Better price than the currys deal posted earlier and deserves a deal of its own as its £15 less which is quite alot IMO. Good for those who can't get freeview. You can also try 4 mixes for 4 months i think. Use £15 voucher to achieve this price.

"This great pre-pay package not only gives you 200 free digital TV channels thats four times more than Freeview, but also 4 months of the 4 most popular Sky Entertainment Mixes. After this point you will continue to receive the Mixes for £19 a month unless you inform Sky beforehand. Even if you choose to discontinue Sky TV you can still carry on enjoying the free channels."

Voted Hot :)

Bewear: after 4months you automatically start a 12month contract if you do not cancel.

The forever part applies to Free To View occuring after 4months when you cancel.

Bear in mind this includes installation, Sky Digibox and Sky Minidish.

Good deal. Do yourself a favour, if you already have sky equipment out of contract, then disconnect it all and sell it. Sky's policy is that they will first use any existing equipment you have before giving you new stuff. This includes your sky dish, LNB, cable, and box. If you don't have any of these then they will give you a brand new install. Better to have new stuff right?

This was posted for £75 today. This is even better, good deal. heat and rep added. :thumbsup:

Voted freezing cold. Not giving Sky any of my cash. Ripoff merchants.

Had this recently when upgrading to Sky+. Engineer wanted to use my old dish and cabling and just replace the LNB and receiver.
When I said Sky had told me that is was going to be completely new kit and lets phone them to discuss he went away to his van and came back with spanking new goods so its worth challenging but I guess better safe than sorry.
Can't help wondering what he was going to do with all the new stuff that Sky had obviously provided if he didn't put it up at my place!

Great deal
#8
Is it me, or do you stop getting Channel 4 and Channel 4+1 once you've cancelled? So you can't use it as a complete replacement for a Freeview box?
banned#9
Ploddy77 is right. Freesky or whatever it is called doesn't even have all the freeview channels. I'm finding mine bad enough that I'm looking to replace it with Freeview...

You should get Channel 4 and +1 ok once you have cancelled. Same with five. You won't however get More 4, E4 and Film 4.

We got BT Vision after a decade with Sky and haven't missed it one bit. £60 is a great deal for 4 months viewing and free equipment though.

I think that after 2 years of cancelling you are a new customer in the eyes of Sky.

He'd have left it in the van for the next fit. Thing is, see it from a fitters point of view, if you go to a job and all the cable is already there and so's the dish and it normally takes you an hour to fit everything, with the stuff already there you've saved yourself 30mins and because most of the day you've been doing s**t jobs that take twice as long as normal and you may now get home for tea on time! Im sure anyone with any sort of manual work involved is pleased if there is a way of getting things done quicker.
That said if you ask for all new then yes they should give it to you! Rant over, soz! :oops:

I would recommend waiting till Freesat is launched in a couple of months - that'll force $kys hand.
Plus Freesat comes with HD channels

bought this for christmas for my mum had nothing but problems with sky charging from the off, spent the last 2 months trying to get the 2 payments they took unauthorised from her bank account refunded, you have to set up a D.D. to set it up, as soon as its up and running cancel the D.D. to prevent them doing it.

You do get Film4 nowadays, the speculation is that More4 and E4 will become free once their encryption contracts expire.
#19
Looking at the terms it says you must connect to a bt line for 12mths but before you could pay a tenner and not have to do this.
Free Sky box must be connected to a telephone line for 12 months.
#20
Hot.

Cheap way to get free view tv. Also still **** freview reception in many areas; no problem with Satellite.

Cost me over £100 to get a freeview ariel on my house with wiring to two boxes......

More4 and E4


These are on freeview ?
#21
yup...
#22
I got this offer when it first came out. I would recommend you e-mail sky 30 days before your contract end date so that they can't charge you every month. Also sky will ask for your Bank Details to set up Direct-Debits. Just say you will provide the details at a later date. Thats what I did.

I think this is the best advice I will be waiting.:thumbsup:
It looks to me that Sky are running scared of Freesat and will offer more after Freesat has been launched.:)

So sorry cold from me

Considering its going take a few years for freesat to come in, this deal is still hot

no point waiting for 3 years for freesat when you can pay £60 for the next 3 year's worth of tv

3 years ??

The launch is still on target for 31st May 2008.

Cost of the equipment is still considerably cheaper than the $ky "offer" detailed in this thread.

I asked the same q's and looking on the sky web page no you do not have to connect it to the phone line but on the jl web page it says you do so some conflicting info what i need to check out.
#31
You dont have to keep it connected to the telephone line, the main reason they say this is cos when its first installed they do a call back to make sure its installed, they also say they do random call backs to make sure the box is still in your house and not at another address. Its then down to you if you want to unplug it. It makes no odds having it plugged in, as long as you set your box to ask for pin before charging you for things(such as games) then it doesnt make no difference.
#32
its not really pay once watch forever is it, if after 4 months you lose everything except freeview(and even then you lose some of that).
so shouldnt it say pay once, get 4 months then nothing or am I missing something

They are correct as after the 4 months you still get dozens of channels free, including BBC1-4, ITV1-4, five and Sky news, that would be good enough for many people.

But if you don't have a dish installed at the moment then surely you will have the cost of that to factor in too.
#34
£60 for 4 months telly, a sat dish and cable that can be used with the new freesat system is great value. When its launched you just need to swap the sky box for a BBC HD freesat one!!

I bet the install cost for freesat would be more than £60...

Yes i know all about the phone line thing i have had sky for 15yrs now they only do the call backs to make sure its in your house if you have multi room then they do call backs for ever or if you have free sky equipment no multi room for 12ths .
The reason i asked this is because it will be going somewhere without a phone line IE my holiday home/ static caravan it looks that you are only paying for the install price £75 or with code £60 and the box and dish is free so need to keep it connected to the phone line for 12mths. Now i do not know what sky will say if you do not have a phone line ? on the sky website its costs £150 for free sat i think, and says you don't have to connect to the phone line so this seems like you are paying for the box dish install the lot with sky etc etc.

after the 4 months, do you only get the freeview channels? or all the free sky channels?
