I'm out of contract on the 20th I'm going to push hard and if it means no service in 31 days I'm going for it. It has become very expensive.

Apart from the PL football, there's not a lot going for Sky these days.
Netflix and Amazon giving them a run for their money.

Could anyone help me with the following?

I cancelled sky last week went through the whole process. TV and broadband was going from €77 a month to €120 so I told them no chance. First got an offer of €103 then after constantly saying no I was given an offer of €90. Still continued to say no to this.

Got a message today to say I've been offered 35% off Sky+ TV for 12 months. Although, when I go to the link I was sent its not showing a price of what it will cost me a month. Its asking me to accept the offer of 35% but won't tell me a price.

Could anyone breakdown the cost for me if possible of what I have got already and what would be included :-

Sky Q
Sky entertainment
Ultimate on demand

Sky broadband superfast
Sky talk
Sky talk freetime

Thanks in advance!

Best thing to do is call them and advise of the offer you were given. They will then apply it for you and explain the bills. You will have a 14 day cooling off period.

From memory of when I cancelled, it'll be off the base price only, so the sky q and entertainment will be discounted, but not the rest. Definitely not the broadband and phone. As previous poster said, best thing is to ring and check.

Yeah it's off the TV only. So say Entertainment with Sports, you'd get 35% off that. Best thing to do if you are taking the offer is take TV only and then call back and see what broadband offers they have going.

Just an FYI, I'm out of contract 4 months and have sent my box back. Best offer is to pay €149 for new box (which you don't own) and 35% off basic package. Basic package price is €40 (not €35 like I see on their own website, and €25 for new customers). Another €8 for HD, more for kids, etc. needless to say I said not a hope.

Called Sky Friday evening to cancel my Sports pack and the BT/Premier pack as my €30 offer was expiring.

Didn't get any offer, no haggling nothing. The agent just went straight to the process of cancelling. I was a bit surprised.

It was around 7.50pm on a Friday evening and I think they knock off at 8, so that probably explains it
