How to save money on your tv bill
For us, having a t.v subscription service is a way in which we can save money on things like cinema trips and DVD’s. It is still however a luxury item and I am always trying to reduce these costs to save money. These are a few of the ways that I’ve saved money on T.V over the last few years.
If you use a subscription service such as Sky then try haggling with them to reduce your bill. I recently did this and managed to save over £100 over the course of a year.
If you hate calling companies to haggle with them over the phone then you’ll pleased to know that you don’t have to anymore. Just go on their website and speak to them over their online live chat service.
