if you have a read here:


people may be able to help more if you give a little more info.

(a please and thankyou wouldn't go amiss either :p) lol


Someone is selling one in the 'For Sale or Trade' forum.

I have just been asked to pay £8 a month to protect against problems with mine. I really think I pay enough to Sky already.

If you had a box and the reason you need another one is because of a fault, I got a free replacement by standing my ground and telling them I would cancel my subscription.

Thanks, I asked the selling of the one in the trade and sale forum, just await a reply. But wouldnt mind a new box

My son's Sky box gave up the ghost recently, it was getting on in years. I phoned Sky they offered a new box for over £150. I refused. In the end, I phoned Sky again and arranged an engineer to call (cost was £57 I think). He came out, said box was dead and replaced with a brand new one! Saved myself nearly £100!

Hi Max, I had the same thing. They wanted to charge £250, then £150, then £90 and finally they said they would give me a recon box with 3 month warranty.

Well done on the £100 saving!
