      Reducing costs of HD package.

      Hi there. Trying to helpmy mum reduce her costs. We have the variety package with sports that costs 79 a month. After my dad's recent death, we want to reduce our subscription as mum diesn't watch sports or movies, but watches the other channels a lot. What's the best package to ask for and what should it cost? So we know what to ask for from the Sky customer service without getting the runsround? Help please!

      Probably best to remove sports and keep the Variety pack which is 32 per month but if she calls with the intention of cancelling Sky TV altogether (instead of just downgrading) there may be a financial incentive in the form of a reduced subscription for agreeing to re-contract for a further twelve months.

      Off topic I know but did you get the problem with your Sky viewing card sorted out?

      Variety + Sports + HD is 71.50 so you might have Chelsea/MU/Liverpool TV and not be on direct debit to get to 79/month.

      Change to Family which will be 38/month if you use Kids, Documentaries, MTV Music and Eurosports but want to keep HD.

      If you don't use them but want HD and have old HD pack then Original and HD is cheaper which could be as 34.50/month or even less if, as Seawright said, you get a discount from retention.

      Potentially Original with HD could be 29/month for 12m.
