I know a lot of people might be aware of the deal, but I just though it might be worth mentioning for those that haven't seen it.

Use the code 10DIGI.

I think it's a pretty good deal considering you get free installation and a free dish, you also get 4 sky mixes free for 4 months (REMEMBER TO CANCEL!!)... I had considered going for freesat, but you get a lot more channels with this and freesat would have worked out a lot more expensive with dish installation etc.

DESCRIPTION

This pack gives you over 200 digital channels & 4 months of 4 Sky Entertainment Mixes. Standard installation is free and must be arranged through Sky once you receive your product.

* over 200 channels
* No monthly fee
* No annual contract
* 4 months of 4 Sky TV mixes
* Standard installation & set-up

Just a heads up really because I know quite a few might already know about it.

Cheers.

if i buy this and it cant be installed as i live in a strange area could i be refunded?
#5
anybody any idea if we get owt back via quidco?
Is it standard sky box or sky + ?
Really aT A loss what to do, surely we could get this and but a humax freesat box in a years time to get HD and only pay for the box.
The installation on freesat is £80 alone
Surely this is hot???????
Anyone else help with their views?

ALso what is the difference between standard sky and sky +? please
#7
Sadly some of my favorit channels are missing on sky (Dave, Virgin 1, ....). The additional channels on sky are mainly shopping channels. If you are able to use your existing antenna, freeview is the better choice, IMO.

Yes!
It's cheaper to get the Sky dish installed and replace the box with the Humax one than it is to pay Freesat!

But it's still a wider selection of channels than you get on Freesat.
It really depends how good your existing aerial is, tbh. If you need an eaerial upgrade this'll usually cost £150 upwarsd so under these circumstances you are probably better off with the Sky deal (If you are prepared to mis out on Dave/Virgin 1, no great loss in my book)

Hi pet2000. I understand what your saying but my freeview signal is not good even with a booster it only gives 55% signal .
I thought maybe i would get a better signal via sky therefore a better picture too.
Any advise on this?

*If* you are only getting 55% via the aerial then you will get a more *reliable* service from Sky, ie less break up etc.
Picture quality should be more or less the same.
#12
Those considering this as a route to satellite dish/wiring installation for use with the alternative Freesat (the REAL "Freesat" from BBC/ITV/etc, not "Freesat from SKY") : do just remember the "Free Sky box must be connected to a telephone line for 12 months."

No idea how they police that and/or charge/fine your a/c if you don't but it is a very clear T&C.

Indeed I'd be interested to hear - as once they (Humax?) release a Freesat PVR I'll be considering this potential route :)

I do seem to get a little blocking on the pic (very rare though) but the dubbing is sometimes 2 seconds behind the mouths moving lol

Whats the best way then tracym?
What do you advise?
Pete
#19
just for a little interest factor......... anyone who finishes with sky under normal contracts get to keep all the kit ie dish and box and card. the card automatically turns into a free to air card allowing you to watch all the channels listed earlier in the thread. handy for a bedroom or kitchen connection:thumbsup:

Sky+ system has a hard drive so enables you to also record programs as well as just watch. It normally has two recievers which means you can watch one program whilstt recording another, or recored 2 programs whilst watching a pre-recorded program. It also enables you to pause and rewind live tv.
Normal sky just lets you watch tv, but with lots more channel choices, however most of the better channels require a subscription.

This product is normal sky only.

i am highly intrested in this

Can anyone find any good channels which are not on freeview? Doesn't even give you sky sports news which you get with freeview.

If I were you I would get this now. You can have the pay-tv channels free for 4 months and when that runs out, the freesat PVR should be available. Better than letting the 4 months free go to waste.

The sky box makes a telephone call during the small hours;-);-);-) Big Brother is watching you more than you think
#25
I have already got Sky installed at home.

If I buy one of these package, do you think they will add a new connection to the existing dish and wire it to my bedroom?
#26
I got this last time on offer make sure you cancel the free mixes you get before the 4 months is up i did mine immediately by e mail and it was done without any money going out. You must cancel at least one month before , be warned. Cant complain good channel list and quality

Excatly what i was thinking.

I have SKY+ Already downstairs & need to fit an aerial for FREEVIEW..

