Sky Offer

Depends on how you do it mate. The boxes are around £80 to buy, and then you can install everything yourself following this sort of guide:

 

 

Then you'd need to buy the 'line'. From what I've read/seen, eBay lines can be a bit flaky, in that the line goes down and the sellers disappear.

 

Or, you can buy one fully set up with the line (subscription) included for about £180 (that's for twin tuners - so you can record). I'm not sure how much this fella charges for the line only but I've been watching this page for quite a few weeks and found them to be quick to respond to any problems people have and very knowledgeable.

I think both those links are from here, somewhere in this thread.

Cheers.  Something I'm defo looking into.

Never seen that before but seen their broadband block numetous streaming sites.

 

Nothing to do with nowtv of course, which they advertise on the block page. Wankers.

Maybe sky should lower their prices. It's the same shitty programmes on at the same time day after day after day. Netflix is what 7 quid a month and it's got far more stuff worth watching as time goes on. Sky not only charges you a fortune but then has the cheek to having a fucking sky store and PPV for content that should be part of the original bill. There's only so many episodes of fucking Simpson's, Alaskan bush people and all that bollocks you can stomach. Soon as my cheap sky contract is done that's that.

I got 20% off for 6 months last year. Got this extended for 18months with SkY Q for £60 installation and it made my bill cheaper as I don't have to pay for multi room.

Anyone still paying for sky sports & BT should be right

on the phone now to give them the 1 months notice to cancel. I've been doing it for years and I currently pay £42 pm and that includes all the sports, movies as well as the LFC channel all in hd. Mines not up for renewal now till September due to them calling my bluff and cancelling it all through the summer but there's fuck all on anyway other than yachting or golf or other shite so I never missed anything of note but they came back to me 3 times last summer and I held out till I got it all for less than 50% off. I'll be right onto them as soon as it's due up to try and get it even cheaper next time as although I've now got kodi, it's a pain in the arse trying to get a decent stream whenever we're on.

Well worth phoning to cancel now tho and if you don't get 50% until the end of next season now, hang on signing back up with them till before next season starts and they'll be throwing deals at you until you get the right one

£26 for 6 months of sportsmania(or other paid options) gives you every Liverpool game. Also have films and tv boxsets on there.£52 a year over £42 a month is a bit of a no brainer in my view.

Well they should be right on the phone to cancel, telling them to fuck off with the laughably extortionate cut price, getting themselves an open box and paying £15 a year for every channel including box office fights.

To be fair that's hardly comparing apples with apples though is it?

 

Big difference in terms of hardware, stability and convenience.

 

I'm not saying that it's not worth doing, just pointing out that there's more to it than that.

Yeah this is why I still pay Sky. I have the basic TV package and normal broadband on a 30% off deal but having a 5-year-old, I need the kids stuff (which is very good on Sky IMO) and I need him to be able to access it himself, which he's only started to learn. The paid sub to a sports site though is a no brainer.

I've got the full package on 30% off. I also have a paid sports sub for the BT games and Saturday 3pms etc. The paid one is fine but not all HD and also not always stable (I couldn't watch the Real v Bayern game the other night for instance).

 

I've got a 6 year old lad and agree with you on the Kids stuff, there's loads of choice and my lad knows how to find everything himself.

 

At the end of the day it all comes down to affordability. I'm lucky in the sense that I can afford it so i'm happy to pay for the convenience.

Mine is the exact same for £15 a year. Unless Murdoch is offering it for £14 a year then it's daft to make that cunt richer.

Yeah not seen Sky Q to be fair. I've got the Sky+ HD one and it's spot on. A few differences, but £90 a month cheaper.

There is a Sky Q build. Have a look on techkings and search for wooshbuild

200 Meg Broadband

Big House TV with BT Sport

Weekend/evening free calls

V6 VM box free and no install charge

Superhub 3.0 free and no install charge

Bit their hand off.

Gave my notice into Sky last week. Have got a 50% off for 12 months offer sat in my account but tried to get a Sky Q box thrown in for good measure (they are giving them to new customers) but they wouldn't play ball.

Going to wait now until mid May before I take the 50%, see if they come back to me and I can try to get the Sky Q.
