  • My 60% deal ran out and I cancelled. TV went off 4th July. Went on live chat today and was offered similar deal to previous poster. I was told 60% deal others have posted about recently has ended. I declined offer for now and will wait a while before trying again.

    Cancelled Sky 4 months ago and changed to freesat and Now. What an absolute pain in the bum this is, may have reduced our overheads by £80 per month but the daily problems we get can't be worth it. Unfortunately after laying out for two Humax freesat boxes we are now left with the choice of throwing over £450 away and re signing with Sky or staying with what we've got.

    I currently have 2 multi room sub's and the full pack. No longer need either multiroom but wanted to try getting the full pack discounted
    Should I cancel the 2 multirooms 1st, then fully cancel the package? Or jut cancel all at once?
  • 'Regular' firestick being delivered today (bought from amazon on prime day for £9.99 after using the Audible free £10 credit!!) hopefully it will become 'good' for us ;)

    The cancellation of a Multi-Room subscription won't by itself lead to Sky offering a deal on your whole package, but if you no longer need them then there is no point retaining them.

    So cancel everything and if you are offered a good deal to return then do so without the unnecessary add-ons..

    just cancelled via live chat, was offered 25% off, that was the best they could offer
    now 35% off for a year showing when I log in to My Sky, hopefully that gets better the longer I leave it
