Brits pay more to watch premium TV than any other country
So, if you want to watch live sports or the latest Hollywood films, you'll have to stump up more than people in the US and the rest of Europe. Hardly seems fair does it?
Ofcom found that British consumers pay an average of £66 per month for the 'best offer' subscriptions (this is defined as including the "best package of top league football" as well as films and HD TV), coughing up more than twice the amount paid by consumers in the cheapest nation surveyed.
Germany is the cheapest with an average of £27 per month, while the Spanish pay £49, followed by the US with £47, then Italy and France who pay £40 and £35 respectively, according to Ofcom's annual communications market report.
It does balance out slightly if you look at mobile and broadband services however.
Ofcom found that in the UK, we pay less than Europe and America for our phones and internet connection, and noted that UK consumers get a decent deal on basic television packages compared to the rest of the world. If you want the best in Britain, it'll cost you.
