It is funny, because after the world cup the sky bosses were saying the drop in subscriber numbers would be negligible.
While anecdotal evidence was that there could be a big drop off in sky subscribers there were no hard numbers to say one way or another.
Now that it is hitting their bottom line they have to 'fess up to the shareholders.
I cancelled a little while back and they let me keep the box for a few months for free to air. But, i've got a Tivo ready to slot in when I return the sky box.
I was very much annoyed by skys annual ...we are raising prices... letter.
I was one of the first mysky subscribers when it was released and paid $600 up front for no monthly rental. I got the free upgrade to the HDi box, but when the larger box was released I tried to upgrade to that but they wanted another $600....really peeved me off that one so I'm pleased this is happening on a personal level haha.
