      Sky+ upgrade cost ?

      Hi,

      i currently have Sky , and my BB is with NILDRAM.

      My main objective is to move to SKY Mid BB, but thought i might take advantage of discount price on Sky+ at the same time.

      The standard price to upgrade to Sky+ appears to be 210 (150 + 60)

      But, If I order at the same time as Sky Mid BB, and take the Talk Unlimited, the price goes down to 135

      and the 25 BB installation fee is waived

      and if I order online i get an extra 15 kick back

      So, effective price is 95 , which sounds pretty tempting.

      However , a couple of questions .......

      Is that installation price guaranteed ?

      When I had Sky installed, I asked a local firm to do it and they charged extra because I'm on the 3rd floor. They used normal ladders, but I guess I'm at borderline H&S limits.

      Could the Sky Installer refuse to do the job or ask for additional payment, or do SKY absorb such occasional costs ?

      If they did refuse, would I still get the free BB installation ?

      I'm not convinced I need the talk unlimited package, do I need to keep it for a minimum period to keep the sky+ discount ?

      Am I missing anything, or are there better deals out there ?
      Any ideas ?

      Thanks
      David

      Re: Sky+ upgrade cost ?

      You'll probably need the "special heights team" from Sky. You should tell them the exact height of your dish when you book. The standard ladders probably aren't long enough so you'll simply waste everyone's time if you don't tell them.

      Can't comment on cost. Sky decides its own charges.