But, this is a little more tempting... I wonder if they would, seeing ihave sky already.. dont want the DISH as i have one, just the box and installed... even though its just running another cable from the LNB to the new BOX... :whistling:

Just a thought;-);-) To install and set up a satellite dish is not difficult, it goes without saying that the use of a sat meter speeds the process up, but it is not needed .
Speak to most caravanner and they will tell you that most do not use a sat finder they set the dish up on its tripod in view of the TV, a good picture is the best indicator that you are tuned in.
You can pick a sat dish and LNB etc on ebay for little money many are still in there sealed boxes like the ones Sly use ;-);-);-)
Anyone wishing to go down this route take a look at [url]www.satelliteforcaravans.co.uk[/url] this will tell you all you need to know.
Good viewing Robert

I have a new build 3 storey town house and need a new aerial point installed in the living room on the ground floor, so this seems like the perfect solution. However since the box needs to be connected to a phone point it could be problematic as the phone point is way up on the top floor.

So will Mr Sky provide me with a phone extension lead and run it all the way down the stairs and provide me with a new phone point where the sky box will be?

If so that will save me (a) £100 to get a cowboy to fit an aerial for me (b) £100 to get a cowboy to fit an extended phone point in the living room.

New customers only. Also don't give your bank details as they will take cash from your account at the end of month four. At end of month four telephone to cancel and see what sort of deal you can get to remain with Sky. Sky plus or even HD may be possible for heehaw, other than subscription charges. Certainly worked for my daughter. I bought her this deal last year when it was a six month deal and got it with a free Ipod shuffle and cashback. Basically cost very little.

It's an offer for new customers only as far as i'm aware i'm afraid! I think I read it somewhere, though I don't know how strict they'd be on partner/friend signup or whatever, it did say one per household though I think.

As far as I read, most customer services reps or technicans don't ask for it to be connected to a telephone line, I mean I've ordered this box for the bedroom, and I don't have a telephone line in there! I'll let you know anyway :oops:
#33
I'm just coming to the end of my four month contract having taken up this offer.

If you don't give them your bank details they WILL cut off your service. Give them the details and cancel with just over a month to go is the way to avoid charges (they are within their rights to charge if you don't cancel or don't give 30 days notice).

They didn't install the phone line when they put mine in. They connected it to authorise the box but then removed it. I complained about the install and they put the necessary wiring to get the box connected across the other side of the room.

Beware, although not mentioned, there is a maximum length of cable from dish to box (20 metres I think) although mine went to 25 (I asked the call centre in advance, told them the house details and they said it would be fine), it was the install team that complained. I told them to ring the centre and they reluctantly agreed. It's also a grade 2 listed building with thick walls that I told them about. The install crew didn't have a drill long enough!

It's a cheap way to get a dish installed for freesat and you get 4 months selection of extra channels for free. Bargain.

Yes and keep the dish and box (and no you don't (on this offer) need to keep the telephone line connected after the four months if you cancel))
#35
Be aware that when you order this from Dixons all you get is a little box delivered by courier which you have to wait in for. Inside is a number you phone Sky on, where you then arrange installation. Bear in mind then it does take a while to get it all installed and sorted.

The sky number is quite pricey so I'd use the no to 0870 number 01506 831006.

Also, after I had cancelled I had numerous letters telling me I was in arrears as I hadn't paid my direct debit etc. After about three calls they finally sorted out.Bunch of monkeys but the sky itself works nicely and as others said it's easy to upgrade it with a HD box nowadays. The standard box doesn't have HDMI of course.

Please.please.please.be very careful.
I bought this offer for my Mother in Law as a Christmas present.
Cancelled as per instructions. We have been receiving threatening letters from their debt recovery company, even though i have called their Customer service dept and been told it has been sorted out , for over four months.
IT's A COMPLETE NIGHTMARE....STAY CLEAR!

I completely agree, this is what I plan on doing I think because I will be wanting to get FreesatHD
#40
Okay so please, someone tell me what the deal is here. If you already have a sky box, you can get all these 200 or so free channels without paying anything. All you need is a sky card and if you don't already have one, you can get one for about £20. If you do have a sky card then you get all the free channels regardless of whether you subscribe to sky or not.

I'm probably missing something here, but can someone tell me exactly why I would want to pay £70+ for something that I can get more or less for free?
