    i did a couple of years ago had no probs

    I think they do it by postcode so I don't think it would work.

    do you know how long it takes??

    check the T&Cs to see it mentions whether the offer is name specific or whether it is specific to the home address.

    i wanna hd box and seems a bit harsh to charge £60 for a 5 minute job

    You can do it, but I think I read in the thread for this offer, it takes a month to cancel the account, but the offer expires in less than 2 weeks I think. So don't think it would work this time.

    just ring them up and tell them unless they offer you the same deal you will go to another provider,be insistent and ask to be put through to the subscrirtion cancellation dept and
    tell them the same thing ,I did and bingo they put me on the new service,give them a load of bull like been with you for 10 years or whatever and this is how I get treated ,hope this helps if not cancel and put in your wifes,dads ,mothers,grandmas,daughters name

    lol worth a go will try do you think they will tho. anyone got a free phone number for them???

    My mums done it. She cancelled her sky via phone and ten mins later took out a new sky online in her boyfriends name. They give you an option of when you want installation so you could still take advantage of the good offer before it expires and cancel your original sky. Go for it, you have nothing to lose

    ...so your notice period is 30 days...what happens when the engineers comes around and sees that you have your equipment still in place? Surely this is very inconvenient when you have phonelines etc..?

    A few years back I wanted Sky and the previous tenant left a very old box, I rang up and said there was already equipment and engineer just gave me a new box(he did try and take od one but I said no as I wanted it as a spare)
