      wanting to upgrade to sky+

      I have been with sky for a few years now but have toyed with the idea of getting sky+. What is the best way to get this. Do I go down the route of canceling as i see that new customers are getting it all free

      Sadly Sky don't seem to want to recognise customer loyalty. I am not sure if you stop your current sky, if there is a set period before you can re apply as a 'new' customer.
      Have you tried to ring sky and enquire if there are any deals available? If you ring and they offer nothing then you could try the well if that's the case I will no longer subscribe to sky. Maybe if your lucky they might just pull something out of the bag to keep you as a customer. Don't hold your breath though.

      Let us know if you get anywhere Tom, I tried what Jos suggested and didn't get a better deal , I will wait a bit longer to see if any better offers materialise.

      Re: wanting to upgrade to sky+

      Is it really this bad for existing customers i've been wanting to upgrade to sky+ too but i was waiting for an offer to come to light!

      Is there no way to get an upgrade for existing customers?
      Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless, like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow, or it can crash! Be water, my friend. (Bruce Lee)

      if you cancel you cant get new . as you be a active custermer for 12 months on there list . best way to get all new is to cancel and get it in your wife girlfriend ect name as a new cust if there ask about your name say you split up worked for me lol
