Cancelling Sky

I know this has been discussed before in one way or another but I want specific answers for my situation if possible -
I am out of contract with sky on 30th May 2011 so I phoned today to cancel, I at least expected to be offered something slightly better but the woman just went right ahead and organised the disconnection.

The services I have with them are -
- Sky+HD with variety, knowledge pack and sky sports.
- Sky Talk unlimited.
- Broadband unlimited.

Any advice? Should I / Can I just take out a new contract with the mrs details? Thanks in advance!

Nope not a thing! Didnt even ask me why I wanted to cancel which I remember them doing when my parents cancelled.

I think your right! Mind you im working long hours these days so unless they offered me a decent deal im not really bothered. I dont ever watch it anyway!

We never get offered deals, but we're in an area with no cable so Sky know they've got us over a barrel.

Did you say something horrible to the representative or just sound a bit common? The last time I spoke with one, I got 12 months 1/2 price and no HD fee (plus a free hd box and octo LNB install). That reminds me. . . . I think im fast approaching month 11. If I dont get offered similar, I'll just cancel.

If all else fails, threaten to punch her lights out, or ring at the end of her shift when she might be a little bit happier and more accomodating! (option 1 sounds more fun though!)

I might just let it cancel tbh. Ive got a day off today but usually im working 8-6 mon-sat, cant remember the last time I watched something on sky! I could just get a cheap broadband & phone package and use the freeview hd on my tv.

I wouldnt worry, it wont be long before theyre phoning and writing to you.
#12
just ring them back and say your mrs has decided she wants you to keep sky, and ask if they can offer you something extra if you do keep it, its unlikely u will get through to the same woman

They will call you in a few days, by which time u tell them that another supplier offered a better deal, then the haggling starts! They usually wait 2-3 days, good luck

When I wanted to cancel, they gave me all sky sports for under a fiver a month and all the movie and music channels for half price and ESPN for nine pounds so all in all, 35 a month for pretty much every channel. Cudnt believe it lol
#20
Just let the cancellation go through, there is nowt worth watching on Sky, it is all repeats and adverts that you pay Murdoch for.
#21
We've got HD and multiroom on the sports package, my free HD offer finished last month so called to cancel today and gave me 6months half price on the package.
