Harvey Norman has this special again. If you were planning to get mysky anyway, here's an opportunity to save the $99 install fee.

Sky is also phoning customers for free upgrade to MySky + free 6 months rental (i.e. the $15 fee) if you sign a 12 month contract. I don't think they give the option for ($600) purchase though.

But I'm sceptical, Sky is going to release a 500GB version and I'm told also a 1TB version so possibly getting rid of old stock.

Sky are coming on Saturday to upgrade us to Mysky.
I will be ringing them tonight to see if I can take advantage of the offer.

Is there a specific Mysky model I should ask for, or are they all the same?

I got called re this, but then they told me I'd have to buy a modulator if I wanted to keep getting the sky signal down in hte bedroom (which gets there via a splitter)! Cost of modulator: $50! I said no thanks, as that's what I was supposed to save by them giving me 6 months anyway.Undecided
