You also need a dual LMB that goes on the dish and another cable from the dish to the box.

The only people i know of that have got a free box out of them is from threatening to cancel and getting put through to the retentions department. Worth a try, will be trying it later this month myself :thumbsup:

I bought my Sky+ box from Comet. It was £59 instead of at least £99 Sky was quoting for the same box. I was upgrading to multiroom so I also got free installation.

Not sure if these offers are still on though.

as above the best option appears to be to ask to cancel. they will put you through to retentions who will try to persuade you to stay. if you tell them that you're cancelling because you and your OH are arguing over what to watch then they'll ask if you've considered Sky+ tell them you have but you're concerned with the cost. they'll probably offer you a recon box for free but if you push you may get a new one instead
HTH

I called them before xmas and said i wanted to cancel as i didnt really have time to watch the programs i wanted to watch,they put me through to another dept and they said as a xmas gift from sky they would give me sky+ free,told my brother and it worked for him also,give it a try.

yh i was thinking about doing that. suppose its worth a try i normally do that with my phone contract and it works

I'm in my 30 day notice period, cos I wanted sky + and they quoted £150 and £60 installation over the phone, told them I wanted to cancel and spoke to retentions they said ok cant do any better I will cancel you, im due to be switched off on the 20th and have had no other offers or deals to stay!!

I called to cancel i have the full package and have had it for years . They gave me sky+ for £69 they said it should have cost £250

its probaly cause ur a west ham supporter! ha

Yeah maybe, it appears we have to work hard for everything!!

whta phone numbers you using i keep getting the indian call centres and tried 3 times and thay will not move from £160

i herd there is a scotish number is better is this true ??? and if so whats the number

i did the old cancel trick and got sky plus free. Id consider letting the cancellation ride if you had no joy,
and live without for a few weeks. THey will be back i can assure you of that.

Dont mention you want sky plus is my tip just say you cant really afford it, dont get time to watch much etc.

I had free sky sports for a year and then free sky plus box so next time i aim to get free HD although thats some time away at the mo,....

I always look it up on the "say no to 0870" website I think there are quite a few for different sky places.
