      Cost of new Sky+ box

      I have had a Sky+ box for nearly 2 years but my TV repair man says its died and I need to replace the box.
      He reckons it will cost 65 installation and 65 for a new box?
      I have 2 other sky boxes in the house and 2 multi room subscriptions,broaband and Sky talk so I cant threaten to leave Sky.

      Before I ring Sky to ask the cost how much should I expect to pay for a new box ?

      I would ring sky and try and do a deal with them.I would not pay the 65 install charge just to change over receiver.

      If you call Sky they will charge 65 for whatever is required, there will be no install charge.

      65 is the most you will pay even for a replacement receiver.

      Sky do not normally 'do deals' over dead 2 year old boxes. It's a flat rate 65 callout for a replacement box. If you threaten the 'I'll cancel' routine, even as a multiroom etc subscriber, they may grant your wish, and cut you off. Be careful what you threaten - you may get it.

      Your 65 gets you an installer visit - and another box. Where did your TV man get the idea of two 65 charges? I'm surprised he didn't try to flog you another tv as well. And how does he know the box is dead? No standby light? Stuck in standby? Have you spoken with Sky? How about changing the plug? lol
