This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I just spoke to Sky sales to purchase an additional Sky Q mini box for the kitchen. Normally these are £99 plus engineers fee of £60 online. I just got an additional box for £75 self install. It’s only available over the phone - live chat couldn’t do it. Number I called is 0333 7591 018 As a reminder if you already have Sky Q multiroom there’s no additional subscription costs

So you’re paying £75 for a box you don’t own! Sounds like a deal,

Correct..the box belongs to Sky.
It was only £69 last year

Same as above . I rang up and got a 3rd box for £69 with self install
Was this added to your bill or did you pay upfront? I’m about to phone up but haven’t got my debit card with me
I have 3 minis, 2 at sky q install for free and other cost £100 at the time, works great , better than old style multiroom with cables everywhere. With the 1tb skyq box only 1 other mini can be used, with the 2tb it's 2 boxes at same time.

Hey it all good if you don’t mind give your hard earned money away.

yes your correct .. but you don't pay any extra per month for an extra muti room viewing ; you can easily move this box around your house to any tv ; if anything goes wrong with the box its a straight swap for new with no charge .. So say over 3 years it would be costing you £2 a month , not too bad for an extra sky facility
I have just this Wednesday ordered one, I was only charged £69 and it should arrive today.

Before you commit to that price try and haggle. I was put through to the retentions team and was given £20 credit on account rather than a discount on the one off payment. Works out £49 overall which I am happy with.
Surely you still have to pay £12 per month for multi room!?

Yes you still need this
I'll be interested in the day when you can have more than one UHD box

Only pay it once regardless of how many boxes, but can only two can be in use at any one time

If you have a minibox for a while no way will sky want it back, how many have returned a router to sky?

Hardly giving it away, your getting something in return.

You know, you aren’t giving it away, in return Sky give you access to your subscription in another room. Or should that be free?
Got mine free when I said I was leaving to go to virgin.

You’re borrowing something in return, so basically renting if you like.

On an internal network this is less of an issue, the main UHD content coming via the dish and not your broadband connection

Well that’s mighty nice of Sky to give you access considering you’re already paying for the service to your home, all good there then must be a smoking hot deal

They do. I cancelled last year to try and get a better deal, they sent me a return box for all my equipment and emails and texts every few days with all the threats about charging......even after I re-signed up with retentions!

I didn’t claim it was a smoking hot deal. What I did say is that you aren’t giving your money away as you suggest, you are receiving something in return, which as it happens would be of benefit to some people.

Maybe Sky should pay for your tv and electricity bill while they are at it, after all, you are paying for their service in your home.

Sweet deal they charge you £45 to install it yourself
Still pricey in my opinion for an additional box, I have Sky Q 2tb and 1 x mini already and got lot for free, I dont mind contributing for a second mini but not £75, few people got these for £20 last year is seems resonable
Given how reliable Sky boxes are in my experience not owning them is a very good thing!
I have 2 x 2tb Sky hd boxes on multiroom but if I change to Sky Q I believe I will only have 2TB total storage however many mini boxes you have (apart from losing all all my saved programs.)

I had the same but to be honest I now find just the 2tb Sky q in the lounge sufficient enough, I just watched all my older recordings first then re recorded/downloaded everything else and re did all series links. Piece of p**s.
I was adamant I was not going to change to From normal HD but now find Sky Q a lot better

I have just under 1 tb of saved recordings most of which are not available to download now so until my box fails I am happy with what I have now.
I wish Sky could/will be able to copy between hard drives as I have paid for all the programs that I have saved.
Sky Q is amazing service but be careful. I was 100% promised buying an extra mini box for £100 wouldn’t add to contract. Came to cancel after my 60% offer finished and tried to say had 4 months left. Lady was very good and got in cancelled but still. Also don’t like I paid out £300 for the 2TB box and 2 mini and threaten to charge if not sent back (at least old sky could use as freebies and you owned the boxes...which you can’t go back to after having Q) Actually counter productive as now I’ll not move back to sky unless get same package (they offered my similar but keep losing sport and actually use amazon prime and Netflix more for lots less then even 60% off!)

You are right. Plus you won’t own them outright and they don’t work if you cancel sky.

I think it's a good deal the boxes are amazing little things , tiny, no wiring needed.

Realistically Sky won't ask for it back anyway and will be newer tech by that point probably so even if you could sell would be worth **** all like most Sky boxes.

I bought another one of these for my son's room, he loves it

Agreed!!!
I have this offer on my account even though I’m still on the old HD+ box. When I add it it essentially adds £12 to my monthly costs and a £75 install cost. Equipment includes a 2TB Sky Box plus the additional “free” mini. The online chat advisor said the £75 was for an engineer to install. Apparently you need a new dish. Is this right? Either way I can’t warrant the additional costs just to have Sky Q.

It is the fitting on the dish I think. We had this when we moved house and wanted to keep our hd box/contract. I set it all up but the hd box would not pick up the signal from the dish as it had the sky q fitting.

Depending on which old dish you have you may not need a new dish (if its a really old type then you will, but if its a newer version you won't) . But they will need to change the LNB to be Q compatible. Best thing you can do is when they install ask them for a hybrid LNB (request this when placing the order as the engineers normally say they have just used their last one..... Conveniently!) that way if you do decide to cancel sky Q in the future when they invariably raise prices or won't offer you a good deal, you can use the existing dish and cables with your old sky boxes again to get freesat
