Need to get Phone/Broadband/TV package - Is Sky the best for this

Found 15th Sep 2009
Morning All,

I'm moving to my new place in a few days and I'm looking into getting Sky+HD, with the Sky Landline and Unlimitied boradband!.

I was just wondering what people pay for this package and if there are any offers going on?

I was quoted about £70 for the full sky tv pack, Unlimited broadband and Free weekend & Evening Calls

Also do sky still do the recommend a friend deal?

There's no active line at the moment! But something that the sales rep said was that they could sort that out for me!

Free line rental for 6 months then £11.99 a month after that

Sky TV package was £57 a month
Sky Phone was free for weekday/Evening free calls
Unlimited Broadband was £10

Then it was free installation and i think he said something like £30 or £40 for the sky box

I'd also be looking to get sky multiroom if the deals is right!

Now this is the situation. At my current Address (Parents home) we have sky plus with multiroom so i'm trying to get a deal where they can upgrade from Sky plus to Sky HD with minimal costs (i.e no costs)

so thats everything i think!

tbh what the Sky rep offered you isn't that good.

Going through Quidco, you'd get the following

Sky+HD Box - £49 (free installation)
Sky World Subscription - £47.50 p.m
HD Subscription - £10.00 p.m
Sky BB Unlimited - £10.00 p.m
Sky Line Rental - £11.00 p.m
Sky Talk Freetime - Free

+ £50.00 Tesco giftcard
+ £95.00 Quidco


So would work out at £49 upfront, and then £78.50 per month.

I know it doesn't have 6 month's free line rental (they did offer this online before) but it works out to be a much better offer

Right,

Same deal as you were told, only way you can get free HD box is if you take out multiroom

Multiroom room is 9.75 extra per month and you get a standard sky box free.

He also mentioned that to get sky to connect the line it will be 39 quid, Birmingham rep should of told you that
