      Ordering just Q silver no Mini

      Has anyone been able to order a Silver box only.

      I don't need a Mini as well but the extra storage (or rather same storage as current 2tB) and extra channel record of the silver would be useful.

      The customize your package doesn't seem to allow it

      Thanks for the offer

      Point is that it should be possible to get the Silver box for a 42 sub, but I can't work out how. By lumping a mini in the sub goes up to 54

      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-q...tml#post459011 It's the Sky Q bundle / Sky Q silver box option I'm interested in. 149 set up cost

      I tried this myself, I was told the mini was "free" the only way to go for the 42 sub was to go for the standard q and not the silver. Any package including the silver was the higher cost. (So ive bought a TV for the bedroom instead )

      Just wonder if, after the initial contract period, you could return the mini and reduce your subscription charge whilst retaining the silver box.

      Re: Ordering just Q silver no Mini

      It is supposed to be a viable option according to how things are listed in the pricing table advertised at launch but i think the problem is during the initial release period even most of the sales staff are confused about what is and is not possible and give out a lot of mis-information and of cause are probably highly trying to push everyone towards the higher monthly cost option.
      I remember reading in the small legal info text at the bottom of the pages somewhere about existing customers with HD or multiroom wanting the bundle without a mini and giving a specific number to ring for more info and to follow that upgrade path but i think you find in that situation you do not qualify for the discounted up front charge of 99 and have to pay 249/299 depending on Q box which is why alot still go for the silver bundle even if dont really want the mini.
      Basically it comes down to a choice between paying an extra 200 up front cost for a standalone silver box or and extra 12/month which comes to 216 over the 18 month contract.


      Smart features fee: 249 for recording and related features with Sky Q or 299 with Sky Q Silver. Discounted to 99 if you already have Sky Broadband, Sky Movies or Sky Sports. or if you add Sky Movies or Sky Sports at their standard price, or if you add and agree to a new 18 month minimum subscriptions for Sky Broadband Unlimited or Sky Fibre/Unlimited plus Sky Talk & Line Rental at their standard price. One discount per household and not available in conjunction with other offers. Discount not available to existing Sky TV customers with HD or Multiscreen subscription upgrading to Sky Q - call 0808 160 1374 for more information on this upgrade path.
