      Re: Free Sky+ Box

      I was gutted with this recently. I literally got sky installed start of last month after much debate. Moved over from Virgin Media.
      I ordered over the phone and got sky+ box for 99 and install for 60. I've been impressed with the service so told my dad to switch over from virgin as well. So he phones up last week and immediately without any prompting gets offered sky+ box and install completely free!
      I phoned up sky to ask how come just a few weeks before i was offered no such deal. They just said that these offers come and go. One woman even told me that i did get an offer...half price sky+ and install. she said it should cost 199 and 120. Load of twaddle if you ask me.
      They wouldn't budge though. Said that i've already paid and that was that. Bit dissapointed to be honest Though i do love sky+ I must say.

      Understandable.
      Its a bit like seeing an item on sale a week after you paid full price.
      Or telling the passenger sitting next to you on the plane how much
      you paid for the same holiday.

      Given the amount of new business this site generates for Sky you
      would think they would give NewsReader notice of the current
      special offers or even those coming soon.
      Then he could have a Sky special offer section.
      I first read the rumour about the monthly charge for Sky+ going
      in a post by NewsReader.

      yeah same here...then a couple of weeks later i got an official letter from sky confirming that the sky+ charge was gone.

      i was just annoyed with the attitude i encountered when phoning to have a moan about having to pay for my box and install when my dad gets it all free a few weeks later. they weren't even sorry they were just like 'well that's how it is..bye'. they said that i've paid for it now and thats that. thought at least they would say they understood and here's a months free service charge. but no.....zippo

      Re: Free Sky+ Box

      I've been with Sky for a few years now & last year I took on the Sky Broadband & Sky talk also ( I've not had any problems or issues with any of these ).

      My Brother installed Sky+ a few weeks back & after musing playing with it decided that I would upgrade my Standard box to Sky plus at teh end of the month.

      Remarkably, last Friday, I got home to find a crd from Sky, offering me a free Sky+ box at no extra cost. All I'd have to do is pay 30 towards the installation!

      Too good an opportunity to miss, so I called & am being upgraded in early July.

      I guess this counts as Sky giving some perks to their existing customers.

      Nice one Sky

      Thanks for posting this iandlm.
      However, it does not count in the way you suggest.
      All it shows is that some (at least one) existing customer
      received a perk.
      I trust this will encourage others to post and then maybe we can
      make a better evaluation.
      Or better yet, perhaps Sky will tell us all, or someone at Skyuser
      that these special perks exist.

      Re: Free Sky+ Box

      Suggestion to the moderators.
      I would like to suggest that the great post by iandlm #34
      is used to start a new feature or thread called something like:

      Incentives for existing Sky Customers
      and
      Incentives for new Sky customers.

      Especially as the original incentive for NEW
      customers, headlined below, has ended.
      "Be a great mate.
      Give a friend a free Sky+ box with free
      standard installation. Worth 159."

      I know Skyuser is not connected to BSkyB but surely
      Sky should be pleased to promote these perks.
      iandlm seems to have received a perk not because he
      asked for it, or as compensation for poor service.

      It seems to have arrived in the post out of a
      clear blue Sky.
