      Can't cope with all the excitement, first my Mid goes up to 10/ month, then I hear they are going to reduce the cap by 75%, and now stick 1.00 on the TV bill.
      The good news just keeps on coming.

      In all fairness a 1 is neither here nor there. Other things would go up as well, Cinema entry, popcorn, sweets for the kids.

      Its still cheaper to stay in then go out, especially when you have kids.

      As for the BB side of things, nothing concrete yet.

      I am in the same boat as you and those are my thoughts as well. While 1 is neither here or there was the increase in Vat back to 17.5% on the 1 January next year that will add another 50p onto the bill so we are paying more for less (if the reduction on Mid broadband is correct).

      1 may not be a huge sum but as a percentage increase it is huge - around a 7% increase for basic TV. With CPI inflation currently running at 2.2% (RPI is minus 1.1%), how can that be justified?

      Imagine if everything you bought went up by 7% in September.

      So when are we going to be told officially about this increase. I got my letter today with my sky mag and it makes no mention of the TV subs increase. Infact it talks about the VAT going back up from January 2010 and it says first bill in the new year will be 50p more but does not take into account this increase.

      well it says about the price increase in my letter with the sky mag, the price is totally wrong as they haven't put the HD subs in but the price increase on the basic package is there.

      Odd then as it doesn't say anything on mine. All I have is this:

      My December bill will be 46.74 and then 47.00 in January 2010. I am currently paying 46.50.

      There is no mention of the increase or have I missed something. My package is Sports Mix + 2 mixes and Sky Broadband Mid @ 10.

      I have just opened my Sky Mag and my cost is going up from 46 to 47.50 for Sky World, or in other words 1.50 which is less than 7% unless I have got my sums wrong?

      It looks like those people on the lower packages have the higher percentage increase, which just does not make sense.
