      This post: http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-h...tml#post411805 suggests that the 49 offer is only for non HD subscribers, willing to subscribe to the EE+ package.
      Otherwise it's 149.

      Makes no sense that been paying the 10.25 charge for ages now yet it u havent paid it u get a cheaper box, I will not pay 149 for it as that is robbery, i cant begin to imagine the thousands i have paid sky over the past 15 years and when i need a new box i get ripped off.

      You've got a point.

      Have you checked your 'my sky' page at sky.com?
      You never know, there might be an offer there. I had one once.

      Personally, if i'd been a subscriber for 15 years, never asked for any special treatment & currently had a broken box, i'd give them a (nice, warm, friendly) call.

      I'm not joking.
      In my experience, (& not just with sky) if you actually get to speak to someone & explain how you feel, as opposed to what you think, positive outcomes ensue.

      Re: 2TB Box

      Just to get things straight, you have a functioning Sky+HD box and a broken Sky+ box and you don't have multi room, but you want Sky to replace your broken box with a new 2Tb one for 49? That's hardly likely.

      If you take multi room you can get a 2 Tb box for 49, provided you take or have the HD pack.

      If you want to upgrade your HD box, its 149 plus p&p for self install. No way round it I'm afraid.

      Sky+HD 2TB box: 49 for Sky TV customers taking Sky Entertainment Extra+ or existing Sky+HD customers adding Sky Multiroom (10.25pm per box). Existing Sky+HD customers are entitled to one 149 box,

      I would do this but there is a 60 set up charge, we had multiroom before but
      got rid of it, surely this can be seglg setup?
