    Just contacted Sky via chat. I cancelled and was due to leave 26th Feb. My deal was Box sets HD and Sports SD, 75% off, £16.38 month. Thought I would see if they had any offers to tempt me to stay. They offered me the same deal for another 12 months, which I accepted. When I originally cancelled the best they would do was 50% off. Quite surprised,
    reading other posts, I thought those 75% deals were no longer available.

    I'm currently on Sky Q which is £86 a month for all the channels + Sky Q multiroom (needed for ultra hd). Did the whole threaten to cancel thing via chat as my contract is up in 2 weeks, and was only offered £68 a month with 18 month contract. Have to admit I expected a better offer!

    Have since gone through with the cancel and hopefully can get a better deal nearer disconnection date!

    BTW, there's no need to run 2 different posts on the same subject.

    Useless bunch of muppets. Tried calling to take out a new contract when my ex husbands one finishes in March and I can't do that until the service is turned off. Ridiculous.
    Thank you to everyone who posts comps!
    I would like to be lucky,healthy & happy in 2018!

    Ex has just cancelled SKY sub as it was in his name, finishes on 11th March. (at my request, too expensive as is, as I took over paying it for the last yr he's been gone). When can I rejoin as a new customer? (not specifically to get a 'new' deal, just to have account in my name).

    What kind of deal can I expect? I only want the Entertainment package, no add-ons that I can think of. (don't need to have sports, don't watch movies etc.) . I have the very basic box at the moment and don't want to change (although might upgrade to (2nd hand) SKY+ box when move house for the recording facility!). They don't make you upgrade the box with a new contact do they?
    Thanks

    My Sky contract has ended and they offered me 30% discount to stay when I had been on a 60% discount last year so I cancelled. Went back to them yesterday on chat 5 days before cancellation date and signed up to this deal.

    Not sure it's the best deal out there but my monthly costs are only 50p more than the last 12 months so I am happy with the cost.

    On the chat I initially asked for the bare minimum package and then asked what they could do to add on each extra service one by one. Each time asking them for a better price.

    New Deal -
    - Sky entertainment pack £11pm (Should be £25 although they offer it for £20 to new customers)
    - Sky cinema £9 (Should be £15 but they only charge £10 to new customers, not sure this is correct though now I've looked at their website!)
    - Sky Box Sets £2.50 (should be £5)
    - Sky multi-screen (we have two sky+ boxes) £12 (no discount)
    - I cancelled kids pack as we rarely us it
    - I cancelled HD as we can't download any HD content due to really rubbish broadband and we never remember to switch to HD channels when watching live telly.

    Total cost is now £34.50 for 12 month contact and they told me it will revert to £60 per month after 12 months so represents 42.5% discount if my maths are correct.

    If we had Virgin or half decent broadband I would have gone elsewhere but as we don't Sky is our best option for now.
