      Try Again on 01506 831 006
      Is the total payment 105, and you avoided the 10 per month HD subs? Was the HD subs ever mentioned by Sky's staff?

      What subs did you already have before ordering the HD box? Don't mean to pry but maybe you already have multi-room, movie subs etc? I only have the basic 1 mix subs.

      yes he confirmed 75 for the box and 30 install(twice) but im going to try for the 15 credit on the website so i cancelled.
      i had 1 mix and multiroom and had added movies a few days before ,i tried to get the 5pm for 3 months , well i couldnt cause i didnt get the leaflet ,but i got half price movies for 3 months because i was on 1 mix.
      when i tried it on the website is detailed my offer on the movies when i clicked upgrade my package, i pay 7.50 until 23/12( ooooh)then im cancelling.
      anyway the first people said after i have told them what i want- thats with the hd mix subscription(but didnt say 12 months or anything like it)

      so to summarise - if you want cheap movies ask about the 1 mix half price offer(then cancel in december) and then try again online , if not then ring up and be firm..(listen carefully if they say 12 hd subs to you?)

      I've been following your thread with great interest in order to get a good deal on a new sky box and multiroom sub for for my grandparents house. Anyway I went through the online signup form and got the following error (even after multiple attempts)



      So, I called the number, as shown, the first attempt I got through to someone who agreed that they would give the deal as shown online because of the error. He said he was going to forward me to another department to sort it out, however the line dropped after a few minutes waiting, and I had to redial...

      This is when the story gets weird; on the second occasion I was put through to a middle aged sounding women who was rather well spoken. I explained the situation, and unbelievably she said "no, we can't offer that, you'll have to pay 60 installation", to which i retorted that it wasn't my fault their online system was faulty and wasn't processing my order, and she said "well they have to pay my wages you know!"...

      I couldn't believe it lol, she went on to basically say that it was unreasonable for me to suggest that I should get the offer over the phone as the on-line because I would be skimming her wages?!

      I then told her it was not my fault or problem that their web division hadn't gotten their system working properly, and clearly I was not responsible for paying her wages... She said I should try again online tomorrow or something.

      I was left rather taken aback!
      Yesterday, online I also got the same message, Error we are sorry ring--- blah-- blah tried to ring, got the dreaded we will answer asap music, then the line went dead, tried again today and got the same result. So I did not even get he chance to speak to anybody think I'll leave it for now

      Will I be able to order this even if my current Sky box is the original give-a-way one and not a Sky+ box?

      Just put my order in online for next Tuesday Will Sky replace the original cable when they run the second cable around the house from the LNB or is that down to me! (to be real nice to the installation guy!)

      Re: Sky+ HD Box is now Half Price

      Ask the installer to use dual core cable, that way you only need one cable instead of two.
