      Early Contract Termination for someone leaving UK

      Hi All,

      I joined Sky in late October last year and now I'm moving out of UK for good. I was wondering if I need to pay any cancellation charges for early termination.

      I remember when I signed for sky I had clearly mentioned the guy over phone that I'm here for 6 months and they said that I would be able to leave Sky after 6 months without any charges.

      Also, I do not want to carry along the Sky box with me, do they take it back?

      Thanks, Abhinav

      You'd need to have your phone call listened to as you will be subject to an early leaving charge. The guy on the phone would have been incorrect to say you were not subject to a charge.

      Also the box is yours to do with as you please (ebay).

      Thanks for the information, I do not understand why Sky do not want to take the box, they can re-sell that to new connection users.

      Also, do you have an idea if I can transfer the contract to someone else?

      It's simply not Sky's box anymore, it's yours. No different to buying a DVD player from Comet and then deciding you don't want it anymore.

      Simplest way to transfer would be to just change the DDI. NOt sure if you can actually change the ownership of the contract.

      Thanks again, what's a DDI? Also found lot of ads for Sky HD box (which I have) in Gumtree for 30 - 60. Wonder why will one buy it. Also is there an use of taking this to India..there we have a Tata Sky DTH service in Collaboration with Sky, UK.. don't know if the box would be compatible there.

      Ring Sky, tell them you are moving house and would like the service to go with you, they will ask for the new address.

      Give them the details and wait for them to click where it is, and they will then advise you that they cannot provide the service and the contract will be cancelled with no further payment other than maybe a months notice required.
