OK if you want to pay a lot of money to watch free TV and be miffed if your internet connection slows to a treacle I suppose. It's a bit like going back to the 70's where you rented a colour TV and they took it away if you stopped paying. It's far more cost effective to buy a smart TV (they have satellite and terrestrial tuners these days), from the huge range of choice out there, and pay a smaller sub to stream your Sky premium channels through the built in Now TV app....no extra box needed unless you want a soundbar.
