    I have Netflix but not on my tv. Thinking about it tho, I pay 7.99 a month for that and I think it!!!8217;s free with VM so both sky and NF or VM will both cost 60 a month. Sky was 18 month contract only

    Phone them up and stop the cancellation on the BB/LR, then find a better deal at:

    https://broadband.moneysavingexpert.com/
    or
    https://www.uswitch.com/broadband/packages/

    If your TV has the Netflix app you can just log in or get something like an Amazon Fire TV stick.

    I don't have a smart tv, only my daughter really watches netflix on her phone/tablet. Is there any way I can have it on my tv?

    If your TV doesn't have USB inputs then for 69.99 you can get an Amazon Fire TV box which plugs into a HDMI port on the telly, there's multiple Freeview boxes (is it Freeview you use or Freesat?) that will do similar. The 7.99 Netflix sub lets you watch on two simultaneous screens at once so that's fine.

    I!!!8217;m really annoyed with Sky! Is it worth calling to complain? I don!!!8217;t think that!!!8217;s fair to up my bill by 9 a month for the same but without kids tv. Plus 18 instead of 12 months contract. Is it worth a last try? Any advice?

    You don't have any grounds to complain. And if you complain they haven't offered you a better deal, then they will know that you were just fishing for one in the first place, if they don't already. The best deals come to people who Sky genuinely think they will lose as customers. For whatever reason, they don't seem to think you are in that catagory.

    Of course it isn't fair. What would be fair would be everyone who has Sky paying the advertised price. So no deals for anyone. The 53 they have offered you is still cheaper than a new customer deal, so that's not really fair on new customers.

    Have often have you spoken to them in the last 4 weeks? You may find you're going to have to get cut off to get the better deals now. I don't know if it's still the case, but have you checked My Sky through the website, TV and app? They used to put deals on there as well.

    Mega deal
    Got to post this guys!

    So a few days ago I decided to cancel my sky account to get the best deal I could from them. After a couple of offers (55 for Entertainment, HD, Kids Channels, Box Sets, Fibre Unlimited and Line Rental), I finally received a phone call from the 'overseas' department of retentions.

    The gentleman who called me, was in such a rush to get me to agree to stay with them, he accidentally offered all of the above for 36 per month...

    Naturally I jumped at the offer, after getting him to confirm verbally, twice, that it did indeed include broadband and line rental.

    A couple of hours later, I decided to check my emails, only to find that he put the offer through incorrectly, my grand total was going to be 58 per month. Luckily I jumped straight on the phone, spoke to one of their UK based operators, got them to listen to the call and now I'm paying 38 per month! Couldn't argue about 2! All on a 12 month contract too!

    Happy flippin days!
