Found 11th Jan 2011
Seen this talked about on here a few times and thought i'd share mine with you

so i thought i'd ring sky to cancel my espn that costs £9 pm and thought while i'm on the phone i'd do the whole moneys a bit tight at present so i'm thinking of caneling unless they can offer me a deal,
the lady said they have 2 options at the moment i could have a 25% discount for a year but would have to sign up for a 12 month contract or i could have a 50% discount for 6 months with no contract ..... i went for the 6 month option and canceled my espn so saved 50% on my full package and £9 for espn overall a good 10 mins work

How much is a Dreambox?

50% discount is normal and you would be very unlucky not to be offered that if you have been with them a while.

Depends which one you get mate. You can get a DM500 clone for £60, or if you want a HD PVR box, you can get one from China for around £150 (DM800 clone)

I done the same the other week, rang downgraded my movies and sports, didn't get offered any incentive so cancelled the lot.

Problems with clonesMany box do share same one MAC address. This makes it impossible to have more than one box in one net.

Time Bomb destroys clones.

i guess its luck of the draw sometimes but i've been a subscriber for 10-15 years spending £80 a month so maybe that had something to do with it

I been with them 10 years or so (since I got married) always had movies, usually offload the sport in the summer months. I'll miss the PVR function of sky+ more than anything

I rang other day too and got full package half price cos i said i wanted to cancel.

While everyone is talking about Sky..what are they like? What about broadband?
We are with Talk Talk,and they so bad,the TV does not work half the time,and the wireless the same,I have had it with them,we are paying £48 mth,with phone line as well!
Before Talk Talk took over Tiscali,we was with them,they was great never any probs,and that cost £30 a mth,so Talk Talk can do one!

Sky are ok, better customer service than Virgin media, Broadband has been problem free for me and no download throttling unlike BT and Virgin.

as the DM is linux based, the MAC address can easily be changed using the command

ifconfig eth0 down ; ifconfig eth0 hw ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx ; ifconfig eth0 up

what is the number you called?

All the latest images are patched to work on the clones......

No brainer of a deal who the heck in there right mind would take 25% over 50% with less time. Hope there doing this when I get rid of mine this year in march/april.
