My 18 month contract is ending on 19 November 2018 with Sky and I am seriously debating whether to quit (been with them since Dec 2012) as most of the TV I watch is on Freeview. The only thing I really want from Sky is the Sky Sports F1. Most of the time I watch YouTube or catchup TV through BBC iPlayer etc.


Also I really do not get why I have to pay line rental when I haven't made a phone call using the home phone in about six years.


I have been successful in the past negotiating some discounts when my contract ends but can only see myself staying with Sky if I can really nail a huge discount (50% - 60% off). Can anyone give some tips and stories on successfully getting big discounts, cheers.




Here is a breakdown of my bill:


--



TV
£48.40


--
Original
Including discounts
£18.49
Sky Sports - Complete Pack
Including discounts
£22.04
Sky Cinema
Including discounts
£7.87


--


Broadband & Talk
£33.99


--


Sky Talk Line Rental
£18.99
Sky Fibre Unlimited
Including discounts
£15.00

Total £82.39
Competion Wins 2008 - £1700 - 2009 £5300
2010- £680
