If it's an unused dish it probably needs a LNB change so it will take more contractor time than just plugging in the decoder. Why gripe about $50 compared with Telco reconnection fees involving less work?

It may need an LMB change yes... but thats not really a biggie!!
The installations cost Sky around $200 (not including decoder, but does include the dish and accessories.)
The plugins cost Sky around $40....
The intersting thing is, in the past if you only needed a plugin,, you still paid the full installation rate at the time, even though it's costing Sky less to install!

Simon, I don't know where you are but in my suburb in Wellington getting anywhere near the dish involves considerable ladder time. (and it's LN for Low Noise)

I also got the letter, theres no way ill take there offer though. Ive never had sky and never will. The house had a dish on it when we moved in, our dish still works fine as I have got it working with Freeview. But the TCL boxes work even better :)
