Just thought I'd dive in on this thread.
My daughter does pamphlet deliveries in our local area (she's 12, so it's a bit of pocket money for her).
She has 5 or 6 streets to do on her run.

Normally it's flyers for New World, or Briscoes or something like that she has to deliver.
The instructions are pretty much deliver to all mailboxes except ones with 'no circulars' or 'no junk mail' etc on them.
So far so good.

Recently she has had sky flyers to deliver.
These flyers have 'new customer' deals on them, such as sign up for basic, and get sports & movies free for a year etc etc.
That's all fine, except that with the flyers comes instructions.
The instructions list the addresses of all 'non sky customer people' on the run, and the instructions state to deliver only to those addresses. Further the instructions state "If you have any flyers left over, please dispose of them discretely".

Way to disrespect loyal existing customers sky!

wasabi2k: So I've been offered 2 months of Rialto at half price or 2 months of SKY movies at half price.

yay. not.

And I am 30 and work in tech and I've been subscribed to Netflix for close on 2 years I think. I still watch NRL.

yes, my rugby comment was taking things too far.  Everything else was right tho I think :)
