75% off complete sky tv package for 12 months if returning to sky.plus £50 credit

Found 16th Mar 2012
I don't really think much of Sky's hold on the market, But thought I would post this for anyone who wants to re-join Sky. I received a letter through the post offering 75% off the complete movie/sports/entertainment package for 12 months which came to £23.50. Sky will also add £50 to your account so in effect give you the first two months free. You are not committed to the full year, you can cancel at any time. I got the agent to confirm this for me.

The offer phone number is 08442 411 346

( I used say no to 0870 to get a landline number, but struggled a bit to get to the right place for the deal)

I know this is going to get slated by sky haters, but if you are really missing your sky its an offer that will take some beating (plus its the only place for F1 this year)
Good Luck

Anyone called this number for Sky? 020 7126 7020

I got the same letter....
If Sky had offered me a deal like this before I left them I would have taken the deal... But I am now with Virgin and to be honest even if I wasnt tied into a new contract with Virgin I wouldnt go back to Sky.

I got this deal as well, also got confirmation it is a monthly rolling contract! Very happy!

Nice old Sky logo there!

This tempted me back. Good deal but customer specific I think.

i was offered 50% yesterday with a monthly cost of 26.50. how is this 75% working out 23.50?

"...(plus its the only place for F1 this year)..."
Err, no, I'm sure I've seen some promo material advertising Sky F1 also on Virgin.

Maybe your deal didnt include all of the movies and all the sports packages ?

Yes if you have the sports collection with Virgin then the F1 channel is free....

sky world 3d is £53 a month. hd pack is £10.25 a month. Total £63.25 month. 75% of this isnt £23.50. Does it include something ive missed like espn? Only want to know cos im gonna ring em and try my luck at getting 75% off as was told yesterday 50% is the most they are offering to customers at the moment. thanks

Full Sky package is £53. Take off 75% = £13.25 add £10.25 for HD comes to £23.50

Next

just worked it out. the tv package has 75% off. £53 = 13.25. plus 10.25 for the hd pack. gonna ring them now to see if i can get it.

cheers siad

You're welcome, hope you're successful, good deal

I got this letter today and immediately cancelled my Virgin V+ subscription. I honnestly prefer Virgin, but £23.50 x12 months for the FULL Sky World package including all Sports, Movies and HD channels seemed damn good to me.

I would rather give my money to Richard Branson instead of the Aussie Mafiosa, and usually Virgin are much better value (and the Tivo box is better too), but the savings are just too good. In 12 months I will jump back to Virgin.

I tried this they said i need a letter to prove it as i haven't got one im no go ..
Edited by: "shacal" 16th Mar 2012

no go here to. the offer i signed upto yesterday was
sky world £26.50

hi,
the letter does not have any codes on it so difficult to prove it, also dont forget to make sure you get £50 credit into your account, again the sales guy verified this to me. so actually over the year it works out at less than £20.
sorry about F1 comment, i,m coming back from bt vision so never thought about other options available. (virgin is a wish in the stix)

Great offer. My 12 months half price is up soon, might try it see what they say. If there are no codes on the letter could someone scan it in for us please? Ta

Will they throw in a new HD Box for upstairs. Standard crrapy One up there

Original Poster

think if you get equipment (he did ask if mine was still ok) then you get tied in for 12 months- but still with the discount. never mentioned multi room deal

When did you get the letters, we cancelled last month and would go back with an offer like this.
@rookie1963 was that the gist of the letter you received?

Anyone had any luck with this without a letter?

Original Poster

got the letter today 16th.Judging by my past experiences with sky they try to keep you, or get you back. very unfair on all the customers who just stump up the full amount every month.

Can anyone upload the letter so I have a reference when I call them thanks

i recently cancelled hoping for a letter now

does this include sky broadband and sky talk ? i just signed up for it alone for £17.50 pm

would it work if i was to current deal ( i am not in a contract) and get this one after the 30days cancellation period ? or will the offfer expire ?

will try it out ! do i need the letter ?

Does HD in bedroom and downstairs cost £10.25 twice?

Ta for the reply, have to see what the postman brings, else might try my luck on the phone

will ring them tomorrow , dont mind the 12 month contract as my box blew up so will need a new box.

I will give them a call for that price

Very good deal I got the letter too but I sold my hd box and bought a used humax freesat hd box. I have not missed sky one bit and I pay no monthly subscription so unless they give it me for free I won't be going back.

wont make any difference. You wont be on their marketing database of customers sent the letter as others have shown.

customer specific so not really a deal tbh

I just rang 020 7126 7020 (off say no to 0870) (same connection as 0844 241 4141) and followed what OP said and got exactly the same deal. Asked for the 12 month contract so sorted for 12 months and £50 credit to account. Thanks OP heat added.

good for those who left sky

Wow, just phoned Virgin to see if they had any offers and they didn't belived me when I told them about this, the best they could do was give me a couple of months free if I renew.

I cancelled sky on 4th March and its due to run out 5th April (30 days notice). Wondering wether or not to 1) ring them and try to get this deal 2) let it cancel and hope to get a letter offering something soon or 3) not bother and save a ton of money...lol

I only cancelled cos my half price offer expired and all they could offer was £15 off per month if I transfered my line rental from bt, I declined and cancelled and they could do no more.

Mind you, I did get an email asking what they did wrong for me to cancel and a questionaire which at the end asked if they were to do an offer would I return?...so I'm half expecting a call from Sky soon anyway ;-)

75% off would be great, but doubt I'd get that by ringing up at this point as technically I'm still a sky customer till 5th April.

Wonder how Tightpants is getting on with his sky? Lol

i am out of contract with sky but still pay monthly. can i get this discount if i phone them up and say i want to leave?

I hate sky's marketing, they wonder why subscribers get miffed. I once called to get a deal posted on here for 3mths half price movies, they said it could not be done and so i told them i was cancelling. I expected the usual retention crap to start but they just cancelled!!! Got a bit of a roasting off of the OH and rang after 20 days to cancel the cancelation. Then to add insult to injury, I got a call a week or so later offering me 6mths movies half price!?!? I did the right thing and told em to shove it..... cut nose off to spite face but it felt good at the time
