I called to cancel at the weekend. I had been paying 31e for basic hd tv with kids and documentaries until I went out of contract and it jumped to 50.

I called expecting some sort of decent offer to stay but fully planning on leaving.

The best they could offer me was 45 as I insisted I would need HD - apparently that's 17e per month. Good bye Sky!

I think that if you are on Sky Q you can go with HD as a standalone option, distinct from boxsets. On the older HD boxes you can only pick an option for HD and boxsets combined...

Same here.... bit saucy (and cheeky!). I only 5 months into a Deal that I am due to call on in mid-Nov to keep the deal going.

Will probably ring in mid-Nov and cancel the Sports & Movies as I have other ways of watching same (!!). Movies has really gone to pot.... hardly anything decent has come up in past 5 months.

Looked at my future bills too.

Entertainment going from €32 to €35
Multiroom going from €17.50 to €19

I'm currently in the half price offer for Sports & Sports Extra until February so no change there. Probably take affect when the offer ends.
