Guys, is 35% off the max they anyone has gotten these days?
I cancelled and see an offer of 35% off on my account - wondering should I just go for it or hold on and see.

Also, I am on the old Variety Package (no longer exists apparently) - does anyone know what the difference between the Variety and Entertainment + kids package is?? .. Do you lost the documentaries or is that attomatic on it?

It looks like that's all anyone gets now. At one time I had 35% off the main package, half price movies, half price HD and the extremely rare half price multi room. I'm strongly considering letting my contract expire and just pulling the pin on the whole shebang.

quick question re sports extra pack

currently there is an offer of all sports channels for €30 pm for six months. Do i have to keep the offer for the six months or can i give my 30 days notice after say 4 months?

Its really to do with watching the champions cup rugby from next weekend on BT - with fixture in nov, dec and jan i want to cancel in jan and then get it in again for april/may- is this possible if you are on a six months offer? Thanks in advance

Why are people still paying for SKY? Realy and truly.

Get a free sat box, Netflix or amazon prime or later in 2020 disney+ .

It's like shopping in Aldi Or Lidl! you will buy it but do you really need it?

Only a 30 day contract on Sports, so cancel anytime.

You're never tied into anything more than 30 days with sports. If you cancel before the 6 months, that's fine...

I have Sky, I like a lot of the subscription channels and I want the sport, I have the movies but could do without. Granted some of the subscription channels are dross. I also have Freesat and it is fine but fairly limited and in my opinion it can't be compared to Sky.

RTE1 and RTE2 are both still available as HD on 101 and 102. They're available as SD somewhere in the 800s for recording.

I attempted to cancel my Sky today, price was going from €50 to €95 a month for TV and Broadband as I had reached the end of my 12 month offer. Told them I was going to get cheaper BB elsewhere and freesat. Was passed onto the cancellation team and immediately offered the 'win back offer', 35% off! I knew it was the best I could get going by this thread so decided to go for it
