    If the chat option isn't there, delete all the cookies relating to the Sky website.

    I had the same problem and once i deleted the cookies, the chat option button "magically" re-appeared!

    Someone cynical might suggest that Sky do this to ensure you call and they can harangue you but i couldn't possibly say that...

    Sigh. Sky were a headache to deal with. I figured I wanted to take up a deal I'd been offered last week, but in the process I was told I'd have to uncancel to go back to retentions. Now of course retentions are saying I have to go to winback, so have reinstated the cancelation (as they can't get even close). I couldn't even get the mailed-in offer I received 2 days ago in the post since my cancelation was no longer pending ...

    I gave up waiting for the email, I may well just go with the next decent offer.

    One question though -- whilst I can get offers, all except one (which I have no written notes on as it was a outbound phone call) were on condition of moving to the new entertainment pack (+hd, sports, boxed sets). Nothing wrong for now but I'm concerned leaving the f1 legacy pack isn't a good long term move. Currently the only sport I watch is f1.

    What do people think? Are offers still possible on the hd/f1 legacy or have the finally clamped down on that?

    It looks as if whilst Variety/HD/f1 on the old pack is 46.50 pcm
    Entertainment+sports+hd is 50 for a new customer (but that includes a 5pcm discount on Entertainment, 8 or so on sports, making the full price closer to 60.

    So the dilemma is if should skip any offers persuading me to switch bundles, even paying full rate as long term it's better. Any thoughts? Or if I move to the new packages is a smallish discount (enough to offset the difference) fairly easy to get each year?

    Opinions welcome. I need to close out on this!

    Update: My re-cancelation came through. Full price on the new bundle setup looks like 64 (17 more), web discount is 35.50 (so 11 less than now)

    They won't care. At the moment you won't get any cheaper than around 16 a month for entertainment package
