They did cancel my sports package with immediate effect last week in fairness to them, in contract too but they’ve already applied credit to the account for the lost days. It’s absolutely worth doing so and make sure to tell them to cancel with immediate effect, if they can do it for me they should be able to do it for anyone. The notice period wasn’t even mentioned.

Just wanted to share my experience with Sky this morning, cancelled one month ago, rang to discuss sending the equipment back.

Corona virus or not sky expect you to break the curfew, put your health at risk and post their equipment back, if they don't receive the equipment within 60 days they will still fine you up to 300 quid for the Q box, mini box and router.

But hey we will give it back to you when we get the stuff back, they refused all other suggestions of getting the stuff collected by courier or getting their installers to collect.

Did they send out the box to you to send the stuff back?
Tomorrow is D-Day for us, our service finishing as we called on March 2nd to cancel. Haven't received anything from them yet though - even though i think they had said we would be receiving packaging to send it back.

Has anyone tried to get an extension on Now TV Sky Sports deals? I got a 6 months offer via pigsback.com for Sky Sports and activated it 2 weeks BC (before Corona)

I did get Variety down to 19e - that did mean losing HD though. Having said that RTE and BBC are still in HD

Let it cancel down. Then check your online Sky account an there should be an offer for at least 35% off.

My reading of last comment was that they asked for cancellation and it'll process in a month from now. If that's the case, then check your account - there'll be a 35% offer there already (or should be, if past behaviour is anything to go by)

Out of contract and currently on the basic tv package, paying 32 a month. Had been thinking of going Freesat/Saorview but would leave it one more year with Sky if they would give me a discount. Are they known to do that just for the basic package and what might I get? And do you have to go and cancel and wait the 31 days before any offers come along?

I had the plug pulled yesterday. No comeback offers by phone or in my account. I had Sky Sports and HD on top of variety.
