      Still 65 if you pay for Sky+ but not for any Sky channels?

      I'm only taking the Sky+ service, which costs me 10 a month, and not any of Sky's digital channels (I just get the free ones). So I am a Sky customer, but I'm not a digital subscriber.

      So I was wondering whether I'd be still eligible for the Sky 65 callout charge to fix a problem?

      (In case you're wondering, doing it through another company would cost me a lot more than 65, so I'd like to do it through Sky if possible).

      Would assume you will have to pay the charge as your using their equipment

      He want's to know if Sky will do the call for 65 even though he does not subscribe to a TV package.

      I would imagine they will, but a phone call will save all the guessing

      >Ring and ask

      Easy in theory, but in practise the Sky CS employees get very confused about people in my position, and it takes me a long time to get things straight.

      So if I know the official position before calling them it makes things much easier. (And I'm more likely to get the official position from here than from Sky CS.)
