Just got my talktalk bill through for this month and my normal £22 bill was £76 for the month. Checked out the bill and noticed a load of calls to 090 numbers totalling in excess of £50.
Turns out my 5 year old has been playing the interactive games on SKY, (LIttle Sod). His 5 year old friend showed him how.
I thought these must be free because it doesnt ask for any pin number to play.
Phoned SKY and complained and they said send a copy of the bill to them and they will see what they can do.
Has anyone else had this problem?.
Did Sky refund any or all of the money?.
I think its wrong for it to be so easy for a child to get onto chargeable service.
I have since set the Games to pin required and at the suggestion of Sky customer services also blocked 090 numbers via TalkTalk, as you can still be charged just pressing the red button during the kids programmes.
Can't believe a 5 year old could do this. Can't help but be impressed.
