      Sky - New rumours

      Allegedly, as from tomorrow, those of you with a National Trust membership can get Sky+ for £49.00 off. - unconfirmed.

      Found another source of info: National Trust | Partner offers | Sky although the NT says This offer is only open to National Trust members joining between 1 January 2007 and 31 December 2007. So looking at that, it has been available for some time.

      https://survey.sky.com/nationaltrust/Default.asp

      Also, one box multi room and line rental with terrestrial sky is just around the corner - unconfirmed.

      Broadband Sales are being outsourced to another company as from tomorrow morning, the existing staff that sell broadband within Sky are moving to New Business. Are Sky signing that many people up? - unconfirmed.

      Very interesting Intriguing in fact. can you provide any more colour. what does "terrestrial sky" mean. Any idea on timing of one-box multi-room solution and line rental offering. Also, would Sky really outsource tele-sales? i thought they had made big investments in their own call centres staff and systems. are they expecting big growth in new business for TV subscribers, or something else?

      Why do Sky change £60 installation for Sky+ when normal Sky installation is free, does it cost them anything more to install Sky +, Is it a different Dish?

      The basic Free dish & box does not really cost that much but the cost is recoup'd on subscription whereas a SKY+ box actually retails at a lot more than SKY sell it for. All boxes are heavily subsidised though via the little RED BUTTON, yes a marketing company actually pay SKY for the privilege of promoting this function hence the "your phone line must be attached for the first 12 months" in the hope you will spend money on the online functions.

      PS. It is possible to have SKY Digital without a phone line for a £25 opt out fee

      I don't know whats new about the National Trust offer, two friends of mine have used the offer to get the £49 Sky + box (plus £60 installation) and they have been members for years.
      The only reason i didn't get it is that I'm still waiting for the £10 sub to be ceased............aren't we all!

      I/we have no idea how this will be implemented, whether it involves a new set top box or an add on etc remains to be seen.

      Well i think a freview based service is gonna be good i'd go for it ratehr than pay £21 a month for it - we don't watch half the channels anyway

      Freesat is just what it says - a sat dish and receiver that does not require a card or sub
