    Need help with Sky

    Need help with Sky 13th Oct 18 at 11:25 PM
    My 18 month contract is ending on 19 November 2018 with Sky and I am seriously debating whether to quit (been with them since Dec 2012) as most of the TV I watch is on Freeview. The only thing I really want from Sky is the Sky Sports F1. Most of the time I watch YouTube or catchup TV through BBC iPlayer etc.


    Also I really do not get why I have to pay line rental when I haven't made a phone call using the home phone in about six years.


    I have been successful in the past negotiating some discounts when my contract ends but can only see myself staying with Sky if I can really nail a huge discount (50% - 60% off). Can anyone give some tips and stories on successfully getting big discounts, cheers.




    Here is a breakdown of my bill:


    --



    TV
    48.40


    --
    Original
    Including discounts
    18.49
    Sky Sports - Complete Pack
    Including discounts
    22.04
    Sky Cinema
    Including discounts
    7.87


    --


    Broadband & Talk
    33.99


    --


    Sky Talk Line Rental
    18.99
    Sky Fibre Unlimited
    Including discounts
    15.00

    Total 82.39
    Competion Wins 2008 - 1700 - 2009 5300
    2010- 680
