    Hi,

    I'm going to do exactly the same thing today.

    Firstly, go to ]http//ww…com to get the freephone number to call Sky on!

    Secondly, threaten to cancel!! I'm looking for them to offer me Sky+ for £49 with free installation, instead of the usual £99 + £60 install. Use this as a benchmark, and see how you get on...

    Good luck, please post back with how you get on. I'll do the same.

    HTH,
    Steve

    apparently you can get sky plus free if you recommend a friend i thought you just got £30 vouchers oh well you also get £10 off if you order online

    They offered me that deal the other month. Sky+ for £49 installed

    I declined - sky is $hite at the minute, havent missed a thing on it. I've got my 90cm dish in the garden hooked upto my Technomate reciever, so I get every single premiership match for free anyways, so I'm happy

    Just done how? Did you recommend a friend or did they offer it to you anyway at £49?

    [SIZE=2]we are having problems with our sky box freezing up, so I phoned up yesterday and spoke to technical which kind of helped the problem (but the problem was still there), so I rang back-and explained the problem, she said 'I can send out an engineer to try and fix it for £65 or i can offer you sky+ at £49'[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]we went for the latter!!!no mention of the £10 a month charge that I have heard of though[/SIZE]

    do you have sky sports or movies? they only charge £10 per month if you have basic channels

    Just phoned to be told £99.00

    I went throught to Cancellations and hey presto I got it for £49.00

    Fitting next Thursday!!!

    yes we do have sky sports-hopefully we wont be charged then

    anyone else got any info on this, im moving into a new house and want a new install of sky+ :thumbsup:

    Excellent-just got sky+ for £49!!no mention of the £10-the chap said you only pay this if you downgrade your package!:thumbsup:

    I got £49 too, install next Tuesday. You do have to persevere a bit though, til they offer you the £49.

    The freephone number works fine, just to confirm it's 0800 0512595

    Steve

    If you already have sky and wish to upgrade to a sky plus box ask them about re-conditioned boxes.

    I got mine for £49 reconditioned when I first got upgraded to sky+ and you get the same 12 month warranty as with a new box

    Mine was fine for 14 months then I sold it on ebay for £129 as I moved address and it was as cheap to get a new box with a new installation

    Anyone here took up the Sky Broadband or is it better keeping TV/Internet providers seperate?

    i noticed that on Virgin Media they have a V+ box (same as sky+ box) but you can record 2 diff channels and watch a 3rd programme! Better than Sky

    What did you say to them at cancellations to get it for £49? Were you a customer from before with Sky?

    Horace,

    Are you an existing customer with sky? If so, ring up to cancel (look for the 0800 number elsewhere in this post). You'll get put through to someone who is tasked with not letting you cancel!

    Firstly, you need to be able to pretend that you want to actually cancel. I would suggest going for:-
    "I don't get enough value of out my current sky service. I asked for a skyplus quote and I was quoted £159 including install. This is far more than I expected to pay, so I'd like to give notice of my intention to cancel."
    That should work fine for you, it's more or less the lines I used.

    Steve

    so can new customers get a deal on sky+?

    virgin media looks pretty impressive, just had a browse,
