Free sky HD box and installation for existing customers without multiroom

11 replies
Found 10th Mar 2010
So i called sky this evening and i threatened to cancel with them and i managed to get a free hd box, as all customers can, but with free installation which is normally £60.00, i had to pay £15.00 over the telephone using my debit card but they have put £15.00 credit straight onto my sky account so the next direct debit payment will be £15.00 less than normal.
Not sure why they had to do it this way but i was'nt going to argue, just made sure i got all of the advisors details incase the £15.00 did not show on the account.
I did have to speak to the cancelations department but i managed to get this out of them.
It is possible you just need to speak to the right person.

But now you have to pay an extra £10 a month for HD, so in 6 months their "free installation" will be paid off and after that the £10 a month you pay them is profit for them.

not sure if the other offer of 12 months half price with that u can get a free sky hd box, the hd pack , plus all channels, sports and movies, might be worth a look through threads to see if its still valid, alot better than offer you were offered by sky,

Just a standard tv package paying £21.00 per month, which will now go to £31.00 with the HD.
Our phone and broadband are with another provider.

yup certainly was

what most people did was cancel their contracts and re sign up with that offer, abviously if you have been with them for 12months , if u were still in contract its no use to you
