    issue with alot of these offers is that the price changes outside of contract or after 12 months. My guess is that this will cause 60-80 euro post 12 months?

    That's why you change provider every 12 months if haggling with them doesn't work. Looks like a really good deal, OP, especially if you like Sky Sports.

    Yep, at which point you try and get them to make you a better offer (by starting the cancellation process if necessary), and switch to another provider if needed.

    Sky, Eir and Vodafone all offering that fibre package now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 459 ✭✭phester28


    ya changing is not for everyone though. I've experience of it first hand where the change over does not go well and you are left with no BB or phone for 1.5 weeks. spending hours on the phone being asked the really stupid questions (have you tried plugging it out and back in again) when I know that it was a line fault due to the local exchange not being set up correctly.

    Would not like to be without during lockdown as I need it for work


  • Registered Users Posts: 790 ✭✭✭mydiscworld


    Thanks OP. Seriously good offr.

    Sky were charging 60 pm last week for same package, and that was without Sports or 50euro voucher

    Apologies for a stupid q (it has been a while since I had Sky)

    Does it still need Sky dish and a landline?

    I currently have FTTH gigabit internet on infrastructure owned by Open Eir. No landline.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,447 ✭✭✭✭TheDriver


    Switching is indeed dependent on the base supplier. FTTC through eir can be problematic whilst FTTH with siro appears to be seamless.

    Good offer if its a 12 month contract rather than being charged €55 a month for 12 months and then hammered for the remainder of the contract.

    Any outage if you move from SIRO to Sky?


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,328 ✭✭✭✭lawred2


    Decent offer alright

    Are sky still charging extra for HD channels?

    It doesn’t need a landline, but you will need to change FTTH. Sky don’t resell Open Eir’s version, only SIRO.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,873 ✭✭✭Soarer


    Don’t forget, Sky can up their prices even though you’re in contract.
    It’s part of the terms you agree to when you sign up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,466 ✭✭✭✭Ush1


    It's a good deal but for broadband my copper phone line connection is awful so I'm forced to stick with virgin.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,889 ✭✭✭✭loyatemu


    cancelling Sky is a real PITA, factor in several hours of your day wasted trying to cancel in a years time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 298 ✭✭ltd440


    I have a few months left on a Vodafone contract, does anyone know what Vodafone early cancellation fees are?


  • Registered Users Posts: 143 ✭✭ColdTurkey


    I signed up last week for the sixty a month without all the extras. Would they change it do you think?

    When I was quitting them a month ago I called up and said " I am cancelling because I no longer use your service". Maybe I got lucky but the cancellation was immediate. No sales pitching.

    Use your 14 day cooling off period

    Seems to be an issues with building the bundle online.

    BB + Sports = €55pm
    BB + Sports + BT = €65pm
    BB + Sports + BT + Movies = €80pm

    They are adding €15 instead of €5 for the Sky Cinema package.

    yeah I noticed something similar earlier

    I think it's a typo on the Sky site. It should say €15 and not €5, IE. half the normal price. If you try an order the Cinema package and add the sports, the sports are charged at half the normal price but max price per months is still €80.

    Hmm i think this could be same for me. Message on website saying to call the number as they were unable to identify my availability.

    I need it for work, two of us, so to move and have terrible coverage would be a disaster.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,745 ✭✭✭SachaJ


    Also for those also paying €15.99 a month for Netflix.

    On top of the €65pm for Broadband and TV, you can add the UltraHD + HD pack for €12 and the Netflix pack for €6 (it then takes -€1 off the Signature TV pack so it's really €5).

    Essentially add the UltraHD channels/Netflix for €17 and cancel your own Netflix sub which is €16. For that extra €1 you are getting the 4k channels.

    in my case I'm paying €45pm to Vodafone and €16pm to Netflix. €61pm in total. With Sky it would be €82 for TV, Sports, 4k, Netflix, Broadband. My assumption is that the Netflix account stays as is and it can be watched on multiple non-Sky devices.

    Anyone know if you can sideload the Sky Go app on Android TV (OS) or Chromecast from an Android device to ATV?

    Check with airwire checker. If the VDSL is anything less than 80meg it's probably gonna be not stable and a pain.

    I hate being stuck with virgin but no other game in town until eir FTTH. Crazy as I'm in Dublin in an urban area.

    I thought you could only get UltraHD by taking out multiroom. Has that changed?

    It allows me to select Ultra HD without selecting Multiscreen.

    But i see in the T&C's. So that's a bizarre one if true:

    It's easy to activate Netflix once you've got Ultimate TV Addon, we'll tell you how to do this. If you're an existing Netflix customer, you need to activate that account so they know to stop billing you. You'll need Multiscreen with Ultimate TV Addon to get the Netflix Premium plan, Ultra HD and watch on up to 4 screens. Sky Cinema is €9 a month with Sky Sports after offers expire.

    Other UltraHD T&C's, no mention of Multiscreen:
    Sky UHD: €12 per month (includes HD and UHD). Requires Sky Signature. Ultimate TV Add On required to watch Netflix in UHD. 31 days’ notice to cancel. Content depends on Sky TV subscription. Selected content available in UHD. Sky Sports and/or Sky Cinema subscription(s) required for sports and movies in Ultra HD. Ultra HD unavailable via Sky Q Mini(s).

    Its saying up to 100 so yeah probably a risk.
    So the FTTH listed on airwire would just mean Virgin lines and not EIR?

    Neither, it’s SIRO.

    Is this new customers only? I'm with Sky but not in a contract or anything.

    Siro listed as unavailable.
