    I won't be doing that and will stay away this time and never return if the only option is Q which gives me nothing of use, for a large fee.

    Hi guys

    i have some discount on my sky and beleive they will end in jan and sky sports deal would end in march

    went to upgrade and saw below offers. It doesnt say it will expire in jan or march. Am i right to asssume its 18 months at that price? as sky have said no it will reduce but it doesnt say anywhere it will reduce in fact says 18month contract next to new monthly figure

    Current monthly cost £40
    without offers £80

    what youve added £9
    new monthly costs £52
    new 18 month minimum subscriptions

    one off cost £115
    equipment no cost

    Any ideas if my monthly fee will always be £52 or go up?

    I'm guessing that's just you playing about with the upgrade options on your account? It's just saying that if you do change your package you'll be on a new 18 month contract at the £52 price point. What's the £115 for?

    If the offers don't increase i will just stay away, really not that bothered anymore by the offering, Sky Q not of any interest at all.

    So you're agreeing with me, you can't get a partial refund.

    Help! This any good?!
    Iím out of contract with sky. Only have original bundle and unlimited broadband and telephone. Was paying £50/month. Spoke to someone on online chat today. Kept trying to sell me boxsets which I donít want. Got offered to keep original package with fibre unlimited at £44/month. Was hoping for more like a box or cheap cinema deal. Wouldnít give me a Q box - only on £50/month plus £20 set up. Could get cinema at £10/month but everyone being offered that at mo so didnít seem like a good deal. I decided to say Iíll wait and speak to the other half. Was I foolish?! Does anyone think I can get better than the £44/month deal? I played the BT card saying same package is £10 less but he wasnít budging. Any help/advice?! Thanks.

    Using you bill to haggle - Not an easy task anymore!
    I usually use my billing information to help me haggle... Having info to hand is always good.... BUT I have noticed Sky have changed the way they present the bills. There is no breakdown at all... I have a HD box but now the HD is not working I wanted to know if I can get it removed and negotiate a new contract at the same time... I can't even make out what i am paying for!

    Am I paying extra for HD? God only knows!

    ...Looks like the trend, making it hard to get info, is starting to creep in again.. Looked at Microsoft billing - had to put a search in to find where my billing info was!

    Does anyone know how much is is to upgrade to sky q as existing customer? Been without sky since last february, and cant get a decent deal from win back for Q, only 35% off tv.

    Just had email offer (ends tomorrow) 60% off 18 months tv deal and £7.50 for cinema on rolling contract, so would it be better to accept this then do upgrade to Q, and what should I expect to accept? Thanks

    Been off for 24 days and no offers this time. I just miss stop and fast;soon remedied when I can bend down to sort out the Humax.


    It has no HD,but having a 42" screen it hardly makes any difference and I often used SD on Sky for a faster download anyway.
