hi all,

feeling very down, as I just signed up to sky deal yesterday and I came to know today, our building management doesnt let sky dish to be installed and virgin media is the only option. Can somebody please recommend any good deal for tv+web+phone (at the moment, I have signed up with BT for £8.50 pcm and O2 bb for 7£ pcm), looking for a basic tv package with asian channels.

any useful replies will be left rep,

cheers

surely you have 7/14 days to cancel sky? If so, you why not cancel and sign upto Virgin?

Are you in tied into a contract with BT and/or 02?
#2
ya i can cancel sky but the deal was really cracking. I have moved to new place and I am a new customer for BT, but still in contract with O2, I m not sure if I would be able to get out of the contract or not.

Rep added Disco.

no, i just signed up for the basic package, on half price it was £10 (a few asian channels come inclusive of the basic package) On Virgin, I might have to take asian package which is around £10 pcm on top of the usual montly rent.

like what?
#12
i think star plus is the most desirable one for my better half, it was one pound extra per month I had to pay to get the package having asian channels on sky
#13
Star plus doesnt come with Virgin as far as I know...

Packages range from .... £29 pm including Phone Line, upto £65 inc Phone Line
You get 1st two months for FREE if taking out the basic package,
Its £3.45 for the 1st two months if Medium Package
and £3.01 for 1st two months if Large Package (works out £48 per month)

Various combinations can he had in between and a V+ Box is an extra one off payment of £49 (although if you barter with them it could be free as well - play then off against SKY)

You can get £65 Cashback if you go via Quidco, or upto £130 (aledgely) via Topcashback although it seems its only as £65 also. (I havent used either so dont know whats they're like at tracking/paying out! - But others will know!)

thats kool mate, any idea how can I cancel O2 without having to pay for the rest of the contract . There have been many problems regarding downloading speed with O2.
#15
you could complain about the speeds like, other than that, the cashback will cover what you have to pay - or speak to VM, they may buy you outta the 02 contract. (give you a 3rd free month or so)
