      I don't know, its a bit sketchy, however the biggest problem is your exisiting contract.

      BB is for 12 months as everyone knows and when I tried to threaten to leave, they said I could not as I had 11 months on my contract. I didn't want to leave just wanted cheap Sky+ and tried it on. Although it was not clear whether they mean't my TV contract or my BB one, I presume just the BB one.

      hmm, have to wait and see then. Not a problem for me personally, but me sister only has 2 mixes and pays the tenner for sky+ and got Sky Base BB in August.

      Spose August isn't too far away from July thou!

      You are tied int due to the T&C of the BB contract,you cant leave TV because of the BB as you couldnt get the BB without the TV.

      Re: Something big is on the cards....

      So in that case, if you have to threaten to leave to get the deal, a lot of people are not going to get the deal, as we all know that we have signed a 12 month contract for BB.

      What would be smart is that everyone, new and old, could get this deal anyway.

      We will just have to wait and see I suppose.

      I will be honest with you, i took the July 1st date from the Digital Spy sit, but it didnt mean anything to me Until Monday morning, trust me the ball is rolling and in 2 months give or take 2 or 3 days it will be gone.

      I don't have Sky+ at the moment and unless there was no subscription charge I wouldn't get it. I also wouldn't leave Sky as I'm enjoying their broadband service too much and because of the saving.

      I thought everybody has Sky+, I also don't have it and have no plans to get it either.
