Hi quickymart.  Best deal from Sky is one month Sky Starter ($24.91) + Sky Sport ($29.90) free.  So $54.91 of savings.

 

No problem that you're happy with your current broadband, but you'll be paying over $660 more on your Sky this coming year by passing on the Vodafone deal.

quickymart:

What is the best deal for Sky these days now? I had a hankering to watch the Movies channel last night.



Hit the view answer button and try Andy Purcell's contact details

He still seems to be able to deals. Or try the original 0800 number just in case :)

I thought hawking sales on GZ was against the FUG?

 

The poster I am referring to isn't stated as from a telco, but its like he just passed the sales and marketing course by his telco and has been let loose here

Hi tdgeek,

 

I'm going to make a wild guess that you're referring to me?! I am indeed a Vodafone Staff member.  Hamish Sansom... Batchelor of Engineering, Electrical & Electronics, but yes, I passed my Diploma of Business (Marketing) course in 1998 and been loose on Geekzone by Vodafone since 2005.

 

I don't believe it's against GZ rules to answer the question "what's the best Sky deals?" with the information that we offer free Sky Sports for 12 months + no HD Ticket or MySky charges ? 

 

I used to be tagged as a Vodafone staff member, but maybe a 3 year absence from Vodafone meant my tag dropped off? @freitasm may be able to re-instate my Vodafone staff status?

 

Cheers

 

Hamish

Cheers for replying, but I don't care about sport, only thing that would interest me would be movies. Note that I don't have Sky currently - I was interested in what the deal may be for a new customer. And (unfortunately) I've heard enough horror stories about Vodafone broadband to keep me away. But thanks anyway.

Slightly off topic, but in reply to @quickymart I have been with Vodafone for years with no problems and at a very reasonable cost.

And there's a lot of people that have had problems with Vodafone.

 

To get their Sky Deal it's still a risk, and also if someone is happy with their current ISP, to take the deal involves a change there as well.

 

If Sky's pluck is only a matter of months better to wait for that or test out numbers in this thread in my view.

freitasm: @tdgeek I think his reply was on point and on topic.

 

Ok, thats fine, I just asked. I also got 4 supporters on my post. Not that it means my post was valid, just that others see this too. I still feel that Hamish's replies were less of help and more of sales/defence. The query about retiring, mentioned 3 specific examples, which are well known, the reply was just about Vodafone TV.

 

If Hamish is noted as Vodafone, that's a help.

 

Cheers, just a minor point, tks for clarifying

I agree.Not to derail Voda, but it's all so up in the air. Sky's puck, maybe pricing :-) ,Spark Sport, Voda's new offering. Once we get hard numbers and dates, it will be easier for people to start pulling triggers.

Emailed Sky about my options once the 0800 deal ends, they didn't give me a rollover option and couldn't tell me about the puck yet.

I text the 027 number in a post above last week and was offered a similar deal to the 0800 deal
