Called to cancel the weekend after about 5 years, offered me 10% discount..... Was told if I do go ahead with request to cancel that any offers won't be available or else any on my account will be lost? (if I understood correctly) so awaiting another person to call over the next day or two or else I'll go ahead and request cancellation, at least I'll get Christmas out of it!! 10%, even though the come back to sky get 50% off...

Thanks, that's what I'm going to do, can't justify playing over 80 a month for it. The offer they will counter with is it contract free or signing up for a minimum 12/24 month contract?

First up any Sky contract is never any longer than 12 months. The offers are usually free from a contract other than the usual 31 days notice you have to give. Hopefully you get a good offer but just make a note of the date it expires and ring in 31 days beforehand to cancel again. Even if you miss the date Sky only charge per day for the service so you wouldn't be at any great loss.

I have seen an odd post here in the past where someone would get offered half price for 6 months with no contract or 9 / 12 months with a contract but thats a very odd time that would happen and its usually some agent pushing for a bonus.

You're on the pigs back so if I'm reading things right. Follow the link provided by Nava a few posts back (I had to click twice on it btw before it worked) and half price is available for some packs up to 24th December for returning customers

I got a letter in the post last Thursday saying half price on anything for 12 months and offer only valid till 13 December and got an email this morning with the same offer valid till 24 December. HD half price too.

I left in September and it was the first offer I have received but I don't think I will bother, will only go for it if they give it to me free again.

Any chance you could put English on that?. If I read you right, I think you should get rid of the Sky Box and get a combi FTA receiver. That way you can arrange your channels as you prefer to view them.You may need an aerial for the Irish channels, and depending on your location, an aerial in the attic may suffice.

It's the same as the link on the last page. I read through it and it says minimum term applies but it doesn't say what the minimum term is? Sky being as helpful as ever.

I joined Sky 5 years ago and once the first 12 months were gone, I cancelled and I have never paid more than 50% since, had it free for 6 months once and free for 2 or 3 months another time.

My sky was turned off last week, phoned them to see what deals is available and 25% off is the best they would do.
I just started a chat with a sky rep and told him I had got the offer that nava posted above, had to play dumb for awhile but he said no problem 50% off for 12 months, happy days, the wife was going to kill me if I kept it turned off over Christmas.

with Sky Q pricing and details coming in Feb/March, it might be an idea to try and find out if you can change to Sky Q without penalty during a 12 month contract. The person you're talking to will probably not know the answer - the last guy I spoke to said they had no info on it yet. That's why I'd be wary of signing a 12 month contract at this time.
