First time poster, so hello to everyone!

The reason for posting now is I've just had one of those "too good to be true" moments with Sky.

Background to the tale is that I followed MSE advice around 9 months ago and cancelled my Sky package, upon which a week or so later I was offered 50% off for 10 months with no contract. That promotion was due to expire a month from today, so I rang up again to cancel.

The adviser I spoke to, after putting me on hold for a minute or so, said there'd been a glitch on their system and as a result a number of customers had been accidentally given the 50% off promotion until 2021. So basically I've got 50% off for 5 years with no contract, providing I don't change my package at any time in that period.

Now excuse me for being cynical, but I'm a firm believer that if something sounds too good to be true it usually is. But I'm not sure what the catch is, so I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this or knows what the real story is?
