      I got a card the other day, offering Sky bb at only 16Mb, and also Sky TV without line rental. Is it legit? I didnt think you could get Sky without phone?

      If it was from Sky then you would have a direct number to call Sky.

      However you are correct in pointing out that if you have Sky Broadband, then you must also take out Sky Talk.

      However if you take out a TV package, then you will normally be required to connect the STB to a land line for the first 12 months.

      Interesting, I wonder if Sky have found that people don't want to swap their phones over and are trying a little something out to see if it more people would buy the BB etc

      BB cannot be added without talk and I don't see that changing (there was an issue with supplying sky LLU broadband down an unbundled phone service like talktalk from what i understand).

      Was likely a mailshot offering free line rental in the format of "this is what you pay for", their letters have terrible formats.
