      Phoned Setanta earlier on to cancel after the recent price hike to 12.99. They offered me 7.50 for six months... so I took it :-)

      lol -Great news.

      It just don't make sense, why put the prices up and then when people ring to cancel give it cheaper? They should have left it at 9.99 and had no phone calls to cancel and also made more money.

      Tell me about it. They probably make the money back by earning 10p a minute on those 0871 numbers

      I've said it before, it shows a company in real trouble just clutching at straws to keep afloat (IMHO).

      They probably would have still had phone calls anyway seeing as the football season has finished. Sky are currently offering people various packages cheap for three months to stop them downgrading or cancelling for the same reason. They usually do offer something at the time of year.

      Re: Setanta Price Changes

      Fair comment, so that makes it even more ludicrous. Why put up the price at this point, ie when the football has finished. I would have done it ten minutes before the season started.

      Re: Setanta Price Changes

      Has anyone had any written notice from Setanta about the price rise? I know I haven't yet the direct debit guarantee cleary states that "If there is a change in the amount to be paid or the payment date, the person receiving the payment (the originator) must notify the customer in advance."
