We tried this about five months ago to get free sky+, didn't work for us, got disconnected. Four months on we gave in and paid £49 for + and install (next week).

I got it for free doing this, my old man tried last week and they wouldn't budge. He's proper stubborn. So his sky is getting d/c on 4th Jan. Can't say I blame him I've been with Sky <3 years, he's been with them a very long time (before digital and when the movie channel was free).
So it's very hitty missy.

Likewise, my Dad's is out of contract on the 8th Jan - and told him to cancel and get a $ky + box free. When he started his subscription, they refused a 6 month half price offer saying it had finished, but later found out it hadnt. Wasnt impressed and needless to say they refused to do anything.

Im just telling him to say he's going back to Virgin as they have offered a free V-box and misses his football on Setanta which is included, so feels cheated and paying too much. Whilst he wont be doing that, its very plausable. They will offer a $ky+ box for sure, but hopefully some other incentive - especially as he is on the full package at £45 per month. And if they dont, I'll suggest he cancels and gets a freeview box with recorder and save his money!!!

My old man used the Setanta argument (it's free) but they where having none of it. He'll not go to VM (we both work for BT) looks like he'll be moving His BT Vision downstairs.

If they dont budge just say you'll reconsider leaving and hang up. Then call 2 mins later and you'll talk to someone else who'll hopefully offer something. Thats what happened to me. Oh and dont go to their normal Customer Service, go to their Customer retentions departments/customer cancellations as only they can be felxible with deals where as normal CS cant.
