OK, I'm happy that Sky Q is not a deal, it's making 'loyal' customers pay more for what is essentially an update.

I am also aware there there are issues with Sky Q.

That said if you want it, then this may help you get it cheaper.

So for existing customers who have multi screen Sky want £198 for 'installing' a Sky Q box and one mini box. What you can do (according to the agent I spoke with) is order the Sky Q box and pay the outrageous £99. Then once that is installed you can request additional Mini boxes but this time it's self install and you only pay the postage saving your self £90+.

If you don't have multi screen then you can get both installed for £60, or £35 using this method.

Hope this helps someone!

Can you confirm you have done this and it works?

It's getting cold votes, but useful for me. I have voted hot but fear it's like pi55ing in the wind.

I have yet to try it unfortunately, but the tip came from a Sky agent. So treat that how you will.

Tempting if you can do that as i would need 3 mini boxes & current price of that is £396

I highly doubt that you would be able to do this.. Think about it, yes the boxes are loaned but they still cost money.. How are Sky making money??

Sky boxes arent loaned, you buy then outright. Then they charge you to fix them.. Virgin loan the boxes

The Sky Q and Mini boxes are loaned.

All previous boxes were yours after the contract ended.

All Sky Q kit is loaned to you at no cost and must be returned at the end of your subscription. Sky Q 1TB box: 700GB personal storage. Sky Q 2TB box: 1.7TB personal storage. 300GB storage reserved by Sky. Copied and pasted from sky website

Sky need to do something to encourage people to take up Sky Q. They have finally made HD channels included in the package which is good. Sky Q hasn't tempted me yet, the only main benefit, in my opinion, is recording 4 programs at once but on demand tv through my sky box means I can record most of what I want to watch and catch up on anything missed. I think Sky Q helps sky combat the openbox/skybox type systems but only if every sky customer changes over.

I can confirm this is not a deal. The sky guy I've just spoken to has never heard of it.

Got Sky Q installed last weekend. Quite clever bit of kit and had no problems so far. Only thing is the interface, takes a bit of getting used to but getting there. £42 a month for everything, 2TB & mini, all channels HD etc.

I didn't have multi room but I have just upgraded to sky q via website and only paid £30
For 2tb Sky q and a mini box £30 too have to take multi room as I didn't have that but as I had Sky go extra I'm only paying extra £7 extra a month
#22
So I can get an extra sky q mini box for £5?
#23
Thanks in advance
#24
Sorry to bring up an old thread-
I called Sky after seeing this as I want an extra mini box and they're refusing a self-install option saying it's £99 install.
£99 to literally send an engineer and press the pair button. It's a joke. How did you manage to get it for £5?
