      Sky+ Subscriptions

      Many of you have feverently been discussing rumours on the forums that Sky is about to scrap the £10 monthly subscription charge for Sky+. Many of you have also requested that we confirm the rumours one way or the other, once and for all.

      Well here goes. It’s true!

      We hope you’ll find answers to all your questions on this below...

      When does it happen?
      As of 1st July 2007, the Sky+ subscription charge of £10 will be removed for all Sky Digital customers subscribed to any Sky Digital package.

      Does it depend on which package I subscribe to?
      No, you will not have to pay a subscription charge for Sky+ after the 1st July, regardless of which Sky Digital package you subscribe to or how long you’ve been a customer with us.

      How do I apply for this?
      You don’t need to do anything. If you currently pay for the Sky+ subscription you will receive notification by letter in the next few days. And after the 1st of July you’ll see a £10 saving from your monthly Sky bill.

      What if I stop subscribing to Sky Digital?
      Should you decide to stop subscribing to Sky Digital but still wish to use all the features of Sky+, you will need to start paying the £10 per month Sky+ subscription again. A Sky+ subscription is only free for Sky Digital package subscribers.

      How does this affect HD customers?
      It doesn’t. Sky HD customers already have the Sky+ subscription charge waived, and will continue to do so after the 1st of July, as with all other Sky Digital subscribers.

      Does this mean if I sign up to Sky now as a new customer I will get a free Sky+ box?
      No.

      If I am a Sky customer but don’t have Sky+, how can I take advantage of this?
      From 1st of July if you want Sky+, you can buy a Sky+ box for a one off charge of £99 with a 12 month Sky+ subscription, and an installation charge of £30.

      How does this affect multi-room?
      The multiroom subscription is unaffected and remains at £10 per month.

      Why is Sky doing this?
      Many of you have said that you want Sky+, but to get it, it needs to be more affordable. We believe that by removing the Sky+ subscription cost for Sky Digital customers, it will mean that more of you are able to enjoy the benefits of Sky+.

      How can I find out more?
      If you have any more questions please call the customer services team on 08702 43 24 80.

      Re: Sky+ Subscriptions



      If I got my own Sky+ box and installed it my self could I transfer my existing normal sky contract to sky plus and still not have to pay the £10?

      Also would I still be able to transfer the card from one box to another at times like I do now.

      This bit puzzled me a little - I thought they were scrapping the subscription ?

      I'm not sure but you would need a dish with dual lnb and obviously two cables to your + box

      i think they are refering to 12 months minimum term dave as per usual - but no extra £10 a month for Sky +

      Got a quad LNB and sat cable, might wait till July and give them a little call.

      Want to replace the mini dish with a bigger dish and move it to the side of the house anyway, it keeps getting over grown with the vines. Hate having to trim me bush before I can watch TV

      Re: Sky+ Subscriptions

      rick-uk,

      Yes,

      You pay the same with 2 Sky+ boxes as you do with 1 Sky+ and 1 'standard' box. Of couse if you have movies and/or sport you don't pay the Sky+ bit anyway.

      Just had a thought. Now the movie channels have changed to the themed variety, do they count as the 2 movie original channels (i.e movies 1,3,5,7,9 and movies 2,4,6,8,10) ?

      In the old days it was possible to have odds or evens or both but I guess that's gone now.
