      12 years for me and no letters either. The only 'offer' I got was a 25% discount of the full TV package last year but I only got that after phoning them to tell them I wanted to drop some packages. I have never had any letters with any offers. So much for customer loyalty !

      It does say later in the year, although some are getting them now.

      The offer is valid regardless of if you've recieved a letter, its to do with how long you've been a customer

      15 years and they can't get the name right

      Can't say it appeals much - I'm not ready for HD, or HDs not ready for me! The shows look rather lacking, I really don't have any interest in Sky One HD - not that I have much in Sky One!

      I wouldn't go to Sky if they even offered a thousand pound.

      This is the worst company I've ever had dealings with.

      Since leaving Sky, I've added another ten years to my life span.

      Sorry pete.i:...Its was always called Sky, It is now called Sky BSB.

      I've been with them 18 years,(Frank Bruno V Mike Tyson Fight 1989) when it was a free service...Then when they went to Subscription (14.99)
      existing Customers got it for 9.99 and kept that 5 discount until approx 3years after they switched to Digital...

      No Letter here though....Yet But again as stated by others...not willing to pay a extra 10 per month...to see the same as what I see now

      They should either drop the price of the HD Box dramatically and charge the 10 per month, or Keep the 300 for the box and not charge extra for the same programs.....

      As far as I am concerned they are reaching the ceiling with their price structure...a couple more price increases, then I'm off....I'm only staying for the Footy, but even that has its price..

      Re: Broadcaster gives loyal customers 100 discount

      Has anyone actually rang to enquire?

      afaik If you have been with Sky over 6 years it automatically applies (199.99) and they will tell you on the phone. Over 3 years rumour has it, it is 249.99

      First there was BSB, a totally seperate company, then Murdoch came along with Sky ... the two were dying, they decided to merger, he clicked his fingers and the regulators let him and thats how we have BSkyB.

      I imagine he was probably with BSB and was switched to BSkyB when they merged.

      As always the Murdoch definition of merge really means him eating up a company ... he ran the new company, despite the fact the two companies were pretty much equals ...

      Re: Broadcaster gives loyal customers 100 discount

      ^^ Some more info here:

      British Satellite Broadcasting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      The HD offer is a loyalty bonus available to customers, if you have been with sky for more than 6 years you get a box for 199, more than 3 years its 249..... As far as I am aware we are not sending letters out about it, when a customer rings us we do a "tenure" check on the account and it comes up with the price applicable.
      ^^ unofficial PM sent to me yesterday

      I hope mine is 199.99
