      received letter with sky mag today. Subscriptions going up from 1 September for sky tv as if they are not already charging enough considering how many repeats are on there.

      There is also a double page advert in the mag for the new price. No dates listed for the start but when I called to order I was told I would have to pay 259 unless I took Sky Talk (as well as the BB I already have) after which the price would be 150 as advertised. To say I am unhappy with Sky is an understatement at the moment.

      Does anyone think it's worthwhile waiting until Sky have switched to the newer HD STB's (ie not the old Thomson ones with PS problems)? I'd like to go HD and the new offer seems about the best I'm going to get, the question is when do I order? Also I note some comment about an additional discount of 15 if you order on-line, will that aslo apply and is it an upfront discount or is it deducted from your monthly bill?

      about an additional discount of 15 if you order on-line, will that aslo apply and is it an upfront discount or is it deducted from your monthly bill?
      It will show as a credit on your bill from what I understand. As for waiting, hard to say, whether or not the new boxes are any better or not.

      Here's an image, but it don't show us anything apart from the new logo.

      Re: 1st July Sky HD will change to Sky + HD.

      It's the 1st of July. So I went on-line to apply for an upgrade to HD without multiroom from my Sky+ installation. Not easy! And Sky's maths are beyond comprehension. I currently pay 27/month and with HD would expect it to be 37. I added Sports and Sky came up with 72. Is the Sports mix really 35/month? Their maths is:

      Monthly Costs
      Current Monthly Cost 27.00
      Monthly TV Cost 35.00
      HD Mix 10.00
      Monthly Broadband Cost 5.00
      Monthly Talk Cost 5.00
      Total Monthly Costs 72.00

      One-Off Costs
      Sky HD box 150.00
      Standard Set Up 60.00
      Total One-off Costs 210.00

      Doesn't make sense. So I won't bother after all!

      Something is wrong there. The maximum at the moment is 45 for Sports and Movies, plus your HD would be another 10, and then another 10 for the Broadband and Sky Talk. Totalling - 65 per month.

      Unless he has muti-room would be a extra 10pm.So would be 75pm which I used to pay in the past on sky subs.

      I missed the good old days when I used to pay under 30pm Sky subs lol

      Sky TV Movies Sports and mixes 45pm
      Sky HD 10pm
      Sky broadband 10pm
      Sky Muti-Room 10pm

      75pm without Sky Talk WOW.

      I went back later and tried to buy the upgrade to the Sky+ HD box and didn't try the addition of Sky Sports. The result was as expected, I was charged an extra 10 for the Sky HD Mix so that takes me to 37/month. That's 35/month cheaper than trying to add Sky Sports at the same time. The box is 150 + 60 installation. Installation promised for Saturday.
