      Difference between Variety & Family Bundles .. I am about to join Sky

      I am about to join Sky, having been with Virgin for several years. I'll be wanting broadband as well as the TV package. I suppose I'll need a phone line too, although I don't often use the house phone.

      I see on the cashback sites (Quidco etc) that there are some good deals for new customers.

      I am a bit puzzled though. I realise the Original bundle is the basic package, as regards the TV, but how do the Variety and Family bundles compare ? I can not seem to find (in an easy to read list) which channels are different. Are there actual extra channels, or is it just a case of HD versions of the same channels.

      Also

      Can I keep my existing house phone number if I change from Virgin ... after all I've had the same number for many many years.

      Final question ... Is goin through a cashback site the best way to get a good deal ?

      My daughter has Sky and she seems to have millions of channels, compared to my Virgin package, which is actually their biggest package, except the specific Sky channels (sports / movies)

      Hi wbmkk and welcome to the forum.
      No extra channels just HD versions of the channels that are included in the variety pack though the Family pack also allows you to download box sets at no extra cost.

      Yes you can transfer your phone number from Virgin provided that it is still active.

      As to whether Cash back sites give the best deal, check out the following link:

      Get 33 percent off Sky TV for 12 months plus a 50 reward of your choice

      I'll leave you to do the maths. There is a compulsory 10 setup fee. You should also be able to get 1/2 price Sky Unlimited broadband with full priced line rental.
