    I accepted the following offer through Love Digital today:

    £10 Entertainment
    £10 Cinema
    £5 Box Sets
    Free HD
    Total £25 per month

    This is with a Sky Q 1TB Box for £20 install.

    Also was very lucky and got a £50 Cashback offer through my current account this morning when rejoining Sky. So means I will get 2 months free too!

    Was really pleased with that so finally made a decision and went for it!

    Hi All,

    Just been on the phone to retentionís when I threatened to give notice and was offered entertainment pack, sports pack and box sets for £32 on sky +HD on an 18 month contract. Seems like a good deal to me but keen to know peoples thoughts before I say yes

    IF it includes everything in HD and IF the discounts apply for the full 18 months (not the last six months at full price) then yes, it is a good price -my discounted deal currently for almost the same package is £33 pm

    He did offer multiscreen for £12 per month, but I declined. It's not mandatory, though I believe if you are going for the 2TB box you would be charged a much higher "install" fee if you don't take multiscreen. (£199 I believe). I'm just having the 1TB box, so could keep the fee down to £20 install with no multiscreen.

    You do have to have multiscreen with a 2TB box if you want to "unlock" Ultra HD though.

    Got

    Entertainment, HD, Fibre Max, Line Rental
    Total £45 per month
    £10 one off install fee

    Sky Chat guys would only haggle down to £53 for the above from the advertised £55. So I am very happy

    That's great news! I can't take all the credit, as Gavgooner recommended them in an earlier post!

    I was quite impressed with Love Digital, they were very efficient, explained everything clearly and there was no hard sell at all.

    Glad you got a great offer as well!

    Contacted LoveDigital through facebook, was able to get them to call me and they offered me:


    Sky Q box
    Sky Sports HD
    Sky Entertainment HD
    18 month contract
    ...for £20pm.



    No install costs, although I did have to wait 9 days until a slot was available! Sound good?

    That sounds like a great deal! Especially for sports around this time of year!

    I had to wait a bit longer for mine - 21 days for the first available date! Not bothered though, as the deals are really good!

    That's a very good deal. Is LoveDigital just a London based deal? or is it all over uk.

    Bite their hand off! Although the disadvantage is after 18 months you'll get a crap renewal deal and as far as I know there's no way to go back to the old sky box

    Is this love digital deal for new customers only? How about if you've been without sky for about 4 months?

    Just spoken to retention's after calling to cancel. Got offered
    Sky Entertainment HD Pack
    Box Sets
    Full Sky Sports HD

    £34 pm 18 month contract Discounts last 18 months
    .
    There was a £10 'admin' charge which was mentioned at the end of the conversation, which was a little annoying, but overall I was happy with the deal.

    You should have flat out refused to pay the £10, they would have backed down without a doubt.
