Is that a secret forum link that I don't have access to?

Thanks for posting.

This deal pops up every now and then, and whilst it may have been covered in the SKY thread I don't see a problem reposting it here, to a potentially different audience.

Has any existing long term Sky customer (someone they tend to take for granted) managed to get this deal by calling up and requesting that they be "looked after" or they may leave?

I seem to recall a few people posting here that they've tried this and didn't have any luck. Apparently Sky doesn't do retention; quite odd considering how they're slowly becoming irrelevant - you would think they'd want to hang onto as many customers as possible. I guess they think their monopoly is strong enough not to worry about, which I guess it is as long as they have rugby all locked up.

Slowly being the keyword. While it doesn't apply to anyone here, turnkey TV is important for many. Its the TV remote or the Sky remote, easy as. Streaming TV is different, it's computery, it needs the nephew/niece to make it, might need gadgets.

Right now, I'd say Sky's customer churn/takeup probably isn't fluctuating too much, but one day it will. Then they need to revisit supply and demand, aka what the market will pay, not what the market will bear.

You can cancel your subscription and sign up in another name to receive the deal, Sky account is in the persons name. Not household
