Try phoning sky and asking for a deal, they can sometimes be pretty good. I managed to get the HD box, free install and free HD pack for 12 months a while back, there was a thread about it on here somewhere.....

Might also be worth mentioning that you're thinking about Virgin aswell...

If you want HD channels...stick with Sky and pay the extra. If your wanting just the plus benefits (pause/rewind etc.)...i'd say Virgin as can record 2 channels at same time whilst watching another.

In my opinion sky is far better and worth paying the extra £10 for.
I have had Virgin in past but not with V+ but will still go with Sky anyday

Tight git :whistling:














As above, if you care about HD then it has to be Sky.

True...if anything like the sky warranty company I worked for as a Team Leader if we knew the box was broken we would just send a refurb one and let you 'throw' away the old one. Although we only replaced like for like. :thumbsup:

they give you a sky+HD box now if you're old sky+ is broken - you just have to pay the subscription costs for the other HD channels
