    Hi all
    My contract has just ended and prices will be going up this month to:
    • Sky Entertainment £28
    • Sky Box Sets £4
    • Sky Sports - Complete Pack £22
    • Sky Cinema £10
    • Sky Sports HD £2
    • Sky HD £5
    • Sky Q Multiscreen Pack £11
    TOTAL £82/month
    I also subscribe to Netflix (4 devices) for £13.99/month making a total of £95.99
    I've contacted SKY retentions by chat and been offered:
    • Signature £16 Normally £31
    • Ultimate TV £5 (netflix)
    • HD £3 Normally £7
    • UHD £4
    • Sports £19 Normally £32
    • Multiscreen £15

    TOTAL £62/month and would include the premium version of Netflix.

    I make this a saving of £33.99/month

    What do you think?

    Thanks, Steve

    Could somebody give me some advice please - i gave my cancellation notice a few days ago (from a TV and broadband and phone deal) and have since gone to the mydeals website for their improved offer. The problem is that they are only offering a TV deal. Does this page ever also offer a broadband deal too as I’d rather keep my supplier for both TV and broadband the same.

    Thank in advance

    Sky generally won’t do a deal on broadband for second term it’s always best to move broadband to new supplier

    Woohoo!!! Ok, have just got off from Sky Chat online with a new deal i'm happy with.
    All Sky Q 2TB with 4 mini boxes(Already got)
    Signature 20
    HD and UHD Free
    Ultimate(Netflix) 5
    Multiscreen 10
    Sports 14
    TV Total £49
    Ultrafast Broadband 100 Mbps Guaranteed £27
    £10 Admin charge(Tried my hardest but wouldnt drop this-they already took £10 off-should be 20)
    So total cost is £76 per month

    I believe I scraped every last drop out of them.
    It took a good few hours over 2 days, and one thing to note is TV and Broadband are completely different, you get no better deal doing them at the same time.
    Thats me done for another 18 months!!

    Sky are so frustrating with their differing offers for differing people. What you get discounted heavily I get others discounted for but they all end up roughly the same. They have offered me today (during my cancellation month) the following:

    sky signature £17
    Netflix ultimate £5
    Kids £2
    HD £3
    67mb broadband £25
    multiscreen £11

    I forgot to ask them if the multiscreen then included the supply of a new mini Sky Q box which I returned a few months ago after dropping multiscreen. They didn't mention sports even though I queried it.

    I think they move the discounts about so there is no one price you can say is the base price. This seems to be the best we can get, especially the ultrafast broadband, i am super happy with that

    Glad you're happy, I'd prefer paying £2 more for 100mb fibre and paying less for my HD and multiscreen.

    Have the old Sky Entertainment + HD for £18/mo, recently (2mo ago) negotiated parents to Sky Signature + HD for £17 with no admin fee. 

    Just got offered £20/mo on 18 month for my account as offer expires next month, have cancelled and will wait near the end to see if they can lower.

    @ax1999Can you tell me how did you get those prices? I know someone who hasn't got Sky and is looking for something similar.
