Vodafone customers score pass to SKY Sport or SoHo – just in time for the biggest sporting event of them all

 

Vodafone is offering fans a front row seat to a huge year of sporting action from the comfort of their own homes with a special offer launching on July 1.

 

Customers who sign up to Vodafone Unlimited Broadband Data and home phone with SKY Basic for 12 months will score free SKY Sport or SoHo for a year, just in time to see our Kiwi athletes battle it out on the world stage as they vie for that dream podium finish. The offer also includes free SKY standard installation and free MY SKY for new SKY customers, unlimited broadband data and free calling to five New Zealand mobiles.

 

“We Kiwis are huge on sport and we want to make it easy for our customers to show their support and get in behind our athletes who will be giving their all. We want to make sure that our customers can keep up with all of the glory and excitement by giving them free access to SKY Sport and its pop-up channels,” said Vodafone’s Consumer Director Matt Williams.

 

For customers looking for the very best in drama and entertainment, the offer also features the option of free access to SKY’s premium entertainment channel SoHo, the home of HBO - offering uncut and uninterrupted access to the best television on the planet.

 

“This is a huge year for sport – whether its cycling, basketball, rowing, equestrian or the rugby – we’ve got you covered. It’s easy to manage your broadband, home phone and entertainment needs by combining them into a single package. No one needs to miss out on must-see shows and sporting events with the ability to record and watch on demand,” said Mr Williams.

 

The offer will run for a year providing customers with access to all of the usual sporting coverage, including rugby, cricket, basketball, hockey and more.

 

For customers new to SKY, standard installation is free and MY SKY will be included at no extra cost.

Grunt

 

So to offer SOHO to me as an existing customer would cost about $15 in total human processing time. No installs, truck rolls or site visits. And I might actually enjoy it.

 

But I doubt it.... they are already getting my $$ and have no need to spend more money keeping me or any other customer....

@Mikehales Does this apply to Sky via Vodafone TV? Can existing subscribers resub for 12 months to get the deal?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Sounds like a pretty good deal, shame there's no offer for existing customers.

 

Our household has been with VF for 10 years and Sky for 8, good thing we decided to cancel Sky and switch to another ISP before the end of the year.

As long as they provide the service, and you pay your bills, then you're both square with each other.

 

 

 

Unless long service benefits were included in the original contract, companies just don't owe you anything for staying with them for years.
