£29 and no installation fee.

Plus you get the required multiroom subscription free for 6 months .

Required Multiroom?
What???

The Subscription is for the HD enablement for recording/playback/pause-livetv not for extra multiroom, unless they are offering multiroom box SEPERATELY free for 6months, but those have 12month contracts just like new Sky Installs, getting such a deal would restart a 12month contractual period anyways it would seem they want to push multiroom too considering that has a 12month contract too.

Bear in mind this will add £60+ by getting that multiroom offer over the 12month period for the payment of the last 6months of multiroom, also getting multiroom means you must have a working phoneline hooked up as Sky are worried about international licensing.

I'd advise anyone with Sky outside a contractual period, cancel Sky completely, order SkyHD online via quidco in your partners name 1 week before your current Sky is due to end and get £100 QuidCo and £25 Tesco Vouchers, after £49 for SkyHD and Install (I think) you are up £75.

We've had Sky for about 8 years now minimum..

They gave us a Sky+ box for multiroom free.

Does the Sky HD box have a Hard Drive on it?

Yeah 160GB i think, 80GB for anytime and 80GB for recordings.

kcphil;6215700

Yeah 160GB i think, 80GB for anytime and 80GB for recordings.


It's 320 gig i think - 160 for recordings and 160 for anytime (HD picture takes up more room)

I saw this last week also.

Expcept its only that price when you buy an HD TV.
If its the same thing I saw then its cold....

:?

You can turn off Anytime allowing 320gb for recordings, bearing in mind, with anytime off, 1h SDTV = 0.5% of hdd used up, 1h of HDTV = 2%, approx from my experience, while that would work out at 640hours of sdtv or 160hours of HDTV, take my estimates with a large dosage of salt

i think you are right because its says 160 gb and also says anytime recordings does not affect the recording memory... its sad becuase i cant watch most of the anytime programmes because of subscription issues , i would rather like that space for recordings but unfortunately i cant ....

Unforunately half right. You can turn off 'Anytime' but you don't get the space back. This is a reserved amount regardless, even if you upgrade the hard drive as I and many others have done.

Sorry m8 but as I have high blood pressure I must decline your sodium based advice.

A little ambiguous, but I'll check out Currys tomorrow.

I thought this was only with the purchase of a particular LCD TV??

This deal's warm for me and if the purchase of a TV is required then it's freezing cold..

Are you sure mate, I think you are being offerd a sky + box, never heard of em giving away Sky + HD for free. Check it on digital spy website, a forum dedicated for sky deals and sky tv in general. SKY will charge you a min of £49 for HD box thats the best one can manage even if you threaten to cancel, you'll be lucky to get a free install bundled with it. Other than that...HD never goes free...Damn sure mate

sky salesman in Tesco last week offered me sky+HD box for free after i informed him Virgin were offering their V+HD box free for new customers, so it's a minimum of £0 as far as i see it.

an exra £10 PM of course

I work in PC World and we do the same deal, i'ts basically supposed to be done when bought with a television set but with all the KPI's managers try pushing it on its own. for existing customers it £29 for the Sky HD box including free install and 6 months free sky multiroom and that's all in the package (i.e. existing customers must take sky multiroom as we don't sign you up to it sky do), they also charge you nothing on the day just basically registering you on the system to get a callback from sky within the next couple of weeks who will then install the box and charge you the £29 themselves, and yeah it adds £10 onto your monthly bill for the sky HD channels!

Remember, any reseller, retailer or Sky Salesman get £100 or more Comission by signing you up as a new current customer renewing onto Sky.

I've yet to see an offer either match or beat bang for your buck going via £100 QuidCo + Tesco Vouchers and getting SkyHD via QuidCo and the Sky Website, getting SkyHD free technically is impossible as you must pay the tenner a month HD surcharge.

Think that clears things up nicely :thumbsup: I only have SKY+ and the general entertainment package ( no sky movies or sport) . Sky is in my opinion the best system for reliability and software quality . NTL (sorry Virgin media, same bloody sh1t company just give them a call and speak to 1 of their well trained and enthusiastic sales people :whistling:) boxes are frustating to say the least due to poor software and free view...... well great for a second t.v in the bedroom but not the lounge if you can afford sky

Not really for me - although I am voting it hot.

I already have a discounted multiroom subscription at £5.00 per month.
so this would cost me £29 + £60 = £89.00 including the multiroom 'upgrade'
whereas the standard HD box + install is £49 + £30 = £79

;-)

anyone tell us the best deal for NEW CUSTOMERS ? I take it its probably via quid co cash-back and £17.50 plus £10 for hd subscription plus 30 for the box plus add on installation. Does that sound right guys ? The 27.50 per month sounds expensive. Anyone feel free to correct me.

:thumbsup:.

This is why i get idiots on the pohne shouting about pC world staff. If you buy anything from a reseller (that is not directly from sky), The reseller is supposed to call thier OWN RETAIL PHONE NUMBER TO ORGANISE THE INSTALLATION OF SKY PRODCUTS that they sold to thier customers.
Resellers keep telling thier customers to call sky when in fact it is the seller who is supposed to set this up for them.

yes you must buy a TV out of Curry's to get that deal, My mate had to do that. But the deal may differ now.

lol well on our systems we can basically update the customers details to include the package deal but then it prints them off a 'key facts sheet' which specifies that they will get called from sky/whoever installs the damn things to book an appointment!. for existing customers we cannot actually physically book them a slot or process anything else....don't blame us blame your own sky retailer systems!. whereas on the other hand for new customers it makes allows us to book an appointment on the systems as they have higher priority (in sky's opinion)

We don't tell anyone to call anyone :whistling:

I am in the same boat how did you get Multiroom for a fiver ??? :w00t: That itself would be a very hot deal. Did you get it forever? or just for a number of months.


With this deal you have to pay £29 for SKY HD+, £120 for HD channels and £60 for multiroom plus your normal monthly payments for your package.

Thats exactly what we did about month ago! I got the other half to cancel her Sky, then about a week before it was due to be cancelled, I ordered in my name. Managed to get a quick install date, and we were without Sky for 1 day. £100 Quidco tracked, and hopefully £25 voucher on its way.

As a side note, on the Sky website, when you are siging up to HD, it says that getting multiroom with normal Sky (i.e. not Sky+ or an additional HD box), you get the Sky box free and that a Sky+ box would be £99. I ordered this, however...they actually gave me a Sky+ box for free instead.

good deal. sky HD is a rip off from sky!

Sorry Guys - didn't mean to get you all worked up......
I got a flyer through about 8 months ago offering multiroom for half price because I only subscribed to the family pack. i.e. no movies or sports..
The extra bit - is that when I rang them they told me that I should not have been sent that offer as it was for a particular geographic region (somewhere in Wales IIRC), however they would stand by the offer.

I may have spun a yarn about leaving because sky caused too many rows about who was watching what channel and that freeview would be the answer to all my problems......

Intrigued by this, so what happens if you have sky broadband and sky talk - won't cancelling everything, then ordering in your partners name really confuse things with these services? Does it actually work ordering in your partners name? Won't sky catch on?

They haven't with me and my family/oh, also while companies are allowed to refuse service to anyone, if they were to refuse service to every ex customer ever, they would start making losses, its a bit odd really, I expect it's more of a short term abuse thing but long term they are gagging for every new customer possible.

When Freesat technology falls to what Freeview is now Sky will have no choice but to make their pricing competitive.
