Sky+ HD box for FREE for 12 months plus FREE installation

Found 5th Mar 2010
Hi, Sky just called and asked me if I would be interested in a free Sky+ HD box plus free installation. Free for 12 months, after that I can cancel. I presume I would be able to use it as a normal (no +, no HD) box after that. Don't have a HD TV so don't think that it would make any difference to me. But probably good to have just in case my current box gives up ghost. Or connect to another TV set in the house. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Are you been serious?

Sky offering everything for free including 12 months subscription or do you just mean the sky HD subscription?

If thats the case then I think someone was winding you up or trying to con you.

hmm sounds odd the hd is already £10 a month on top of your normal sub
hmmmmmmmm

if sky had the temerity to call me this late at night I would not be impressed....

No the OP said BOX and INSTALLATION for free, not the HD pack nor the subscription.

Well, I did ask her about charges and she said there were none. She will call me again tomorrow.

free for 12 months is the subscription no?

There have been posts all over another forum I use about this, aswell as a few on here.

Its a real deal - Free sky + hd, Free installation and free 12 month subscription to the hd channels

Apparently a reward for loyalty of long term customers?!

ah thats cool, just not 100% clear from the title. But thats awesome deal if so, as long as you dont mind being tied to another 12 month contract.

It'll just be the £10 HD premium..... not the channel packages.

Inb4 oops you were right.

I have been with them since 2006, the only time I went for the full package was over this last xmas. Generally go for 4 entertainment packs and add sky sports for several months, always cancel in May, usually get a 3month half-price offer around October.

Nearly forgot: And cancelled once, but on the last day they came back to me with free sky sports for three months

Yeah that was why I put ?!

A few other people who've posted about this have only been with Sky for just over a year yet were still told this lol

Makes more sense for the HD subscription to be free for 12 months, I though you meant all the channels too - that would be nice

I got the same deal earlier on today! I posted about it here hotukdeals.com/ite…-hd

Im getting mine installed on Tuesday! Its freeeeeeeee

Also, Ive only been a sky customer for 10 months and got the free sky plus box last April and got this offer today! Also got 10% off Sports back in August for 6 months

How come the installation is not free? Is it not just a question of swapping your current box (in my case it's a non-plus box) with the new one? Surely a 5-minute job?

The installation should be free.

My deal I got was Free Sky HD box, plus free installation, and free hd subscription for 12 months.

So, basically Ill keep paying what I already pay for Sky the now but I get it in HD!

you posted the deal as including free installation but am guessing you mean generally why do they charge

the answer to that is probably because they can

Ive also been offered this.. get installed on friday .. Not costing a penny.. Im currently on a monthly rolling contract of half price sports aswell.. (which is usually up after 3 months)
Sky seem to finally be taking care of SOME of the existing customers..

Just had a call from Sky offering free HD box and installation. I enquired about the free 12 months HD subscription charge also and they advised that they could not offer this free.

I told them I would think about it and asked them to ring back tomorrow. Hopefully they will have changed their minds by then. :x
