      It seems, from other posts, that to get the discount you need to sign up to another 12 month contract. This was not made clear when the announcement was first made, when it looked like you could sign up for 12 months to get the discount early. It was not clear you have to sign up to get it at all!

      It did not stop them forcibly upgrading me to Unlimited from Mid and charging me 7.50. I don't have the privileges this gives on Sky Player, which I don't know if it is one of their usual mistakes or whether they want me to sign up for 12 Months to get them. I don't use Sky Player that much so I am not worried. I wonder if anyone else here is in a similar position?

      How do you sign up for another year, I'm a little wary of going through the checkout if that's how - I'll probably end up with HD, Talk and Sports added to my already colossal 64 a month.

      Hang on and see if someone posts who has done it. If you try to do it on line you will probably end up in a mess as there does not seem to be any clear way to do it.

      If you have Unlimited Broadband then you should have access to the live channels (and catchup stuff) on Sky Player that goes with what packages you have, I have signed up to any new 12 month contract and get them.

      I upgraded online with no problems. It triggered the usual emails about contract terms and DLM but my line wasn't touched and still works fine.

      Your current TV and Talk packages are shown separately in the online shop. If there is a checkbox next to Broadband Unlimited it should send the order through. You could always try emailing them instead if the web shop doesn't look right.
