    Is that because you gave notice to cancel first?



    I gave notice on tv, then called about phone. No success this time, so I'm leaving. (Sky are finding Q rollout and the football contract expensive, so are cutting deals, I'm told)

    You have been told wrong, the opposite right now in all honesty.

    Tried to haggle with sky today to get a account credit, they are not having it..

    50% off inc multi screen is best I could get for box sets and cinema.sports with HD. Cost was 46 per month....

    Tried to get 50 credit but not available

    Account credits are not going to be offered at this time, 50% is as good as your going to get for the month unless you cancel and wait until the final week before the cancellation is effective, it will then go to 60% but that's the lot.

    Someone poste on another thread that they had only a 50% until some time after leaving. Then came a rejected 60% off offer, which was improved by a £50 cashback, which they accepted.


    I doubt I will succumb, as being realistic , the little non-Freeview content, I watch, is not worth even reduced prices.

    All quiet on here....?
    Currently on 50% off with £100 credit, ends next month. What`s the best deals going at the moment?
    i.e. what can I realistically expect to be offered when I do the whole ringing up and cancelling palava.

    Cheers.

    ...on my final day - best direct offer via phone,letter is still 50% off for 10 months,(altho' MySky shows 50% for 12 months which others have said reverts to 10 months when you try to take it!!!).
    I'm going to let it go off UNLESS something happens today.:(

    I'm currently in my notice period of cancellation as when I contacted them to say that it's too expensive and my box is staring to fail.. I was offered a whopping 20% off for 6 months taking it from 80 something to sixty something , baring in mind I only have sports and sky go extra. No movies or phone/BB.

    The upgrade to Sky Q was considerably more expensive as an existing customer of a number of years standing than a new customer (and they get a free gift)

    Fortunately my OH is moving in so I guess she can be a new subscriber !

    Mine's been off for 2 weeks and nothing.


    To be honest, I haven't even needed to get the Humax out as I can make do with catchup and +1 programmes on Freeview. The Sky box is left on just in case I want to watch the (2?) channels not on Freeview.

    What is the initial offer people out of contract period or near to the end have recently got from Sky, without going through the cancellation charade? For TV package, broadband / phone package or combined?
