phone and threaten to cancel they always give you a discount of some sort. welcome to hukd :)

So your paying £71 a month on your tv watching!!!!!!!!(including your lisence). Wowsers. Freeview is really good you know, and the kiddies don't need wrestling.
#3
i,m full package and i have multi room in 4 rooms! so i pay 101 a month madness but i do have to occupy 4 boys! :)

stop the wrestling for a start.. its summit you can do without..
movies and sports will save you another £12 iirc a month.
there are plenty of free movie channels on the normal packages without S/Movies Packages

sorry, but you want you head seeing too... personally, 2 hours a day (before/after school), is enough for any child. remove Multiroom, and save £30pm. Take away sports and/or music, kids channel could be included in a 6 mix package for £21.50pm iirc.

Please tell me that £101pm includes HD loopy woman
* Variety Pack
* Knowledge Pack
* News Pack
* Children's Pack
* Music Pack
* Style & Culture Pack
* Sky Movies Pack
* Sky Sports Pack

£46.00 pm
£40.00pm 4 multiroom boxes

So wheres the other £25 going? Broadband?

yup ring and get discount, they normally have discounts for new customers, don't give in and put your foot down, what I had to do one year was cancel and then reconnect on my wife's name so i got all the new discounts. I even told them that i was doing that the following year, they in the end gave me the same discount, tell them about you 6year loyalty, and this is how they show their appreciation, find out about offers BT are doing, I am sure you should be able to get them in your area, and tell them the prices that virgin are also offering, you usally get some fool on the other end who don't know that your area isn't covered by virgin. If you don't want to waste your time ask to speak to the supervisor straight away, if they ask why then tell them, you want to speak to some1 who can authorise something cheaper for you, and you don't want to repeat yourself, to 10 different people. Be polite but be firm. You should get something!! I always have done (touch wood)

still way to much.. Broadband should be free (PM me your postcode). Line Rental is £10 + £5 for free call package.

means your paying £10 for BB, which I think you've been conned into paying. 95% of area's get FREE BB service.

6 pc in one household is ludicous - im sorry, it just is. that said, all depending what you use internet for (surfing, downloading music? songs? etc) the FREE BB service should suffice

Say You Want To Cancel The Movies And Sports They Should Give You It Discounted For A While They Did With Me
#11

#12

#13
you could be right i am suppose to have free bb and line rental is 10 and 5 for calls? but i know i,m always the same each month 101 as i use my mobile to make calls as they are free.

Think you got your calculations wrong. There is no extra £10.
What she is paying is correct! :whistling:
#15
sorry, my apologies 86 + rental for line, means your paying either £5 for free calls, or £5 for BB each month.

I wanna see that £101 come down to £75 at least. Dont take the first offer that they give you. demand more off. thats £1212 a year. I can watch TV, (with sky +), surf, make calls less than £450 a year.

How old are your kids
#16
my kids do lots of sports especially football and we do work for what i call our luxuries, i monitor what the kids watch and how long they watch it for and also they go to bed at a decent time with a good book to read.
#17
we live where our kids cant get out much unless as i say i do take them to their sports so it is good to come home and we each have our own space and variety of what we want to watch if we want to! as i do also like to read but i do enjoy some tv also.

yes they do in seperate rooms!
not all kids live in bliss all the time you know! :roll:
#22
i never pay for ppv or anything else ie movies or owt! and as long as they are at home happy and keeping their schoolwork and grades good i dont mind paying extra to make sure they are safe as at the end of the day they could be hanging around the streets doing goodness knows what!
#23
anyway goodnight all :)
#24
