cws82us: Sky does not forget u. There's adds on sky saying sign up to rugby channel for 1 dollor for one mouth and so on.





Yeah, except programming ads dont change no mater what subscription you're on. If you're like me and have rugby channel, you will still see adds saying "upgrade to rugby channel now"

How do you use the code...on line or over the phone? I didn't see anywhere on line to put it in.
Is it still valid now that they are pushing free sport for 3 months?
Thanks

Just call 0800 759 555 quote the code 6800 and tell them it's from a mailer and they'll sign you up. I did it today. 12month contract $23.80/month. Free install. Basic package, don't know if it comes with 3 months free sport - not really my thing so didn't ask.

I got confirmation I can get sky in my apartment.
Really tempted, if only for BBC World Service.

Can you put a scan of that up? Does it say if I can get a multiroom install done and have that halfprice too?

Interestingly Sky never seem interested in rewarding existing customers.

All their deals are for new signups - nothing to reward long term customers at all.

Yes - we have it partly because that is the only decent TV news service available in NZ!

That and Freeview has no channels worth watching, of course!

Is BBC and aljazera available on anything up therir FTA on a sane sized dish? Hopefully with AJ in a proper aspect unlike the 14:9 crap that ends up on stratos.

Aljazeera broadcasts in 14:9 letterboxed into 4:3. To get BBC World you will need this: http://www.freeviewshop.co.nz/world-package-p-560.html.
To get aljazeera you will need a 3 meter c-band dish.

3 meter eh... thats not gonna happen. Why are they broadcasting something that is effectivly useless aspect ratio wise on a digital platform? Insane. I thought it would have been stratos cocking it up, not the originating broadcaster.
