    Awful lot of effort when the current new customer deal is £20 set up and £10 a month for eighteen months for the Entertainment pack.
    Sky are MUCH more on the ball at turning them into bricks than Virgin too.
    (And yes I do work for them )

    Still if saving £2.50 a week is worth it to you .......... my time is worth more than that though ....each to their own.

    Awful lot of effort???? Really!!
    Five mins on a step ladder that end, five mins on a step ladder my end, and five mins to swap the box.... ooo yeah i was shattered from all that effort!!

    And as stated I am not a new customer so that deal is worthless to me, I asked for a Q renewing my contract, and all they would give me was £10pm off my entertainment pack, no Q unless I took out cinema or sports packs!!

    If it bricks, it bricks, not like it cost me anything ( apart from a lot of effort lol..)
    Like I said i'll then revert to my old HD box..

    I wonder how long the box will continue to work?
    Why do you care? The point is, it's evidently working now.
    I certainly don't know (and why would I?
    That's quite apparent from your persistent baseless claims that what the OP wanted to do wouldn't work.

    If you worked for them you'd know that Entertainment is priced at £20 a month not £10.

    And how exactly do you think they'll get a Q box as an existing customer as they generally quote £199 or an additional £12 a month for 18 months?

    As you say, just saw an ad on tv saying new or existing cust can have entertainment pack with Q for £32pm (£20+£12)..

    I am currently only paying £25pm for Ent pack, line rental and fibre unlimited, so i'd say yes it was worth the effort!!!
