Jaxson: Kky does this deal where you can get a sky dish installed and a digital decoder that only works on the prime station for $149. (This is so they can pretend Prime is free to air everywhere and not put it on freeview in my opinion). This is for people who can't get uhf prime, like most of the middle of Wanganui for instance. Anyhow I checked up on this cos my parents already have an existing sky dish installed but can't get uhf prime. Still want $149 for a tech to come and do nothing more than plug it in and turn it on.
Whilst it's easier for sky to install at an existing installation, it's of no benefit to the customer whether it's pre existing or not. I wonder if there is a law about something being unclaimed for a certain period of time. I mean if I leave an aerial at a house I leave, can I really expect to go back and rip it out 5 years later just because I didn't specify it was a chattel to be transferred when I sold the house?
you can only get this deal if you cant get UHF in your area..... i tried to get prime this way. Even with the existing dish they wouldnt give me the decoder for prime only, even if i paid the $150
