      I did think you could get your first HD box free. At the moment they are also giving 100 M&S vouchers. Sky Bundles - Deals & Offers - Get the best Sky TV and Broadband Bundles online

      Just for the record I paid over 200 for my HD box when I upgraded from Sky+ a few years back. If I recall correctly I paid over 100 for the Sky+ box. I have wished many times that I had waited.

      Early adopters never get anything and always pay through the nose - an expensive lesson I have learnt many a time!

      Do the registration (aka click the "Get it Now") as I think thats why I got sent the letter in the end.
      Heres hoping anyway for you guys, at least you know sky *might* cut you a similar deal on the phone especially if you mention the fact they are sending letters to some (which is exactly the reason I posted it here )

      I got the letter today and phoned Sky when I got home from work. After much confusion (the sales person had no idea about the offer) she confirmed that I could have the 1TB box at the 149 price as a self install (i.e. I get to keep the Thompson box). Now that's what I call a result.

      Re: Sky sent me a letter offering a free replacement hd box (currently have a thompso

      So we still have to pay for another new box?
      Is there an option to 'upgrade'/replace for 30? I don't think I would use 1TB, so would just like a normal capacity box with Anytime+ enabled.
      Suppose just have to wait for the letter now....
