That's frustrating, as I couldn't get this a few weeks ago!

Sounds identical to the original telemarketer special - great!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think I read somewhere in this thread that the telemarketing team were only doing the special price for a six month period?

These deals feel like the original deals, which I would have thought don't easily match the new Sky package format after these were restructured?

The only difference between the old packages and new one is that Sky Basic was separated into Sky Starter and Sky Entertainment. That, and free SoHo if you have entertainment and either Sports or Movies. Since the deals through the telemarketers offer zero, one or two add packs, it is still easy to match.

I have had SKY for years, was spending $103 a month, Basic+Entertainment, Movies (now including Free SoHo), HD ticket, MY SKY+ (1TB) recording and SKY Watch magazine.

 

I asked for deal a while ago and got a few months free HD or something similar, nothing huge, as I didn't actually try to cancel.

 

This time, I called and said I wanted to cancel, and they got someone to call me back to try and get me to stay.

 

Just got offered: Free Movies (and SoHo) and Free MySky+ (1TB) recording for 3 months, with no obligation after the 3 months,  and I cancelled the SkyWatch Magazine, got it down to $60 a month for the next 3 months. 

 

I considered it and asked if it was the best they could do, and they also offered me 10 Free Pay Per View movies also.

 

Better than nothing, as I would have to pay up to $200 to get the Freeview sorted ( I Need my VHF aerial replaced with UHF and re-cabled) and pull out the Freeview Recorder instead.

 

Can anyone advise on a good TV Aerial installer in Auckland? Also where to watch UKTV shows? My wife loves Casualty (looks like you can get off YouTube) and Holby City (YouTube videos are terrible quality for this show)and we are 2 years behind the UK, so BBC iPlayer is out.

 

Call and say you are cancelling (and be prepared to cancel) and you might get a deal. Don't forget they ask for 28 days notice!
