    I think he was asking more about the broadband than the tv. Yes, they are part of sky. I didn’t realise myself until I got my new router which was exactly the same as my previous sky router, except that it has a “now broadband” logo on it. bskyb is actually written in small on the side. I thought I was ditching those robbing b*****ds haha

    Not a fan of Sky at all, had the whole sky package years ago and watched the price slowly creep up so switched to BT. Much better and much better football coverage (I am also spared Jamie Carraghers over exaggerated scouse accent (People from Liverpool dont actually talk like that) and his annoying habit of sucking his teeth after every sentence) Even the films now seem to be Now TV which you can get on offer every now and again for £5.99 so why pay the full price? Much easier to get the basics and then add on as you see fit.

    Question to those who have got rid of Sky what do you use to record programmes on?

    I switched from Sky Q with broadband to Virgin with their Ultimate Oomph package at £77 per month after a £249 credit was applied to my account when they were unable to give me an offer for a free TV.

    Don’t really have the need to record anything. Most things I watch are on catch ups or Netflix etc and any sport needs watching live or not at all for me

    You can keep the “record only” option for about £5 a month without the subs

    Now is indeed sky


    Sky are ditching the boxes to stream via TV only - indeed flogging their “own” TVs

    It’s the future

    I have an android box that I use to get what I need
    No need for sky - they write to me at least once a month begging with £13 a month type offers
    So if you DO dump them on a trial basis - you’ll get deal of the decade to go back if you don’t let it go off
    There’s f all on it anyway

    I returned my sky boxes so have nothing to record on anyway. I have an Apple TV 4K box and can normally find anything I want using that and my many subscriptions

    Spend most of yesterday trying to set up IPTV through a firestick and ended up realising that I'm now too old to understand the modern world with its protocols, MAC addresses, EPG URLs and basically anything remotely technical. I have now turned into my mum.
    It's easier just to hand SKY £120 a month so I can watch any Chelsea game I can't make because the kick off time has been moved because it's now a SKY game.
    Oh, I see what they've done there.

    Cancelled My Sky TV

    What about a freesat box? Or is just easier to have free view and now TV?

    LOL!

    I find that as one gets older, it becomes more hassle to learn new stuff and much easier to just delegate it (in exchange for money) and get what you want more quickly.

    Did the sky renewal process over the weekend. Was paying £63 for cinema, sport, hd and mini box for another room which they wanted to up £97. After 40 minute wait finally got through and said i wanted to cancel as wasn’t prepared to pay any more than the £63. She was pretty brief and we agreed £66. Not sure £66 is reasonable but happy for another 18 months

    Well just cancelled after 22yrs with Sky had a decent package but with two smart tvs i can go back to netflix at £9.00 pm + Now Tv through the season. Nothing offered over the phone and just got the cancellation e mail so let’s see if anything comes along in a week or so.

    I sat it out & they contacted me before the termination date.
    Just told them taking the pi$$ & not prepared to pay new premium they were dreaming, now paying less than previously.


    Wink Wink BF deals on the horizon cough, cough.

    If you’d really must have sky just let them cut it off

    Within a week or so you’ll be inundated with come back half price mailers

    Do yourselves a favour and get hooked up to some reliable IPTV - as long as your have decent internet to stream you’ll never look back

    This what I do each time. Sometimes it’s can be a few months let them call you. You’ll end up getting the packed you want. Mine is also coming up. I’ll wait for the F1 to finish then I will cancel.

    You don't need to go that far, just phone up and cancel just before the end of your contract, I do this every time and have done for years, been with Sky 20 years. The longer you stay and the more you have the better the deal. We pay £144 now for everything and for what we get I think it's great value

    So i get a e mail with a bunch of offers last week and i start the conversation with Sky who do not know their proverbial from their elbow eventually get talking to this retention agent and the bottom line i have what i had before that’s Q, full sports ,multi room ,HD, Netflix etc for £20.00 less than i was paying now £45.00 instead of £65.00 and best of all the missus understands the interface and leave’s me alone

    That's another 2 hours of my life speaking to Sky I won't get back. In summary even the retentions team seems to have rubbish tv offers today (I'm classed as their top tier Diamond VIP customer too). Also be very careful of their sneaky approach of making you contract for 18 months but with a number of the package discounts only running for 12 months. They will tell you that you are free to speak to them to re-contract at any time to see if you can get a better deal but once under contract I suspect they don't try very hard.

    For anybody in a contract with Sky TV that want's to get out, if you tell them you are moving to an address with Sky (they check the address and name on the account e.g. parents) they will waive all early termination fees. Just got out of my contract due to expire May 2022 and only need to pay the December bill.
