      Sky+ Cheapest Way to Upgrade?

      Hi All,

      I'm wanting up upgrade to sky+, however I feel I have missed the boat.

      I have phoned up and asked to upgrade and they want 129 plus 30, which as you will agree is extortion.

      Does anyone know if the Currys 49 offer is still on (I dont mind 49 plus 30 install). My local store is a 45 min drive and they wont connect me to the store, grr.

      If Currys is finished, anyone know a way to get it cheaper?

      Cheers

      Sanch

      You could always try to phone the cancellations department stating that you have had a better offer from Virgin Media and you are going to cancel. This is a high risk strategy though as they may call your bluff? Incidently how long have you been with Sky

      You can always try it anyway. I would think that the mention of VM may have sky running backwards . Tell them some friends of yours have managed to blag a sky+ box cheaper and why cant you? If they so no, you are no worse of. Depends on how persuasive and charming you can be when you get through.

      OK I phoned back and turned on the charm. I stated that Currys had the 49 offer and that they had recently done it for my brother at 49, however they would not shift.

      they went to ask a supervisor and he wouldnt budge.

      they will do it for 129 inc installation or HD for 279

      Im frustrated, next route is the cancellations dept, however dont know where I stand as im still in my 12 month 'probation'

      expect that they are being so fussy because you are still within your contract. No harm though trying stating you will not be renewing your contract at the end of it? Dont know if you checked the web page but if you upgrade online with a multiroom subscription (granted this costs 10 a month) it states a price of 49.00

      You can try cancellations but you will have to pay a cancellation penalty since you are within your contractual 12 month period and are only cancelling because you can't get a "deal". Might as well wait a few weeks and see what happens, things may change or another offer may come along.
