    I currently have the variety bundle at £31.05 so if I switch to the entertainment bundle at £20 what channels will I lose?
    over 73 but not over the hill.

    I have Sky Original at £22.50 a month - I would assume thus I'll be seeing a bill reduction - but will be setting a reminder to call Sky

    The kids channels (an extra £5) and F1 (if you get that).

    Nope, not without calling them.

    Wonder what would happen if you wanted Kids, Box sets and HD? Presumable that's £15 extra a month? The article suggests you can only have one of the three.

    On the other hand... Sky are clearly concerned about churn by dramatically reducing prices like this and simplifying things when compared to lots of other services it looks very expensive now for hundreds of channels you may or may not watch.
  • Fed up of sky, I got a deal £19.20 for Variety, this was called a offer and i was charged £10! Will see what new year brings.

    Not sure how you came to that conclusion, you can mix and match any combination.

    Just flat out refuse to pay the '£10 admin fee' every single time regardless of the offer.


    You are on a discounted package anyway as the new Entertainment is the same as Variety except you get the kids and F1 (I think) for £19.20 against the £25 full price of the new package.
