      I might be being dense, but surely the TV pack plus movie pack price has to be the 26 quoted above it?

      There's two separate packs for Movies.

      Sky Movies 1

      Sky Movies 2

      If you have either of them, its 26 a month, or if you choose Sky Movies Pack, this would then give you both, at 34 according to Sky's website.

      Maybe the wording needs more clarification?

      Changed the wording. The original text was what we had received via an agency.

      Thanks, that explains it. Makes the deal less attractive as well though.

      Re: Sky - Pricing for November 2008

      I am trying to get definite clarification.

      The banners say Sky TV and Sky Movies - 26 a month, however Sky's site, on selection in the cart says as I have quoted above.

      The T and C's say:

      Sky Movies M&S Voucher offer: New Sky TV subscribers only. You must take a package with Sky Movies 1 and/or 2 (from 26 a month) for 12 months. If you decide to change your package to one that doesn't include Sky Movies you may be charged 50 or alternatively you must return your vouchers. Limited to one per household. Vouchers sent within 30 days of Sky TV activation and subject to separate t&c's. Offer ends 30 November 2008.

      Re: Sky - Pricing for November 2008

      thats a ripp-off and if you ask for sky movies 1 they will add the full pack/mix/channels
      and for existing customers you can have sky+ or hd for the same price? thats not right
