Basic TV package with Sky costs £20 more than Virgin Media!! What a rip off
Found 15th Nov 2011
Hi guys, i have sky tv with all the channels inc sports, movies, espn, hd etc and it costs £72.50 per month. I can no longer justify paying this amount for tv in todays climate. Anyway i was going to downgrade all my channels so i have the entertainment plus pack i.e. every channel apart from movies and sports. This would cost me £25 per month. If i add on hd it costs an extra £10.25 per month and ESPN an extra £12 per month. Total price would be £47.25 per month. If i took the XL tv package with virgin media it would cost me £27.50 per month. With this i would get free espn and free hd. Why are Sky not as competetive. I'm really disappointed as i phoned them and the best they can do is give me 25% off the £25 for 12 months which the agent said would bring the cost down to £18.33 per month but when i add on hd and espn its still going to cost £40.33 which is still £12.88 more expensive than the standard cost at Virgin Media. Sky need to get their act together. I'm more than happy to stay with Sky if they can match the offer of virgin media which sadly i don't think they can. What do you guys think?
