      WOW 30% increase!!! Makes sky's annual increase look very small!

      And a really generous saving for paying annually in advance!

      For me that suggests Setanta are in financial trouble, They offer annual to get more money up front and have to do excessive increase?????? Are they going the ITVDigital way?

      Re: Setanta Price Changes

      I have absolutely no idea, we got sent this on 28th May, unfortunately with getting ready for going to London for our secret Sky HQ tour, I completely forgot about it.

      Have to agree though its a huge increase.

      I agree normally a company offers some form of financial incentive to pay up front either with a discount or a month free. not in this case though, and if they are in trouble would you chance paying a whole years in advance ? Perhaps its a case of the bubble beginning to burst

      Beware about canceling Setanta. They don't take no for an answer and will hound you for weeks. I wrote to them three times and phoned them about six times before they stopped hassling me. Make sure you cancel your direct debit immediately you give them notice of cancellation.

      Re: Setanta Price Changes

      Anyone know why it will cost 2 more to watch via Sky than via Freeview, seems a little unfair. I'm glad I have never subscribed to Sentanta as their coverage of sport in general I have heard leaves a lot to be desired.
