Sky TV contracts

Posted 28th Jul
We should be free to cancel tv contracts if there are price rises during the minimum term. If they agree on a price for 18 months then they should honour it. Ofcom needs ro do something about this.

Unfortunately there will be small print saying they reserve the right to increase the price once a year in line with inflation. If outside of that or additional then I believe you get 30 days from the date of them notifying you of another increase to cancel free of charge

I think
This is why sky etc keep the rises below the 10% threshold (I think it’s 10%) as above that you can walk away. You can however be sneaky if you want to leave what to do is upgrade and enter a new contract then cancel without penalty as your within your cool off period.

Or, if one signs up to an 18 month contract without reading it one should expect to pay whatever is demanded. For over 8yrs, I believe, Sky have written in the contracts that there might be one annual price rise of no more than 10%. You agree to this when you take out the contract. Same with mobile tariffs. If it’s two rises or one over 10% you have a right to leave.
it’s if they increase by 10% then you can cancel.

but this is on the package full price, not your deal price.

for example, if you’re paying £10 for a package that real cost is £20, and they up the price by £1.50, you cannot cancel.

they always up the price by 9% anyway
