Apart from the question of the satellite moving (I have had an e mail today from a company in the UK - not our provider - who says that soon (it is always 'soon') we will not be able to receive UK tv any more (this has been ongoing since last year !) ....however, since my OH suffered a stroke at the beginning of October and now spends a lot more time indoors (he still climbs a ladder to trim the trees - strictly forbidden of course !) ...he has asked me to look at the possibility of upping our package to include Sky Movies and HD question is, has anyone done this, and is it worth it ...i e in terms of the movies available .....this week he has been watching a lot of cowboy movies, disaster movies and old US movies ...he is now watching Sea dogs or something ........Are most of the movies on Sky Movies modern ones ? He does not watch anything after around 1950 ????

If as threatened we do lose the UK tv I guess I will have to buy a shipping order of DVD's to add to the Cruel Sea, Gilbert and Sullivan, etc etc ..............

Thanks for any advice !

You can see what's on Sky here;
As to wether you will lose the UK channels, it depends on your location, it can mean installing a larger dish, but no-one knows a the moment, as the new satellite is not yet in position.
