Found 8th Aug 2010
I just rang Sky to upgrade to Sky Sports and was offered this. The guy said the offer will be going on for a while longer yet.

hotukdeals.com/dea…071 free for 12 months to returning customers, shame that they don't consider loyal ones as well for a 12 month freebie.

sounds like this is for existing customers though, so its better than nothing surely?

I've been with Sky for years & they sent me a letter telling me I had this for free until October.

For once, I was please with Sky!!

Yes better than nothing, I haven't voted cold as a deal is a deal but it would be nice if Sky got in touch with customers who had been with them years (and already had the full package) and gave them something for nothing.

Just out of interest do you already have movies? Just wondered why they assumed you would like the sports package for free for a couple of months.

be careful though ---- they will probably try and charge you when it runs out, I have just cancelled a lot of the stuff i was paying for as i realised we rarely watched a lot of the programmes we were paying for (Sky Movies for example, and now only got 3 mixes instead of 6,cancelled the HD subs also) but i also decided to only take sky sports 1 which was only £12 again making a saving ---- but i didnt realise that crafty Sky are now splitting the premier league games between the sky packages trying to encourage subscribers to pay for the whole sky sports package ---- I have been with sky now since 1999 and have never been offered any deals even when cancelling the above,was getting cheesed off at subsidising deals for new subscribers.

I got a letter for half price movies and sports for 3 months

I am on £20 package to the OP which package were you on before you rang them? Did you have movies?

Might be worth a ring then telling them I got a letter too - what's the code on it?

Why don't ppl just cancel their sunscription and sign for a new contract with a different name and credit card (same address). You can swop over once per year and get all the benefits of a new subcription including Topcashback. We did that for years.

Yeah, I'm a movie subscriber & also subscribe to Sky Sports 1.

I did downgrade my package about 6 months ago (it was a full sports package I had) so I switched to just Sky Sports1. A couple of months after that I then took out SkyHD.

I checked the letter I received & it says I won't be charged & if I wish to take out all the sports channels after the free offer has finished I can call one of their sales team & upgrade!!

I've just upgraded online to SS1 and all sports channels are working so it looks like this works for everyone. Thanks!

When the offer expires 2,3 and 4 just drop off. You don't have to cancel.

How long do you have to wait before the new subscription is activated from when the old one is cancelled?

Moved to Misc - Thanks for sharing the info/experience.

Same for me

Just phoned up and managed to get another 25% off my full bill and free HD for the next six months (was already 1/2 way through a 25% off deal, but wanted to add Sky Sports back on too)

If you already had Sky Sports 1 (like I did), you'll automatically be upgraded to the other channels, also, if you have the HD package, you'll get the channels in HD too.

Kinda glad about this because I won't be upgrading to the 2,3 and 4 channels. All that is on the others is golf, wrestling and cricket.

Wish I didn't upgrade online, as my sports channels havn't come on yet :-(

Should have done it by the red button.
