    Looks like that doesn’t include boxsets and kids though which could be another tenner.

    Just got off the phone to them and this is the best they could offer so far.

    Sky Entertainment + HD + Box Sets = £27
    Fibre Unlimited = £24

    Yes it has come down from the £82 I'll be paying from next month for pretty much the same thing but simply not good enough, I'd want another £10 off somewhere to keep me. Looks like I'll be going through with cancelling.

    Boxsets isn't listed separately anymore, it's the Ultimate pack (Boxsets & Netflix) @ £10 a month extra. As an existing customer you can certainly get Boxsets on it's own, presumably new customers would have to phone up.

    Yeah I know that but the poster was saying nobody should be paying more than £45 a month for any package of Sky TV - when in reality to get all of Sky TV (not including Netflix) it would be £55 unless you haggled on box sets & kids.

    If you got ultimate on demand & kids it would be £63 a month with the price rises too - increasing to £76pm if you wanted UHD!

    My contract ended in December and I didn't get any emails or letters. Only noticed when my bill went up and is now at £65 and its dues to go up by another £4 next months so £69!

    Was on £39.50 with 12 month contract for:
    Sky entertainment £11
    Sky Box Sets £2.50
    Sky Cinema £9
    Sky Multiscreen £12

    Rang for new deal today (took about 30 minutes to get to the right person) and was offered £10 off per month for new 18 months so £55 per month then £59 as of next month.

    Went through to cancellations and they offered £50 per month.

    I've asked them to cancel and will see if they offer me something better in next 31 days.

    OK so the best I've got so far is £45.50 for Sky Entertainment, Box Sets, HD and Sky Fibre Max broadband (incl line rental).

    It has gone from an expected £82 a month. Will I get much better if I go ahead and complete the cancellation?

    I finally got it down to £39 per month. £17 for Sky Entertainment and £1 each for HD and Box sets, £14.99 for line rental and £5.01 for Sky Fibre max. Maybe not better than others but I'm happy with it, at least for the next 18 mths anyway

    I just secured a new deal for fibre max with the retentions department after initially leaving due to the price increase. I tried to use this time to get a better deal with my TV but they said there was nothing that could be done. So I've begrudgingly accepted the price increase for entrainment and my TV package is now
    Entrainment - £13
    Complete sports in HD - £15
    Box sets - free
    HD - free
    Sky Go Extra - free

    As for my fibre max, I was paying £27 then with the price increase it would've been £29. A week after cancelling they came back with an offer of £22, which I accepted.
    So my sky bill for TV, fibre and line rental every month is £50. In addition to this I have BT sport on sky in HD for £14 a month. So the overall total is £64.

    They won't be, there's usually an offer of £3.50 for each add-on on the same page. I'm presuming you get to choose which you want at the same time as otherwise it'll be full price at £5.

    Be aware that the page with the £15 offer can automatically sign you up with no further interaction, if it does then you'll be receiving 'Thank you for signing up' emails a couple of hours after you last visited. It's not unusual according to the agent I spoke to last week when it happened to me.

    I'm scared to click checkout to have a look as it may sign me up . I may hold on a while as I only cancelled a few days ago , not sure if I will get a better offer than that though .

    I'm in the same boat as you, cancelled Friday night and sky.com/mydeal has that. However I'm currently on Sky Q and it doesn't seem to mention that on that page. I also have Fibre Max which went up loads in price which isn't mentioned there. I was offered £57 a month for box sets package and Fibre Max, but cancelled and have taken out Virgin for £52 a month (and much better internet). That's due to be installed in a month so I'll see if Sky come back with anything better before then. I'm hoping they do as I watch a lot of Sky Atlantic stuff but I won't be too sad if I have to change to Virgin instead.

    Cancelled on 30 March. Took up the offer of £15 a month entertainment, £1 he and £1 box sets with a £10 admin fee. The admin fee sticks in my throat but I'll go with it thus year

    Received an email offering a base price of £20 for entertainment plus the other upgrades like box sets for an extra £1. However the /mydeal site had it for £15. As with others in this thread I had to screenshot that but have been given it. I’m sure they didn’t mention the admin fee but will check my new bill when it appears.
