Sky Multi-Room Reactivation - £2.50 per month with New HD Box/Remote and Free Installation

1970steve1970steve

OK. Don't know if this is nationawide or simply got these guys on a good day. Was hesitant in posting until I know for sure the details/confirmation.

Got a phone call about 9 days ago - Sky guy wanting to know if I wanted to reinstate my multi-room subscription (which I had about 2 years ago, but cancelled - Sky Go etc) I said not really because of these reasons. He said he could do it for £2.50/month - which is kind of a good price on it's own I guess.

That said, I no longer have the TV in the same room as it was installed last time over. He suggested he could have it reinstalled in another room - which makes sense. Cost - Free! Also - he is bringing a brand new Sky HD box and installing it free too.

So, for £2.50 per month I am getting installation, new Sky HD Box, remote (obviously) and phone line extension - he is coming today to install (phone call last night confirming the details). Result in my opinion, and all for an extra £2.50/month. Worth noting that I am on the package which DOESN'T include Movies and Sports - so it would appear it's not limited to people with the full package.

Like I say - don't know if this option is available if you were to just call them but it's worth a try. Good luck should you decide to go with it.

    But you wouldn't you still have to pay for the HD package in order to get the HD channels?
    Sky have offered myself a free HD box but then I would of had to pay an about extra tenner a month for the HD channels.

    Well I already have HD on the current box - actually at home now chatting to the guy and it's HD alright!

    I thought it was £10 per household for the HD channels no matter how many multirooms you had?

    It is now, the multi HD subscription for multiroom was dropped a while ago

    You actually have to wait for the call to come in from a agent, you can't just ring them up and get this offer. It is only a point based offer. Still Hot though.

    Is there a similar type deal - or better - for first time multiroom subbers?

    I also have multiroom for £2.50. Was offered this when I called to cancel my multiroom subscription back in may.

    Just a quick update! The box supplied is NOT the recording version, simply a HD box. Still happy days though :)

    Thanks for the heat BTW.

    I rang up Sky about 4 weeks ago to complain about something, and after mentioning the dreaded 'V' word, they offered me the same, and a discount on my line rental, so all in all i'm paying £7 a month less, for more, so may be worth ringing and having a go anyway if you have been with Sky for a while. Heat added.

    I rang sky to see what I could do about my bill. Ended up being offered reduction in my multi room subscription to £2.50 for next 12mobths so you can get it

    I got this deal installed last week when I rang up to cancel sky. I got the regular HD recording box with two cables from the dish (so i can watch one channel and record another). It didn't immediately do it but just had to ring sky and they enabled it.

    I cancelled sky tv 12th September, they then sent me a flyer on the 18th offering me 75% off for 12 months + £50 credited to my account. obviously desperate for customers.

    Interesting. This may indicate there will be an across the board multiroom reduction sometime in the near future.

    I asked the guy and he confirmed my son won't be able to record on it, but can watch all the HD channels which we currently subscribe to. It does look a smaller unit all together too, which would confirm what he says..

    Is it one of those boxes that you can link up to the main box and watch recordings from that?

    UPDATE: I read that a multiroom box would be able to connect to your main Sky box over a network and that you would be able to watch recordings made on the main box on your mulltiroom box, but from looking on Skys website it is not currently a service that is available.

    Wierd just had a look on the sky site , they don't do a non sky+ box , and all the newer boxes are smaller , maybe thats why its £2.50, will have a google
