      Keep it quiet, but for everyone who had Sky TV before September 2011 Sky froze their prices. Come this September a lot of people are going to see their prices rise.

      Shhhhh though, you wouldn't want to up set anyone

      It's interesting that the lead time is now up from two weeks to three. BTO are being kept busy!

      But only by 5, if I remember correctly, and even then it's only if you want to stay on Entertainment+ and not go down to just Entertainment.

      Not what i was hinting at.

      Prior to September last year I had 3 of the Entertainment pack genres. I now have Entertainment+ at the same cost.

      I have just had a look on-line and come September I am expecting my package to rise by just over 15. This is based on the current prices.

      same here, just had music pack, knowledge pack & something else, since september I now have everything apart from ESPN, MUTV & Chelsea TV. Sky Sports will be coming off after then end of the football season and may not go back on if the price is going to go up in Sept

      I might be missing something, eg a price rise for Entertainment+ come Sept 1, but I am currently paying 20.50 for all Sky TV channels (except sport, movies, HD) as I also benefited from the price freeze (BTW it was possible to get E+ by being on just 2 packs pre September '11) . At current prices, E+ is 25pm which makes it just a 5pm increas in September.
