There's one for a package that excludes Sport for £45/month but I think it's actually cheaper to get the same package direct...

 

None of the decent deals at the moment I'm afraid. Will bump when there is.

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..  

 

 

I had an issue with my 10 year old Sky HD box and phoned them up to cancel saying I was moving to Virgin because I wasn’t wanting to pay the extra for Sky Q. They had an engineer out to me a couple of days later for free and swapped out my old box for a better refurbished one.

Virgin are bumping my bill up with the option to cancel for free. Pondering Sky but need it in two rooms and would want literally every bolt on possible. Any tips to hey this cheaper as it looks like it would be about 250 quid up front and hundreds per month?

Does that include sport as well? Ours is just about up soon and they’ll be getting the phone call too.

Aargh. Too late. Phoned them up and negotiated a deal with them, had to move swiftly to cancel Virgin in time. Hope your deal wasn't better ?

Cancel at the end of every deal. If you wait about a fortnight you should get a good offer to sign up again.

i've found these days that I dont have to phone up and cancel I was given an 18month extension on half price TV package without doing anything meaning I get phone, line rental, broadband and all the HD channels for £65 a month which I think is a decent deal.

 

It generally tells you what you can get when you phone up these days after putting in your details.

Decent deal. I tried to get something similar (I hadn't seen your post) but they wouldn't do the Sky Q. 

 

Best offer was to continue on Sky HD for 18months at £35 p/m for Entertainment and Sport. 

 

I've cancelled (happy to wait and see if i get any offer to come back). 

 

Managed to get a discounted offer on BT Ultra HD in the mean time and it's very very good.

I’ve tried before for sky q but not had any luck. Quite surprised to be honest to getter 2tb box and mini for only £40. The monthly sub discount is pretty standard these days in my experience.

Full TV Package including Netflix for £45/month for 18 months. Broadband would then need to be added on top of this.

Moved to SKY fibre a couple of months ago from BT, unimpressed tbh. WiFi signal seems weaker for one thing.

 

Also SKY have an app which they claim tests your connection and speed, continually gives me a reading of 57mbs even when I was recently standing in the middle of a field some 3 miles from my house!

 

They are totally at it, considering going crawling back to BT for my broadband.

 

Anyone else noticed a big difference moving BT to SKY?

Should be just the same. Its the same line. If your router was reset at any point in the first week it may have affected your speed. 

 

Try running https://www.speedtest.net

Unaware of how Sky’s app/Speedtest  works but it may be the case that they’ve deployed line testing code into their router.

 

BT Broadband do this with the newer home hubs. When you request a test it contacts a server in BT’s network which initiates a speed test between the Hub and a Datacentre then stores the stats (and then updates the app to show you the result). 

 

Could be be the same with Sky’s Hub.

Moved last week and like you I'm getting advised online by SKY my speed is 34mbs (what is was with BT) but when I try other speed tests its at 21mbs. I will wait ten days grace as they say it can fluctuate. I presume I can walk away if they are not providing the speed promised prior to signing up.

I left them a few months ago as the price was going up to about £34 for a pretty basic package. Got them down to £20 but I wasn't interested. Since then I have had emails offering £17, £14 and now £11 on a 12-month contract. Might take them up on the £11 one

Yeah think I’m gonna have to get them to leave or at least threaten to leave. Paying £70 and only get a fairly basic package atm.
