      Sky To Allow Self Install on Sky+HD?

      Unconfirmed.

      Rumour has it, existing customers who have Sky+ and a landline connection will be able to save 30 on Sky+HD by doing a self install. ie just pay 49 for the box and 30 delivery charge it it will be yours.

      I would love to know how they could justify charging 30 for delivery?

      30 is for delivery and nothing more otherwise they are in breach of the law for misrepresentation.

      So the question is, how can they justify 30 when it would be more like 15.

      I think 15 is being exceptionally generous! It can be done for under 10 fully insured and that's a one off price not a massively reduced contract price for zillions of parcels which Sky will have negotiated!

      The update to HD process involves a phone call (at your expense and at Sky's extortionate call cost rates) and a couple of presses on a keyboard by Sky to activate your card. That's more than paid for while you queue waiting for a real human being to actually answer the bloody phone!

      ..........amazing how the price always manages to end up at 79 don't you think?

      Well considering the expense of the HD receiver, I think you are being unfair.

      I wonder what will happen when an end user cocks it up and damages the receiver?

      I think the 30 is fair, but 15 / 20 could be even more attractive. I also believe a lot more people would get HD because of this decision, at the end of the day, everyone has been asking for this for years, and the process looks like it is now being kickstarted.

      It makes perfect sense for Sky to offer this, and I for one, am glad that they actually listened on this front, even though it don't affect me.
