      Sky Q upgrade - do I keep my offer price for the 18m?

      I'm tempted by the current Sky Q upgrade offer from my current HD subscription - 214 for the 2tb box and 2 x mini boxes, and 12pm extra on my sub. Right now I have a good deal on my HD sub that ends in 4 months, then it reverts to full price for the remainder of my contract (6 months). What I can't find explained anywhere is what happens with this if I upgrade to Q - will it be my current deal price + 12pm for the whole new 18m contract, or will I find in 4 months time that it shoots up to full price, and I'm stuck with that for the following 14 months??

      Your current offer will end at it's current end date and you will revert to the full price for the remaining 14mths.

      I'm in a similar posn. Best to wait till the offer runs out, renegotiate then go to sky q. If you go to sky q now, then you won't be able to renegotiate as you are tied into an 18mth contract.

      It's a bit rubbish. Even if you go to SkyQ at the same of renegotiating, the deal wth at best be 12mth (prob 10) which means 6-8mths back on full price.

      Very sneaky with their new structure.... it's what's holding me back from moving to Q.

      They key when renegotiating your TV package deal is not to get locked into a contract, the last couple of times I've gone through the cancel and resub-on-a-discount routine/faff it's been a 12 month discount term but a monthly rolling contract (so I can leave any time). This is something they seem to do very readily (basically as soon as asked without trying to claim they need to go and speak to a manager etc.).

      That said I'm actually about to switch to Sky Q myself and have heard some people are managing to get it on a 12 month contract which is what I'm going to ask for first as even with a rolling monthly contract if I get locked into Sky Q for 18 months I'm still not in a good position to negotiate when my 12 month TV package discount ends.

      Existing customers upgrading to Sky Q was a 12 months contract until recently. It is now 18 month contract for all customers.

      TV discounts (apart from Winback) are pretty much all 18 month offers now anyway.
