    We're on the basic Sky package, we pay £23 pcm - I need to check when it's due for renewal but is there any chance of getting a discount on such a basic package, thank you :)

    You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time but you can never please all of the people all of the time

    There's always a deal I think. :)  But it's easier in a way when you have more. Ask and see what they offer, but still might be you have to cancel - you don't have to go through with it.

    Hello.
    I've been with Sky TV for 13 years.
    I'm locked into broadband elsewhere for another year, so can't take this from Sky at the moment.
    I've renegotiated the price I've paid over the years at the end of various contacts, but have never cancelled before.
    My most recent offer prior to cancellation after a bit of discussion with the "cancellation advisor" was:
    Sky Signature & HD: £30 or Sky Signature (including Netflix) & HD £32 (I don't want any other options / services)
    I said this was too much and cancelled giving 31 days notice.
    Is the above offer reasonable? How much lower should I try to achieve?
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

    It's worth looking back through previous posts (start at say page 422) to see what other people have negotiated.

    You will find some people have Signature at around £15 but you have to take into account that they have other services which allows Sky to charge Signature lower.

    What are you currently paying? I’m on basic signature,kids,hd,box sets (no sky Q) at £19  goes up to £36 in September.  Giving 31 days notice tomorrow. Aiming for same £ or less if possible. Or trying to get sports for circa £25.

    Thanks. 
    I was paying £30 for Sky Sig on Sky Q & HD (no Netflix).
    The renewal offer was £33, then £32 after which I was transferred to the cancellation person who offered £31, then £30 or £32 with Netflix at which it stuck with no further offer so I was invited to take it or leave it. 
    I then gave 31 days notice of cancellation. 
    Do you think I'll improve on where I am currently?

    People should be paying no more than 
    sky signature £13 to £15
    hd free to £1
    kids £1 to £2
    Sky sports £10
    Sky cinema £5
    bt sport £10 to £13
    netflix £3 to £4
    multiscreen £7 to £10

    usually these prices are given when you have given notice to cancel and in some cases fully cancelled

    If you look back through the pages here to see what people have actually agreed nobody has got signature on its own for £13. I have never seen anything like those prices for BT Sport. I would have been happy for Sky to match the Plusnet price of £15 for BT Sport but they would not go anywhere near it!

    I have Signature on its own for £14(no admin fee) there was an issue so they gave me a £20 credit so £13pcm for the year. NB. There will probably be a price rise next April.
