I cancelled SKY on Dec 16th. Went online to the chat forum and was offered 20% off variety pack. I asked for 75% straight out and it was approved - pays to ask directly.

75 Comments

it's been posted a few times before but still good to remind folks. I left them for 48hrs then came back with this deal. £9.50 a month for a year and £100 credit on my account

I got 75% off for 12mths with no new contract and £100 credit

I got everything free for 12 months by saying the only thing that would bring me back to sky is if you gave it to me free. He said okay then!

When you cancel do you keep all of the equipment including sky box and any recordings? And then when you take out sky again do they just connect you back on their end and all of your equipment works as it did before?
Thanks

Have you a link to the sky
forum ?

Keep the equipment and recordings, when we left we couldn't view the recordings though, when we reconnected they could be viewed again.

so our router died, and sky want me to pay for another. WTF. They take take and take, but never give. I wish it was my contract, i cancel them., and do this. My parents are either lazy or neive

​Ok thanks I'll give this ago.

There is a massive ongoing thread in misc on this, best to keep an eye on what's the current offers. And normally you don't sign up to a new contract, make sure you don't.

Just tried,was told it expired on the 19th. Funny as I tried before for 75% off and was told it expires on the 31st and you must have been disconnected.

Not sure why people pay for Sky these days when there are so many cheap or free alternatives. FreeSat from Sky with a Humax PVR with HDD then either a Openbox with "free gift" or Cline or Kodi with Exodus sideload.

Think this is going to be my last year with sky, BT sport is taking almost everything, might just make kodi my go to app

​for me there are 2 reasons, the first being how many PVRs people I know get through, paying £200 every few years as they get slow or break, this balances out the sky cost to me when on a good discount. Also regarding Kodi I don't mind paying for content. I class it the same as downloading films or music for free, the people creating the content should get paid for it otherwise eventually they just won't bother, then what will you watch for free.

I think if you buy a good quality PVR with a decent HDD then they can last... maybe ive just been lucky but we have had the same Humax for 6yrs+ now and it hasn't skipped a beat.

I also dont mind paying for some, high quality content, pay per view... but Skys model is 95% rubbish content for a ridiculous monthly payment.

My last deal (60% discount for 12mths) l was cut off for a few hours. Went to "come back to sky" and told them what I wanted

Thanks for the reminder of this, had so many arguments with people on here who point blank refuse to believe that 60-75% or better Sky deals are available.

The key, folks, is to Actually Cancel and then see what happens, we waited until the 30 days were almost up and got (from memory) 60% off our package and £100 credit which was the best they were giving at that specific time (changes week to week).

These deals are simply not available unless you cancel. Yes btw I hear the Kodi etc comments, we do have an android box, but for about £15pm the faculty to record Sky Sports and know for sure sport can be watched instantly is worth it for us anyway.

Got rid of my Sky + and Sports for which they charged me £71 pm, now have BT with their sports for £3 pm.

''On the third day of Christmas
Rupert Murdoch gave to me,
100 sheets and discounted sky tv''

I went back online to chat and asked for £100 account credit (not expecting them to) after 5mins £100 was credited to my account!! (Also I am still out of contract which is a big bonus)

I have had my sky boxes for almost 9 years and am sure the are about to give up the ghost. They have been trying to get me to come back but I said the only way I will return is if they give me new boxes and they have flat out refused - is it worth hanging on or will they never give me new boxes I wonder....

Online chat wouldn't budge on 75% off and £100 credit, best is 60% off and £50 credit supposedly.

no new box but 75% off and £100 credit with no contract woohoo

Does anyone know what the security questions/details they ask are when you use online chat? I'm going to try this on behalf of the Bill payer. Thanks

I was looking at getting one (mainly for 3pm kick offs) when I went to my mates house for a footy game only to sit down and for it to now work. Channel was scrambled or something. Apparently it happens quite often, and I can't be asked with unreliability like that. Whereas with Sky, despite paying extortionate prices for Sports and BT Sports and still not getting full coverage, it just works. You know what to expect and no shock surprises.

So do I just phone up and threaten to leave and ask for 75% discount and £100 cash back? I'm sick of paying £50 a month for the basic package

I just did the online chat option and got offered 60% straight away. Got this bumped to 75% just by asking. After a bit of inane chat was offered £50 credit. Got this bumped to £100 by asking again. Was pretty easy really.

Any advice on best way to get sky Q, or Sky 2TB box if you're already on full (except sport & phone/broadband) package?

Yeah, make sure you're on a discounted package already. Then tell Sky that everybody seems to be getting Sky Q and you would like the same. They'll transfer you to the Sky Q department, they'll try and charge £99 per box so in my case it was going to be £198. I said no thanks as I knew other people on this forum had received two boxes for £60. They agreed to £60 no problem at all. I didn't end up getting It installed though as the engineer didn't turn up to fit it......twice! It took 13 weeks from paying the initial £60 for the install to me telling them where to stick their Sky Q and asking for my money back! I'm on a 60% off rolling tv package and I've given 30 days notice period because I'm after 75% off and £100 credit like loads on here!

Noobster101

Same for me!



Me three

If it's any use, a mate of mine has written a guide on getting Sky as cheap as possible

detoxcomic.com/art…tml

Also, binned Sky in Dec, but have already sunk £40 into 12 months of NowTV, so unless Sky offer me theirs for free, they're not beating that.
Edited by: "wideawakewesley" 30th Dec 2016

Cancelled Sky this month after going up from £22 to £44 and the best they offered me was £36 pfffff, balls to them, bought a Nexbox for £40 with Kodi on it, Sky box has not been switched on since, bye bye Sky.

Yes

I cancelled sky two days after cut off they offered me 8mths free then 11.40 a month for next four months...I had been paying over £70 a month...offered me 75% any thing else I might upgrade...told me to ring back in month 11 and they will give me same deal next year

I recently signed back up to sky.

75% discount
£50 credit
1 month rolling contract.

In total I pay £20.90 for the complete HD package

Would people say that £15 for a Sky Q 1TB box & installation and then £10/month for the original package is an okay deal?!

I find it hard to believe they would provide you with a service without you paying anything at all but well done if they really did.
