      Sky - Key Pricing - February 2008

      There is only a slight amendment to Sky’s pricing this month compared to January. Sky HD box pricing of £249 is no longer an online exclusive it is across all sales channels. Below are the key pricing points.

      Credit and Installation Costs

      1. No online credit in February
      2. Standard Installation is £30
      3. Half price standard Installation if a Premium Mix (Sports or Movies) is taken. £15 will be credited to the customers account once activated

      Product Pricing

      1. Sky+ is £99 (no matter what package is taken out)
      2. Sky HD box is now £249 (was £299)
      3. Sky HD for £199 when taken with broadband, talk AND Multiroom
      4. Existing Customers standard set up is £60 for taking any Sky box and combination of Sky products, or £0-60 for existing customers talking Sky Broadband alone (Base - £60 Mid or Connect - £30 Max - £0).
      5. No charge for set up of Sky Talk.
      6. Where Broadband is bought in the same transaction as TV equipment, the Broadband Activation fee is waived. Installation fee still applies

      Am I reading correctly, do sky expect an existing customer on Sky+ broadband and sky talk, who wish to upgrade to an HD Box to pay £60 installation costs and if so, can the said existing customer demand a new dish LNB cabling etc as a new customer would get for half the price. Or can you opt for self install and pay £0?.

      Not trying to defend here, when you sign up as new customer to Sky, Sky give you a new signup discount or in simple words, subsidise the costs. As an existing customer, there is no subsidy left, as you have already taken advantage of it.

      As for the other questions I don't know

      Mavellous, I signed up November and it was a £30 setup charge for Max, but now sky have dropped the £30 setup fee for Max. And I am a full package subscriber with multiroom. Oh well, win some, lose some.
