Might as well ask here even though sky don't really deal with this, what's the cheapest way to get bt sport on sky? Binned bt sport ages ago cos they're an arsehole company but I'm starting to get tired of fumbling about with dodgy streams. Looking online and it's well expensive particularly for the rolling contract, if I phone them am I likely to have a chance of a decent deal? I don't want their broadband or bt tv. 

 

Also noticed sky and bt are doing a merger of sorts and it will finally be available as part of the sky package from 2019.

Afraid so. They never do any deals for the TV package for existing customers unless it's adding on multiscreen or extending your package :(

Hi guys

hopefully someone can help me. I live in the middle of nowhere. a wee village just off the A1. i only have the option of sky or BT. i pay sky £67 per month. broken down by broadband £39 ( £18 line, £21 broadband,  and tv £22. just the kids mix. no sports or movies.)

im struggling to pay this every month and in constant debt with sky to the point they cut me off until i manage to clear the bill. 

does anyone work for sky be able to help me out with a better package. Sky have the monopoly down here. BT is pointless but have better connection broadband as its their telephone exchange.

When does your contract run out? Should tell you somewhere in your "MySky" account page.

 

Once it comes up for renewal you can usually negotiate a 50% off deal to stay for another 12 months.

Pretty much this. People that work for Sky rarely get any decent codes for existing customers.

They can spin on it ....wish I did it years ago

Realised I was paying £96 for the full package including sports/cinema,  Box sets, HD and 1 multiroom box. 

 

Been a customer for 16 years and paid the full price for most of it, does that get taken into account or are all the decent deals for new customers? Been offered same package for £62 a month. Is that the best I am likely to get?

I’ve been with sky for 14 years now . Two years ago I called up trying to get a better deal with no luck so said I wanted to cancel. Later that night logged into my account and there was a half price offer ( I’ve got full package including sky q and multi-room ) which I’ve still got thankfully as there’s no way I’d pay full price for it again . Think cancelling and waiting on an offer is the only way to get a decent deal if you’re an excisting customer.

How easy is it to get out of these types of contracts? (My daughter has split up with her bf and can no longer afford the £40/month package she took out last year).

I have no idea I'm afraid. She would need to phone up and speak to them about the options.

I'm still astounded people pay out that amount of money each month for Sky. IPTV is less than one months subscription.

I called these guys today to try and reduce my bill which is currently £74+ pm. That's only with ADSL broadband, kids TV and box sets.

Told them Vodafone were offering me fibre and line rental for £20pm but they still wouldn't budge any on price.

Bye-bye sky broadband then. £14 pm saved by booting that, along with better internet.

Anyone using EE TV?  It sounds like a decent proposition,  especially being able to use it on multiple devices - 4 I think. But I've not idea if their box is any good.

I’ve had a half price deal from sky for the past 2 years which was due to end in August . This morning I got a letter from them saying they’ve extended it for a further 12 months from then . Happy with that as I was thinking I was going to have to call them soon and haggle a new deal

Bump.

 

@Dean Winchester, I’ll be hoping to maybe get a deal soon. Anything on the go mate?

 

Also, do you have any info on bt being available through sky rather than going through bt?

Nothing at the moment. I expect probably end of the month but no promises.

 

It will be available on Sky in a package from early next year but for now I think you have to buy directly from BT and supply them with your viewing card number.

No worries Dean, thanks for the reply. I’m in contract with Virgin until mid September anyway, so no rush.

 

I’ll be in touch in the future mate.

If you want BT Sport via Sky - you just need to provide your viewing card number to get it activated.

At the moment - there's a "Get BT Sport free for 18months" deal.

It's worth considering BTTV as a service for the Ultra HD channel.

Maybe a bit late but I just cancelled my D/D with Sky via online banking halfway through. I got about 3 threatening letters then about 50 saying all is forgiven, please come back, pretty please.

 

Eh...naw, thanks.

Very much this! Been with them for about 6 years and in terms of tv package I’ve had absolutely everything in HD Sky+ the last 24 months for £34 after getting a 60% discount.

 

Discount been wiped now, i’ve cancelled, negotiations will begin. Don’t take any pish from them.

Days after cancelling I’ve been offered an upgrade to Sky Q, full package in HD for £55 a month with a £30 install.

 

£40 with free install id take as it’s an 18 month contract.

 

Any existing customers upgrading had anything similar of late?

Our on demand download speed is pathetic. 2-3 hours for an SD version of the walking dead for example.. 

 

Called sky my options (after full reset etc) are: get sky q, pay for an engineer (£65) or suffer it. We can't get Q as we are in a four in a block with communal dish. £65 is a *** rip off when you've been with a company for five years. Have to look at alternatives, although virgin not available to us. 

 

Skyguy actually asked if I wanted to buy a new box as its five years old and hard drive may be wearing out. Durability of technology these days is pathetic. Things are designed to fail to force upgrades. 

 

Going to look at BTTV but there's so much in the way of installation/setup fees etc to make it prohibitively expensive atm..
