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

    I have sky hd on 60% discount till next year.
    Am currentky paying 15.20 for entertainment kids boxset + hd. Was calling up for sky sports.

    They offered me this on live chat.

    I can offer you the entertainment package with sports, HD & kids for 41 a month. If you'd like cinema it'd rise to 51 a month. Then in regards to SkyQ I can offer you the 1TB box for just 20 instead of 199+!

    Was this any good or did i do right in refusing?

    Yeah I should have, but i was under a bit of pressure from the missus to reduce our sky bill , & wanted me to cancel the Sky sports package. She was happy with a 30 PM saving. (and I got to keep the sport)

    It's like a restaurant adding a service charge to your bill so you're paying the waiters wages instead of it being their paid job.

    If they deal with 3 customers an hour it's a nice little earner.

    Your thinking about 27 a month, i would jumped all over that over that. I have been without Sky for 12 months and the cheapest they have offered is 34 a month for Sports on old sky hd box and 36 for Q box.

    I have sinced gone down the Now TV route season sports pass for 179 and Entertainment for 38 a year. Not ideal, much prefer the satellite feed than streaming.

    Worth trying again I think. Mine isn't quite as good as the 20 but not too dissimliar considering I've got additional stuff - 32 for the below TV package. Goes up to 48pm when I included broadband but a good deal for the overall TV package I think.

    SkyQ 1TB
    Cinema HD
    Sports HD
    Entertainment HD

    Canceled my sky and this weekend it turned off

    My best offer is sky entertainment, sky sports, box sets, all in HD for 36pm 12-month contract. I declined as they wanted to charge me 10 admin fee Grrrr

    If I go into my sky offers I have almost the same offer for 37.50pm but without the admin fee, which i know over 12 months works out more.

    Apparently, according to the guy I spoke to, they get discount codes for this stuff and when I was offered 27 p/m he had to use a couple of codes. Last ones available. But when I called back an hour later the code had been used up. They apparently get the codes regularly so I'll try again.

    Does anyone know, are boxsets standard a Todd sky q or do u pay extra for that too

    Not standard with SkyQ unfortunately (I can only vouch for the 1TB though). I tried to get them thrown in with my offer but they were having none of it!

    You can get box sets thrown in for 1 If you negotiate enough but it's not standard for Q.

    I don't mean to be rude, but what was your bargaining tactic? I didn't have to do much to get Sports/Entertainment/HD with a Qbox for 20. I just kept refusing any offer and mentioning NowTV offering me 20/month (which was true)


    Good chance I just got lucky though or somebody made a mistake, seems like no one else has an offer like mine

    Hi guys
    Long time since I logged into this thread. Its aprox 2.5 years since I did the threaten to leave thing and I got my bill down to less than half price for 12 months.
    But since that ended IVe been paying full price for the last 18 months or so and it!!95.50 now as IVe got Sky Q and the full tv package including sports and movies.
    Simple question - if I give notice to quit what realistically should I accept from the detentions dept?? Thanks
