    Sky Tv crap upgrade offers :o( Whats the best offer for Virgin?

    Been with Sky for a few years, got phone, net and full tv package.
    Best offer I've had from them is free 160Gb HD box and free installation, which seems pretty poor compared to what new customers are being offered.
    Tried the threat to cancel call, still no joy. Was hoping to get box and maybe free HD channels for a few months but the rep wasn't having any of it.. Git. :oD
    Has anybody seen any good deals for Virgin or is there anything else I can try to get more out of Sky?
    Cheers

    Phone them back, might get someone else who are more willing to offer a better package.

    But might be good to get some info from people of what offers are being put about by Virgin then to take that to Sky and see what they say.

    currently with virgin and have XL TV, XL PHONE, L BROADBAND, for £23 including line rental

    Tried that, the first rep wanted £30 for the box and £30 standard installation. He thought it was a great deal and got a bit miffed when I knocked it back.
    He said if I left Sky they would not let me take it back out for twelve months?

    The second fella I spoke to was better but still not a great deal.

    Yeah, both times. I was expecting a better deal, maybe they've got plenty of new subs with the world cup. ;o/

    We threatened to leave Virgin and they gave us 3 V+ boxes installed free and reduced our bill by £16 per month. You don't get if you don't ask !!

    I think I might give Virgin a go, if I'm not fussed I can always go back to Sky after the twelve months.

    Cancel if you live with someone then get them to have it put in, then sell the box you do have on ebay or something and get some money back for the hd sub that you pay on it.

    Well, it took a half hour of arguing but eventually we managed to cancel Sky.
    No improved deals on offer, looks like we're going to Virgin :o\
