Free SKY Broadband for 12months only need to pay Line Rental (£14.25) and SKY HD Free for 9 months

Found 15th Dec 2012
Thought I would give SKY a call to chance my arm on the old "SKY WORLD deal that has just been listed.

To cut a long story short, I didn't get that offer, however . . . .

I got SKY UNLIMITED BROADBAND FREE for 12 months - just need to pay the line rental - which we all have to do anyway (£14.25)

I also inquired about SKY HD - got offered a 12month contract where the first 9months are FREE and then only £5.25 for the remaining 3 months

All in all a saving of over £200 for the year

Give them a call, I wasn't expecting to gain anything but now a happy bunny

Great Result - it's all about the sharing
Sky will always offer decent deals to new and existing customers if you speak to the right people. Cancellations has been my favourite department for many years - free movie pack, £2 HD pack, 25% off full tv package, 6 months free line rental etc
Someone ring up for me? I'm too scared!
I didn't do this today but the other week I got free multiroom for 12 months, free install and free sky + hd box, my other multiroom £2.50 for 12 months and sky movies half price for 3 months and to pay my line rental upfront. So sky have loads of deals to offer its just pot luck who you speak to.

Just wait out your cancellation period, they will call you the week or so before it goes off and offer you something free or discounted. Happens every time!

If you are with Sky for your phone I meant.
out of contract on my TV and broadband currently with virgin but out of contract - giving sky a call in the morning!
sky always offer a deal if you cance, I have just had 9 months free on a 12 month contract, just rand and reduced to basic package for 3 months at £21, will cancel at the end of the 3 months and get another deal...been doing it for 10 years...never fails.
The downside of flexibility is it means you won't always get the right person. I was offered 10% off my existing £68 package but I had to commit to 12 months contract. Told him no thanks....... must ring again reading this
These "deals" used to plague HUKD. I believe they were removed because of the problems they caused. Problem is they aren't deals and never have been. They are only available to individual customers and they aren't for everyone. It's not a hot deal, it's a negotiation of a new contract.

It's great the OP got a good outcome for themselves but it's just not a deal.

Sky = no traffic management, true unlimited broadband

BT = traffic management, capped limit unless you pay more

Personally I wouldn't opt for BT at all
A little patience is required sometimes with Sky. Remember, the key is getting what you actually need for a price you decide is correct for you. I just got 12 months tv inc sports and movies and multi room for £16 per month with an initial £50 credited to our account.
:-)
Can't wait till my sky contact is up in March - worst company I've ever dealt with
did sky offer a reduction in the fibre unlimited option instead of the broadband unlimited?
sky broadband for me was absolutely shocking, probably the only one worse was talktalk.

used to take 4 hours to download a movie (takes 6 mins now on virgin).
Got to be better than my BT Broadband. Half a meg connection. :-(
I got a sky+ hd box, second hd box for bedroom, free installation, all sky sportsand movie packs for £43 per month, 12 month contract. Stayed with virgin for broadband 30gb and phone- £22. £65 per month for best of both worlds, great bargains to be had out there
Maybe they are going to offer more at the moment for BB because of the plusnet deal that was recently posted :o)
cancelled sports last month got offered nothing.cancelled hd today got offered nothing.next step cancel the whole thing
They never offer me any deals!
Nice result OP. To the community: surely the sky sales team work in the same environment as any other target-based job. I've done it in travel in the past and at the end of the month you either work like crazy trying to hit your target, potentially offering customers seemingly-bargain deals. Or you're f**ked anyway and give up. I've phoned sky to cancel (a pure bluff) and the woman said "fine, i will process your request". I think i panicked and hung up.

It was just a thought that occured to me so thought i'd post it. If true, it's in the luck of the gods whether you get a big Sky hotshot or the one who's out the back 90% of the time, smoking and doing the bare minimum to stay in the job (I was the latter by the way).

Good to hear other people's experiences though. I know my brother and his wife have been on a sky world £15 p/m deal for about 6 years. Everytime they cancel they receive a call a month later asking them to come back on the same deal. I'm still paying full-whack and hate you all!
