      I have phoned SKY and complained about the Amstrad 780 boxes and have been advised that on the 26th May 11, SKY will be offering two deals to all existing sky users as follows;

      1) New 1tb box for 149.00 (usual price 249.00)
      2) New 1tb box for 49.00 if multiroom is also taken out.

      I advised them that I already have multiroom that is out of contract and they advised me to cancel it and they will reorder with my new box.... Too good an offer to refuse and I have taken it. You do not have to take out a deal with SKY broadband, as I am with O2 and will be until the end of the year.

      Is this for Amstrad 780 owners only? Have they put you through on the offer or will you have to ring back on the 26th?

      I am interested in the 1tb box but the minimum sky offer me is 299.

      Its for all users, who do not already have the new 1tb box and they have taken my order to be processed on the 26th. To make sure this happens, I have taken the name of the person I have spoken to and she will phone me on the 26th once completed... I hope.

      thanks psdmc. I just rang sky. Got put straight through as the system detected i must be having a few issues :-) I menioned the 1tb box offer and got told there is no such offer and no news of any offer starting. "Try sky .com" which i did. They want the full price on there still. I reminded the nice lady i spoke to that the offer starts tomorrow. She put me on hold. then came back and said YES there is an offer. She said she could process this for my account tomorrow. She will even ring me back on my mobile during an hour slot as specified by me!. 1tb and would move the 780 upstairs for 49.99 plus 30 installation. Or a self install for 15. Heres to progress........ i hope.

      so in order to get a free service NOW, you're spending 50 + 30 plus I assume paying an additional monthly subscription for multi-room?

      And further news, it looks like from September Sky will be making the HD subscription available on accounts only and not per box, so if you have two HD boxes that both take the HD sub you will only pay one HD fee, good news at last. This is taken from DS btw.
