What I think looks bad (and this is just my opinion) where they announce their subscriber numbers have dropped...then the next day - or even a few hours later - "Sky announces they are raising their prices". It just looks really poor; it reads like the existing ones have to pay more to make up for the ones who left.
Ive never seen that at all. All companies raise prices annually, inflation. Telco's etc, everybody. Everyone complains, except they don't complain at annual salary review time.
Aside from that, get it if you like it, don't get it if you don't
I've seen it happen a bit lately. Note that I don't have Sky anymore - it no longer made sense for me, value-wise; I only watched about 6 channels but had to pay for the 100-odd others I never watched.
A bit lately, Sky increase their prices every now and then? I also have to pay Netflix, Lightbox (albeit free on my plan), Amazon, Curiositysteam for content that I havent or wont be watching. Thousands of titles too! :-)
