      the answer is in page 5

      in a condensed effort

      sky used to advertise sky+ free with a premium package at a cost of £17

      this seems very straight forward and black and white

      but lets introduce a little grey and look from a slightly different angle.

      sky+ should be £10 so for an extra £7 you could have a premium package and if the subscriber wanted the functionality of sky+ before anything else then that £7 represented good value for a premium package.

      now that sky+ is free then does £17 represent good value for that premium package. as lots of people in other posts
      have said the movies re shuffle is not to their taste, it gives them the option to save £17 for a month or two while new movies appear and still have sky+, also when the football season ends you could drop sports. this means sky will lose money from existing subscribers
      it could be recouped with new subscribers but if they are on a minimum
      package and then sky would have to give them free internet access as well.

      the incentive to subscribe to a premium package has gone

      the only customers that have gained are those on a basic package
      they needed to do somthing across the scale not just at one end.

      The answer to that is very simple. If sky want more money from subscribers then they shouldn't charge rediculous prices for their movies and sports offerings. Lower the cost and I'd subscribe, but as you already stated, £17 is not good value for money. For years, Sky have taken their subscribers for granted and raised the prices practically every year. In the face of increasing competition it will be interesting to see how they price their subscriptions. I am sure that come September we'll all be a little bit more enlightened.

      There have been some reports of success, best thing would be to ring and see what they say.

      Re: Sky+ Subscriptions

      You can check whether or not you have a compatible box by pressing the Services button on your remote control, then selecting 4 – System Setup, followed by 5 – System Details. The first four digits in the Version Number field will tell you what type of box you have and whether you can receive the service. Version codes starting with 4F21, 9F22, 4E21 and 4E30 are compatible with Anytime on TV.
      There you go
