Hi guys 

I have been reading through the forums and have seen that some of you have been offered deals through telemarketers. 

Just wondering if anyone has been able to snag that deal which includes sports, movies and mysky for the base price lately? 

Cheers,
Tony

i see they are currently offering 6 months Mysky free with 2 months of Sky Sport free on their website but no mention of movies, i have found in the past when i have called Sky to cancel movies or put them back on that i have been offered deals (free Rialto Soho for a month etc), might be worth a try.

You could try ringing 0800 4 SKY TV (0800 475 988)

This is their telemarketers, not their regular consumer line, so they provide much better deals than sky can. 

This is for new customers only.

My deal was a couple of months ago but I got:
$48 a month deal:
- Sky Basic
- Mysky+
- Sky Movies
- Sky Sport
It is for 1 year service.  The contract is for 6 months so you can change services after that time or cancel with no early termination fee.

I also added the HD ticket for $10 - so $58 all up.  Still a great deal.

Thanks for the response. 

I tried giving that number a call and got their answer machine stating their business hours (from 12pm to 9pm).

They might still be on holiday until the 12th. 

I'll report back when I finally get through. 

If I can get that deal you got it would be awesome.  Even though, it is absolutely ridiculous that HD is 10 dollars extra. 

Cheers,
T

I've just cancelled sky after having been with them since they started in NZ.  I just could not justify the costs, especially with all the other options around.

And I can't believe they still charge for a HD ticket!!

I feel free.


Off topic I know, but make sure you really want/need it ....

I got the same deal but for 12 months.
I was a sky customer but cancelled 12 months prior to there tele marketer deal that was too good to refuse.

I know, but im pointing out that act like a monopoly,

there are plenty of business in the world with monopoly status that still push the boundaries to please there customers.

sky tv nz is not one of them.

They're a big corporate. They don't care about the customers.. They care about providing a good return for their shareholders and rubbish like that.

We got offered similar deal yesterday from a door knocker (he obviously cant read the sign on the door saying no door knockers), and wife is keen,.....mainly because we don't have a dish at the moment, and shes missing "live" TV.

$48 a month deal:
- Sky Basic
- Free install
- Mysky+
- 2 Premium channels of our choice

Thinking we might take it up for the 6 months and if find we're not using it, toss it away.

Might pay to check the price

its $48 for the basic package and the 2 free channels + either $15 for the HDI decoder or $20 for the Mysky+ decoder rental so at the worst $68 or$78 if you want the HD ticket. and you can get that for 12 months at that price. see below

That is the SKy deal but not the telemarkers deal. I have the contract in front of me and it's $48 + $10 for HD Ticket. Including either MySky or MySky+ rental.

Got a hold of the telemarketers and got the $48 dollar deal with Mysky +, sport and movies for 12 months.  They said after 12 months you can cancel and wait out a 2 month stand down period and sign up to the current deal at that time. 

Paying the extra $10 for the HD ticket. 

Thanks for your help guys.

Anyone have any ideas how I could get this to work.

At this current time I have our Vodafone and SKY billed under my name to their property which I'm residing at. We have just finished our 12 month term with them and are looking to move away from VF and go separate internet and SKY TV.

Thinking as our contract has ended I would be able to look around for the best deal and recommit to a new term with SKY, even resigning up with my parents details as they technically haven't had sky for over 12 months. 

However, it seems that because I have SKY now, I have to cancel for 2 months before I can resign to any promotional deals. Any other time of the year would be fine but with the Cricket world cup starting in a few weeks this isn't an option.
