Presently with telewest supreme package £15-50p month Equivalent to 6 mix sky at £21p month (although few xtra channels I think). Sky have offered 2 free months changeover plus movies over christmasplus free installation etc.
Fully expected to find sky cheaper but am surprised. Want to ring up telewest and threaten to leave for some additional goodies (we would if it was worthwhile)
Am I missing something? Why is everyone with sky not telewest if they can get it? Or is the interactive THAT good compared with telewests teleport?
We are not sports watchers or movie watchers other than Christmas. Martin's freeview though not offering enough.
I suppose logic dictates sticking with telewest - am now at a loss as to why I can threaten to leave...What am I missing????
Can anyone please explain to me where I stand with Sky?
We have been Sky customers for around 5 years and a couple of months ago upgraded to Sky+, with multiroom. It has never worked properly (although according to the engineer if it doesn't do it while he's there it technically isn't faulty :mad: )
I'm under no illusion that I'm tied in with them, and I don't seriously think they'll make any allowance for the fact that is has never worked, what I want to know is - is the box mine, or is that only after the first 12 months? Can I cancel the Sky+ and go back to "normal" Sky? We're paying £46 a month (£552 per year :eek: ) for channels we don't watch (otherwise it'd be an extra tenner because of no premium channels) a multiroom that isn't being used and a Sky+ system that doesn't do anything that Sky+ should do.
Any advice appreciated
I would threaten to leave, I have just changed from Sky to Telewest and got 3 months free and 3 months half price on there supreme package, and I didn't even try, and he said when the new box comes out with the hard drive he said he would send one out at no cost, but I will wait and see on that one. I did already use them for the internet though.
Even if they let you go you can just ring them back 5 mins later, and say you changed your mine.
If the weather is going to be as bad as they say?, I think you might have some problems with pic/quality on Sky over Christmas as well. Also they don't have a free phone to ring them up, and you seem to "press 1 for this and 2 for that" so many times before you talk to someone that can help you.
I have had both services and for the money and with the new Teleport service out I would stay and save your money, and badger Telewest right now .
PS Owey-wot hard box?
However, if you phone to cancel your entire package stating the exact reason why you are so unhappy, the cancellations department should be able to offer you another sky+ box FOC with engineer visit.
What is happening to your sky+?
There’s a trick to extend them
