Simplifydigital.com says: Forget the Flowers, Send your Loved One to TV Heaven

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the pressure is on to get the perfect gift to say I love you. And with research showing that watching the telly is our number one “stay at home” pleasure whether male, female, young or old – forget cards and flowers this year – how about a Digital TV package to cosy up to?

As Charlie Ponsonby, CEO at Simplifydigital.com says:

“We get many callers buying a TV package as a gift for their other half. Unusual as it sounds, a TV subscription from Sky or Virgin Media for example, makes a great present and is perfect for Valentine’s Day.”

“This year, with the launch of Sky Atlantic, it has given households a whole new reason to get Sky. With shows like Martin Scorcese’s Boardwalk Empire to the new season of Mad Men – if you’re not watching, you’re not part of the conversation.”

Sky Atlantic is a new channel offering the very best of US drama from HBO and others. In Simplifydigital.com’s view it is the biggest reason to get Sky for the last two or three years. It offers a huge range of extremely high quality US drama to brand new, critically acclaimed shows like Martin Scorcese’s Boardwalk Empire, Blue Bloods starring Tom Selleck, and Treme from David Simon the creator of The Wire – plus new season Mad Men and Entourage – as well as old favourites such as 24 and The Sopranos.

If this year you’ve decided that staying in is the new going out on Valentine’s Day, then the choice of TV packages on offer has never been more exciting.  Here is Simplifydigital.com’s guide to what’s on offer.
