May be missing one or two channels but and then for the channel numbers listed below there may only be one or two programmes per channel that we, the wife and myself, watch.

Channel numbers watched either live or on Catch Up or recorded are as follows:
101, 108, 112, 117, 119, 120, 123, 125, 126, 137, 170, 171, 174, 176, 179, 200 - 212, 323, 402 and 403.
When the grandchildren are here then it's any of the kiddie channels as well. FOR THEM!!! Although I do subject myself to sometimes watching with them. Channels 301 - 311.

Most of what I watch is on the sport channels with a couple of series thrown in. Movies are very seldom watched these days but should I see something "worthwhile" I'll mostly record it for later viewing.

At the moment I'm not aware of any organisation that streams the sports that I'm interested in to the same extent that MC provides it to us so haven't seriously looked into streaming this sort of content. I believe I can subscribe to the Liverpool FC website and then be able to stream all their games plus other content but then wouldn't be able to watch the other EPL games. Likewise with cricket and rugby and lots of other sports.
Yes, I criticise MC for not giving us certain sporting events but, AT THE MOMENT, they are still, as far as I'm aware, the best provider of sporting events for me.

So, streaming isn't on the cards for me just yet. Although I am making use of the FREE, it better be, Showmax offerings for us. Bit of a pain waiting up till midnight so I can make use of the free after midnight download specials that is available to me. But if one must.......! Otherwise waiting till I visit someone with uncapped data to do my downloads.
Explora (Primary) and 2P HD Decoder (Secondary); Twin LNB; Samsung HT-J5550 Home Theatre System, Sony KLV-32S400A tv and Sony KLV-22Bx320 tv.

I have 40 channels on my favourites. The movie channels I keep around in case there is a good movie on (I regularly check the EPG) and I scan through the other channels frequently. If I have nothing in particular to watch, the TV is always on Sky News. However, I record a LOT of shows and movies and mostly watch from my own playlist. I also have Netflix and Showmax, just in case. ;-)

I watch News in the morning, my toddler spends the day on Kids Channels, we Catch Up mainly MNET premium content after work, and when everyone has gone to bed I finish the day with either Discovery, National Geographic or History Channels. Weekends I live on sports channels

I'm now sure of channels number though.
