      Free Wireless Connector

      Just seen an advert for a free Wireless connector if you sign up to Sky Movies and Anytime+.

      To see if you are eligible please try this link:

      www.sky.com/freewireless

      Could be a nice option for those who don't want lots of wires or want the HomePlug or PowerLine options.

      Re: Free Wireless Connector

      Shame I'm still waiting for Anytime+, a reply from the about my complaint or the email about how to get the wireless dongle!

      Guessing by the time Anytime+ is enabled (or box swapped when they give up) all the dongles will be gone.

      Let's look on the positive side of this...

      Yes they will have all gone.

      Personally I have gone for a wired connection. It offers a better connection for my setup. WiFi is prone to so many issues when streaming video content and the dongle which Sky has been supplying is only WiFi g. This is prone to more problems than WiFi n.

      Well, you only have 10 days...
      Here's the legal bit

      Free Wireless Connector offer: Existing Sky TV households without Sky Anytime+ only. Compatible Sky+HD box and Sky Broadband Unlimited required for unlimited usage (Sky network areas only). Sky Broadband Unlimited 7.50 a month with Sky Talk (otherwise 12.50). Upgrade to Sky Movies 1 & 2 required (16 extra a month). Offer ends 22 May 2011.

      Online Upgrade offer: We will credit 5 to your account if you upgrade to the Sky Movies Pack online. Credit will be made to your Sky digital account within 60 days of the new Pack being enabled on your viewing card. This is not available in conjunction with any other offer.

      Forget about your complaint and just ring up for the dongle; you can deal with the complaint later, but right now those dongles are going FAST

      Re: Free Wireless Connector

      Did anyone manage to get this? I get this message:

      Sky Movies is now on demand Good news you're almost ready to start enjoying awesome Sky Movies on demand!

      You just need to get set up with Sky Anytime+.

      Unfortunately you're not eligible for a free Sky Wireless Connector, but you can choose another free Sky Anytime+ set-up option
      I've got Sky Unlimited broadband, a Sky+ HD box and have upgraded to movies too. Since this is an online only offer I am sure if I ring in nobody will have an idea of why I am not 'eligibile'.

      Re: Free Wireless Connector

      I got the same message. In order to get the same message as those who don't have Sky Movies, i had to log out of my sky account.

      I guessed it was because i have both Movie packs and this is a promotion to encourage people to sign up to them.

      Re: Free Wireless Connector

      Just the usual Sky hype, don't bother about those who have been paying for Movies for years, just suck some more in. I don't want or need the wireless gadget, but it is annoying when new users continually get goodies thrown in. Don't anyone come up with 'I got mine when I joined' I paid full whack for Sky+ and over 200 for HD
