Rang to cancel my Sky as it had gone up to 97 for the variety pk, HD and BB.

Ended up staying cause they dropped the price down to 67 for the year so stuck with them.

For anyone cancelling beware. I just got off the phone with sky, when you sign back up there is no cooling off period. I got dissconected two weeks ago and tried to get the offer that they had offered me before it was cancelled.
I had a child crying and I stupidly agreed to to sign back to a much higher price.

I rang back straight away after I hung up and said I made a mistake that i want to stay cancelled and was told no I can't there is no cooling off period what so ever.
I was told on the phone it was a brand new contract and that was why I couldn't get my original deal. I disputed it about having no cooling off period and none of it was explianed to me and i got no where.
So once you sign back up there's no turning back.

So went back to Sky after 3 years away.

€39 pm for 12 months

All channels Variety pack with HD pack apart from Movies and Sports.

Sky Q 1TB with box sets

This offer was instead of taking the 32 TV (I don't need)

If I went for the same package with the TV it would have cost me €48.50 pm

Not a bad a deal if you ask me!!

Thanks
Robert

That won't include HD so if you were to add HD and Sports price doubles very quickly

That price of 48.50 was for the TV including Variety Pack with HD and NO Sports

Antway I didn't go for it in the end I went with the 39.50 which was a good offer in my eyes

I spent an hour on the phone haggling with a Sky rep and I was offered same price rock bottom but no HD included. I did get HD included for €42 or €44pm providing I kept old Sky HD system. If I upgraded to Q the monthly cost was more for a HD charge

The chap I was speaking too was saying that this was a alternative to thge TV offer. So instead of getting the TV I basically got the HD for free for the year with SKY Q.

Ah, I know why I got this, I set this up in my wifes name so we got the new customer deal, maybe that's the reason??!

Hi,

Just incase anyone is going to get Sky Q in, they replace the LNB with the new Wideband LNB which works with Sky Q, but it doesn't work with FTA boxes or other sat boxes. You have to ask for the engineer to bring a hybrid LNB instead which works with everything (FTA and Sat boxes).

Save you having to change this at a later date.

Hope this is helpful to people.
