      Cancel??

      I have had Sky television for a couple of years now, Iím just wanting to know if I can cancel. I know I can cancel anytime after 12 months but because I now have Sky BB which I believe is a 12 month min term how does this affect cancelling the tv??

      The adverts for Sky Broadband do say that you have to be a TV subscriber so I would guess that Sky might cancel your broadband service. Give it a try and see what happens

      Yep sky bb is for sky customers only, I think they would defo cancel your sky bb account... I don't see why they would ask for you to pay up on the sky bb though.. But you might be able to buy out the contract which is normaly abit expsenive to buy out AOL I had to pay £50.00

      @prorideruk

      If you cancel your Sky TV they will cancel the whole lot and you will get billed for the remaining contract as it is a requirement of having SkyBB that you also have Sky TV.

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      Re: Cancel??

      so if i've had the max package for 4 months I'll have to pay the remaining 8 months at £80? or is it capped?

      Playing devils advocate here for a minute but what would happen if you are out of contract with both your TV and your Broadband and cancelled your TV, would Sky after a few warnings I would imagine, tell you to find another ISP ?
