      Can i subscribe to skysports for 1 month only?

      Hi

      I am considering subscribing to sky sports for 1 month only (august - while the ashes are on). Am i able to do this? I did read somewhere that you cant cancel until 30 days after - which i assume would mean i would be charged 2 months?

      If this is possible can you please advise how i subscribe and how i would cancel.

      thanks kindly

      Afaik the minimum subs is a month. Which again afaik is from your billing date to the next. Depending on when your billing date is during August may mean you would need to enable it part way through the preceding month. They will bill you proportionaly for this bit, then a full bill for the next month. As long as you cancel before the end of the full month you have paid for they shouldnt charge you for a second month.

      I don't think the month is tied to billing dates. They will charge pro-rata from the activation date to the end of your NEXT billing period, but you would then get a pro-rata refund on the first bill following cancellation.

      Example:

      Next billing date 1 Aug. Take out SS1 on 15 July - 1 Aug bill will be 11 + 5.50 (ish) for July 15 to Aug 31. Cancel 16 Aug (just to be sure!): 1 Sept bill should show 5.50 (ish) refund. You should also get a 5 rebate within I think 60 days if you sign up online or through your Sky box under the current offer.

      You can upgrade at any time so if you wish to add the sports that fine. If you wished to removed the sports you would need to stay with that package for 30 days, after which so long you not added other programs on, with a phone call back to sky and asked for the sports to be removed.

      thanks for info - thing is a phone call to sky can take 30 minutes! in my experience...

      sky has been great at everything - apart from length of time to answer calls

      Just push the red button or log on to Sky.com to upgrade, you will have to call back to d/g mind. You are billed in advance for your Sky, you'll probably find your next bill higher but if you only keep it for 1 month, you will be rebated on the following months bill.
