    about £39 the hd+ ones sell for, postage use city link its £8
    Don't put your trust into an Experian score - it is not a number any bank will ever use & it is generally a waste of money to purchase it. They are also selling you insurance you dont need.

    I'm in the same situation and I'm going to send mine back to Sky as I found this useful link: http://help.sky.com/my-account/your-sky-equipment/recycle-your-old-sky-equipment


    Unless someone can suggest a way of making money from it myself? Would anyone be interested in buying an old box?

    Yes, loads of people-depends which box though.
    No free lunch, and no free laptop

    Please don't just give them back to Sky - they have enough money already.

    If you're considering giving them away, do so on Freecycle or Freegle.

    Please.
    Time has moved on (much quicker than it used to - or so it seems at my age) and my previous advice on residential telephony has been or is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.

    I think people are stupid if send sky box to sky they refurbishment
    and sell
    ing like new .
    When i got before installation sky engineer bring me
    refurbishment box and try install but i told him ordering new one.
    And go back to van and bring me brand new.
    Be careful
    This same BT . When i canceling contract they send me grey bag to return HOME HUB3 . Which i pay ready. They Recycling for me . YEAH RIGHT !!

    People dont send this back

    seeling on ebay , gumtree or keep like sky box and watch free channel on your old box
