Half price sky package for 6 months for existing customers (however i did have to call and threaten to cancel to be offered this).

After having my Sky subscription increasing steadily over the past few years and it now being £68 per month ( this is with all sky packages apart from movies, broadband and phone ) i decided to give them a call to say that i wasn't happy with what i was paying and that i was thinking about cancelling. They put me through to cancellations where i was offered half price sky package for 6 months ( this only included sky tv package, not broadband or phone ) which i accepted. It will now be costing me £22ish less per month. I will more than likely be cancelling sky at the end of this 6 months as i think the cost is too much, as long as i can get a good deal/package elsewhere. Anyway, hope this helps someone who also doesnt like the amount they are paying for their sky!

That is not a deal, thats threatening to cancel.

Standard stuff, we all do it.

After 9 years on the whole sports & movies jobbie I rang to cancel, and cancelled. They didn't offer me anything at all to tempt me to stay. Good on you OP - I don't post to criticise but it is really weird how different customers get different responses from Sky. I'm now with VM and unpopular as it may be to say, I really rate them.

I called up to cancel & was offered half price, free Sky+ & free HD for 6 months. This was just extending my existing offer for another 6 months with no no further contractual commitment.

However, it seems that Sky do not offer this to customers that are not covered by cable (aka Virgin media). Some of my friends who threatened to cancel have not been offered any good deals & all three of them were at the mercy of Sky as they are outside the cable network.

I recently asked to cancel 2 multirooms and reduce my package. I was offered my full package at half price for 6 months.

I have to agree there as i have threatened to cancel with no offers and i am not covered by Virgin Media either. Jammy sods but wait until i am then i will definately be cancelling.

I cancelled my sky a couple of days ago I have been with them for 8 years and not once have they offered me any deals until I rang to cancel. . .6 months half price and I am not in a cable area I do know of people who refused the 6 month offer and were contacted and offered 12 months half price.Personally they could offer it me half price forever they can stick it if they can't look after their loyal customers then they deserve to lose custom.

we only got sky in our area and got offered 6 months half price no contract, we do have two multi rooms. Before that we got free hd box and sky plus box and half price for a year and no 10.00 a month for the hd, i think they do what they like lol

How good are sky at sending out the marks and spencer vouchers?

Just yesterday got this deal + free line rental for 6 months. They couldn't offer 12 months half price (presumably because we can't get cable) so gave us the free line rental as a compromise.

Very good, not heard of anyone not getting them.

Tell them you are going to FreeSat and do a bit of research on channels/boxes etc, worked for me.
