Hi, what would be my best option for receiving movie channels in Newhaven, Derbyshire SK17 0DT. Already have a sky dish and box as used to have Sky for standard package + movies, is there a cheaper option than Sky? Please email me any advice, info, thank you.

Mrs Allen: If you have a stable internet connection (ideally 5Mbps or faster) there are various movie subscripition services that are worth considering. As this website is focused on free TV I won't go in to detail, but Amazon Prime, Netflix and Now TV are all worth looking at.
