Found 31st Jul 2013
Just wondering if anyone knows how easy this might be?

my contract is up end of august and I am paying around £65 a month atm, but I now want the sports again as football season is about to begin.

They currently have a summer sale where you get half price for 12 months, so the package with sports and movies etc will be £65 a month for a year.
Could I cancel mine and then get my other half to subscribe the same day, or is there a waiting period or anything like that?

Any info will be appreciated, thanks

I suppose it should work, your partner i assume will have a different name so he would be a new customer. If you cancel and it doesn't work you can always sign up again.
you can get sky football, movies, TV, internet and phone for about forty four a month on a twelve month deal on here (search two tb) and remove the box to standard box its free installation too.

nun pad broken =(
@chavkiller

do you have a link, i cant seem to find anything mate
Apologies if im stating the obvious but have you called them and asked for 'loyal customer' offers?

I was paying £68, for L, tv, telephone and BB (20mb) + Asian package + line rental.

Called last week, all they could offer me was update the BB to 30mb + new super hub for £60.90 + £20 installation (why they want £20 to plug one cable in is beyond me). I didn't like the sound of this offer, so said would think about it. .... another week passed purely because i was busy and didnt have time to call back.

Called them again on friday - i said same as before, 'what offers have you got running for existing customers?' + added in "sky keep pestering me to come back as a previous customer" < not entirely true hehehe.
The nice chap on the other end had a look at my account of 5yrs - and came back with

L TV + L telephone + 30mb (+new super hub) = £58 (approx) x 12mths ... £10 saved was a good start for me.

then i said, can i pay line rental up front normally 14.99 x 12 = £179.88, but up front is £120 saving nearly £59.

so by the end the total inc line rental, came to £43.30 - result i would say

Bottom line is call them few times might be less hassle than signing up and cancelling.

I had to give notice on my virgin deal as the retention team could'nt better the £11pm discount i currently had, did that on a saturday got a call on the monday they beat the deal i had found using sky/bt & a couple of offer codes, i now pay £66pm for xl tv, sport movies, & HD, tivo box, v+ box in the bedroom, phone & BB
well I have called the retention team, and had an absolute **** of a woman on the other end of the phone, I tried to explain I wanted a similar deal to the one on their website, which is basically everything, fastest broadband etc. For £49.50 a month for 12 months, then £99 a month after that, plus £14.99 line rental.

So £65 a month for a year, which is £1 cheaper than I pay, and I currently have 60Mb broadband and no sports or movies, she sat and argues that I already had a better deal than new customers and I am stupid to ask for another deal. I had to ask her to actually get out a pen and paper and write it all down, and actually look at the maths, and she still maintained I was an idiot.

So 30 days notice is in, currently looking for a deal on sky or bt, if anyone has any info, it would be much appreciated lol
