      Can I upgrade to SS 1+2 only?

      Hi All
      Am I able to upgrade to receive Sky sports 1+2 only or do I have to receive the full "mix".
      I currently have the 4 mix package wjhich costs 19 and last night I telephoned twice to upgrade to receive Sports. The first guy I spoke to said my package would go up to 36 with the full sports mix after confirming that I would want all the sport channels. (I hadn't realised that you could receive certain sport channels before he asked)

      I rang again later and another guy then told me my package would cost 38. I asked if it was possible to upgrade to receive sports 1+2 only and he told me this wasn't possible as I would have to take the full sports mix.

      Im only going to subcribe to either Sky sports or Setanta (for the football only) and am still undecided which is the better option

      Thanks for any advice

      Sky sports 1 and 2 is the mix, with 3 and Extra being Free and being bonus channels when you get the Sports Mix, you can have Sports 1 or 2 which is what I have (SS1), which means you wont 3 and extra and either 1 or 2

      I have 4 mix and SS1 which costs 28 per month, that price of 38 though is wrong, I used to have Sports mix and 4 mix at a cost of 36 which is what the first guy quoted you.

      What surprised me was that Sky Sports News and Eurosport isn't on the sports mix but is on the news & culture which is a rip off.

      As for which is the better option, it's a tough choice. Sky have the better Premier League games, but I also enjoy watching the Bundesliga and French (don't know why I bother with the French sometimes though!). Problem with having both is the SPL games clash with the EPL and I think the Spanish games will clash with some too.

      If you upgrade to Sky Sorts Mix you get 10 crdit. I cancelled the mix to go on to SS1 on Monday, saw an advert on Tuesday, upgraded on Wednesday after the full month will cancel so for 1 month only have the full sporty mix and 4 mixes for 26 (instead of being 36) before going up to 28 when I downgrade after a month.

      I upgraded to Sports 1, and also got Sports Xtra free.

      Is Xtra normally free with SS1.

      We have Single Sports and Dual Sports. Single Sports = Sky Sports 1 OR Sky Sports 2. Dual = Sports 1, 2, 3 and Extra.
