music in triple quick time, and we want access to the latest and greatest programming – be it drama, documentaries or sport – on demand.
But in these austere times, getting a top quality TV or broadband package
can seem a little expensive. Which is why we recommend combining them – do it cleverly and you could save yourself a fair amount.
A number of suppliers offer TV and broadband deals and bundles
. Sky and Virgin Media both have combined packages from around £20 per month (depending on the offer), and for that you’ll get speeds between 10 and 20 mps and a wide range of decent digital channels, including Sky One, ESPN, MTV and G.O.L.D, as well as loads of standard digital channels like Film Four and the History Channel.
Getting these combined can commonly save you at least 50 per cent when compared to buying separately from different suppliers.
But you don’t have to follow the big names. If you want to be smart, its imperative that you do your research and compare all the TV and broadband
deals on the market. There are a couple of easy ways to do that, and Simplify Digital is here to help you.
