      Cheers - oh and thanks to all for spot-on info.

      I just rang them they offered a 2TB box for 49 the HD pack for half price for 12 months but multi room for 10.25, do you think they can do better? also if you had a 2TB box and a Sky+ HD box on the same network would the rumoured planner sharer still work?

      I got the above, and free multiroom for 12 months. Try again later or accept that? Either way it is a good deal.

      As for the other one, hopefully yes.

      Re: Multiroom offer

      Read about the free multiroom and mentioned 'a friend' had got that but they said because it is near christmas they have no other offers, then later he said if we'd been a customer 5 years instead of 3 we may get better offers!?

      Re: Multiroom offer

      tbh there is rumours that Sky are going to stop offering such good deals anyway, so it maybe worth trying again later and if not then going for it?

      Like they say people are signing upto Sky in their thousands anyway, so they can afford to be a little arrogant I guess.

      All depends how you play it etc you could say you want to cancel because you feel the 2TB box offer for new customers is a little unfair etc etc but no guarantee you will get anywhere.

      Re: Multiroom offer

      According to the latest offer (on the banners we have)

      Free 2TB STB for new customers, with free installation, however, afaik that is an affiliate offer only.

      So cancellations may not even know of that deal.

      Am about to phone - but wondering about which dept. Should I go back to cancellations who a few weeks ago spoke of a deal (though prob only the DRX595 box) or to upgrades? Or contact upgrades? My aim is to get best deal on a mulitroom add on to my HD and Sports package - with say the 895 box.

      Any thoughts folks?

      Cheers

      Re: Multiroom offer

      Check what you can get online and use that as your datum. You can try upgrades but I doubt whether they will improve on this. Cancellations have offered good deals in the past but not so good recently. General consensus is that a lot of cancellation offers have been removed.

      Re: Multiroom offer

      Tried cancellations/online chat/upgrades. No extra sweeteners - just 49 for the 2tb box plus 60 installation. Went for it in the end as I either need to spend a couple of hundren on a new HDMI video sender or bite the bullet - so it will be a couple of years before I would equal the cost of the latter, so a no-brainer.

      Looks like as others have said - other deals are off ATM/

      Cheers folks
