The Rising Cost Of Household Bills

In the UK we live in very uncertain times. Our government is in disarray with little or no direction and the constant threat of Brexit being a no-deal, or in fact whether we leave at all, and an opposition political party that doesn’t have a clue, leaves the rest of us scratching our heads in disbelief. However, it has much more far reaching consequences on the general public. You know the ones, people like you and me, just trying to get by week by week, and more importantly making our wages stretch as far as possible. This is not helped by the rising costs of household bills.

If you are anything like me you are always looking to save money on different household bills so that there is some money left over to enjoy some summer day trips or a few luxuries for the children.

When you have young children, like we do, the chances are that a lot of time is spent at home. We don’t have any regular child care so we spend a lot of time as a family at home and that means we want the best entertainment in tv and the internet that we can find at an affordable price.

When it comes to television nowadays it is no longer just about the main channels that I grew up with. My seven year old twin girls now have a huge amount of channels to choose from and they love Netflix and YouTube to name a couple. My wife and I are on smart phones or the laptop, or want to watch a film on Sky once the girls are in bed and of course so much of this today is streamed via the internet, so I am always on the lookout for the best Broadband and TV Deals that offer a good reliable internet speed, and that there are no issues with streaming and obviously at a great price.

Just taking the time to look around will not only save you money, it could get you a great deal too. For example, SKY are currently offering 301 tv channels with an 11mps average speed plus Spotify free for 3 months including your Q box with a one off up front payment of £39.95. It is all just £44.50 per month for an 18 month contract. I think that’s a fantastic offer, but if that doesn’t suit you or your budget there is always a deal that will.

When you are looking for a good and affordable TV and Broadband deal for yourself there are a number of things you should keep in mind.

Broadband Speed

When looking for a deal make sure the speed is fast enough for your needs, especially if you have teenagers gaming.

Number of Channels

Just because they offer you lots of channels don’t be fooled. Quality is always better than quantity and most of those channels you may never watch.

Contract length

Remember to always check the contract length and that you are happy to be tied to that supplier for a set amount of time.


It’s important to know how much you want to spend before you start looking that way you will get the exact deal to suit you and your family.

Keeping our household bills down can be a full-time job, but it can be made easier by going online and checking out the best deals available for such things as a combined TV and Broadband deal.
