Family member just got a new dish for free, after being with them many years.

Not sure any really needs this

I have been with them a few years and got offered a replacement at half price. I would rather risk it becoming faulty than pay £60 just incase.

The replacement would of only been £30 aswell

New dish can be bought in electrical shop + LNB for about £20 and you can buy a tuner for about a tenner. I know people who have said to sky that if they are not willing to replace their equipment for free then they can cancel the sub and have then got the dish replaced for free. I think SKY should offer this for free frankly and its why i would never subscribe to their services. They pass on peoples hard earned money to the likes of Mario Balotelli cover his car in a camouflage wrap - no thanks!

My sky box packed in and they wanted £140 to give me a new one. So I cancelled my Sky subscription there and then. Surprisingly before I got off the phone they'd provided me with a new one free of charge.
Think of it this way, they're going to charge you to replace something that you only use to receive their products. Why would you pay????

What car? That camouflage is amazing.........

Yeah I never saw it.

Must try harder next time. Wouldn't budge over the costs on the phone.

Yeah similar happened to me. My Sky box stopped working so I asked how to get a new one, they told me it would be £140. After telling them I would like to cancel my subscription I was offered a new sky box with instillation free of charge. When the repair man came he gave me a better sky box than what I had, and he fitted me a new aerial for free.

I would echo previous comments- think that cover for sky products through D+G or any other company is a complete waste of cash - was offered this a few times , to which I replied that if they did not fix it for free then I would no longer be a customer -simple as!

My box broke after 18 months and they tried charging me for a new one. I basically said if they don't give me a new one i would terminate my contract. This would of gone for the dish too.
I got a new box the following week.
Don't waste your money.

Sky will replace your dish free of charge just to keep you as a customer everyone knows that

cool story bro

Surly this is a joke!!!!!!!!

Oh dear - simple tip for you:

If your out of the one year warranty and contract, phone sky and ask them to fix it for you. If they don't, cancel your contract. They'll soon fix it got free!

Cancel contract due to the inability to fulfil it due to faults. You can do this when out of warranty and equals 12 month contract up. Sign up again later on and ask for new box?

cold an understatement, this is absolute zero.

Sky should give you one free, rip off merchants.

Go to Virgin, get free repairs and call outs

I see two cats and a goose in flight. Where have I seen this kind test before?


(This surely is spam)

Absolutely hideous.

Mario Balotelli had his Bentley painted like this.

Go to Virgin


would like to, need to find 1 in my neighbourhood, this won't be easy

Happy to contribute to the coldness of this deal. £60 is a great price compared to their usual price but considering it's not required it's a non starter. Who wants to buy my chocolate teapot for £60?

Verdict: COLD
Reason: SKY
History: YES

They are always sending this "offer" every now and again hoping to catch a few people who aren't savvy enough to play them at their own game.

The way I see it, I'm paying a sub to use their services. If they want my monthly sub, then they can provide the equipment, esp when things like the Box & router can only be used with their services (even the Freesat card is crippled). Not sure about Sky but I've seen T & Cs before stating that equipment is the property of the provider - if that's the case then the provider should replace/repair when it goes wrong!

Agree with everyone else, if something goes wrong, they can replace it for free, or lose my business. I think they know this will be the case for 90% of customers, but if they can get 10% to pay up then they had done well. A horrible tactic IMO but so many companies try it on like that.

I'm sure this post is an attempt to see how cold they get a deal to go

That picture in the deal looks like a SKY thief getting away with their customer's hard earned cash. I bet there are bag has multiples of £60 in there!

Sky ripping you off.

Cold on so many levels.
Cancel and watch them squirm.

Sky usually replace faulty equipment for free if it's a choice between doing that or losing your custom, since technically you own the equipment they might ask you to commit to a new 12 month term though.

This must be the coldest deal ever. Tell sky you want to cancel as your equipment is broken and they will do it all for free for another 12 month contract.
