      Re: name change

      I would have thought that you would need to change the whole account, as the broadband is dependent on having a Sky TV subscription. With your name on it without the TV side, you wouldn't be eligible.

      ... and your ex will have to do it as the Data Protection Act will not allow Sky to discuss the account with you I'm afraid.

      I would have thought if you can get your ex to ring Sky and tell them she no longer wants it and to put it in your name, Sky should be able to sort something out.

      Now the problem is, how do you get your ex to agree?
