Was on a good deal with Sky - £36. 90 for original package plus broadband and line rental but think my contracts have ended and/or I've been moved to fibre max and bill has jumped to £50 and by May it will be An eye-watering (for me) £70. Can't afford much more than I'm paying now so any help appreciated before I phone them

50% off or GTF is the approach to take.


If you don't get the 50% offer initially it'll show up via your TV account settings shortly after.

Cheers. Does that include the broadband. Can be bothered changing but can't afford to stay. And as I'm in Borders choices are limited

Probably more for the TV package. Broadband is a bit harder to get as a fair chunk of it is line rental.

 

There is a new deal available for new customers for the full TV package at £45/month (this includes Netflix as well). Sod all for existing customers as per usual I'm afraid.

Good lad. Feels great cutting the cord eh?

 

Can understand why people like the ease of sky and if you can afford it and willing to go pay for it by all means. However if it is a sturggle get over to the Kodi thread. No regret here.

It's been going through testing in Italy but no idea how that's went. I've not seen anything come across my desk as yet which normally means a new product is more than 6 months away.

Once GoT is finished I'll bin Sky for a couple years. Got Amazon  Prime which along with freeview is more than enuff. No doubt in 2-3 years I'll rejoin Sky on a cheap offer and stay a couple years before exiting again.

Are Sky getting a bit nervy about customer numbers? I recently got Virgin TV as an upgrade to my broadband deal and it includes a few Sky channels which I've not had for years and since I got it I've had the F1 and a couple of Premiership matches on Sky 1 as opposed to the dedicated sports packages.

My package is coming to an end and my broadband deal with BT is also ending, gonna see if I can bluff my way to a decent discount and broadband deal. 

The only concern is that SKY broadband always seemed laggy before ha sit improved?

Not anymore than normal I don't believe. I think churn last year was the lowest it had been for around 10 years. VM agreed a deal with Sky for the Sky channels so they're probably paying a pretty penny for the privilege...

Sky and BT both use the Openreach network so on paper it should really be the same as long as you get the equivalent package with Sky.

Similar to what I'm going to be doing.

 

We have the Entertainment HD package & multi-room, once GoT is finished the multi-room goes and as the wife mainly only watches Sky One & Fox which she can get on Now TV at a fraction of the cost the whole package can go, it's just getting too expensive now for what we really actually watch, which isn't a great amount nowadays.

I was paying £115+ to Sky for Q when it first came out soon as it was up they wouldnt give me any discounts even though we have had it for nigh in 30years. Left joined Talk Talk and for £55 i get Sky sports , Sky Cinema , Entertainment , 78mb download fibre multi room and then im £20 for bt sport.

 

They really are just ott with charges now

Yeh I was about the same, over £120 per month two years ago, got rid of the sports & movies and it came down to around £90 but it's slowly been creeping up again and with the latest price increases it's £102 right now, enough is enough I'm just not prepared to pay that anymore.

In saying that that's everything, phone line/fibre/TV, but I'm not in contract with anything off sky so even the fibre broadband could be switched.

I'll go with the TV first that'll save me currently £61.50 per month, but the broadband might well be next.

 

Like yourself I've been with Sky for eons now, BSB was still on the go when I first got Sky in.

My folks got sky circa nov 89 when it was just 16channels and 

1 sports channel - when it worked you got Argentinian football

2 rtv?? - some german channel with tutti frutti on it

3 🤷🏻‍♂️

4 eurosport

5 lifestyle

6 and 7 🤷🏻‍♂️

8 sky one

9 and 10 🤷🏻‍♂️

11 filmnet and you ordered a decoder from sweden or the back of a mag

12 sky news

13 and 14 🤷🏻‍♂️

15 mtv

16 sky movies

 

Mad to think what it is now. It is though as you say not worth it. The cable / broadband companies and youview boxes are far better value for money.

This offer doesn’t include broadband does it? With BB it would roughly be how much bud?

Trying to sort my folks out possibly....

No it doesn't.

 

Looks to be 2 options for BB at 20 for around 12 MBps or 27.50 for around 60 MBps (may change depending on the area your folks are at) so around £65-£75 depending on what Broadband and Talk package you choose.

This has ended now. They've replaced it with a 40% off offer for new customers but you can build your own package (i.e. you don't need to add movies/sport/on demand if you don't make use of them).

 

For reference the full package is £44/month with the discount and with Broadband included goes up to around £70 (for the fastest speed). As always, give me a PM if wanted.

Currently trying to get my folks to do something about theirs. Atm it’s in my old mans name but he’s about as much use as a handbrake on a speedboat with these things so what can I do? They pay more than this for basic BB and some entertainment package as it is...

Is there anything you can do? Does it have to be they cancel and then take it again in my mums name for example?
