      new customer deals

      Is it possible to cancel my sky subscription and have my wife start a new one to get sky+ ? I asked for a price today and was told 160 for sky+ box even though I've been with them for 8 years and have paid them several thousand pounds during that time. It really cheeses me off the way they treat loyal customers.

      It really annoys me when people swear on a forum read by all ages.

      What, because we don't allow swearing on a forum?

      In answer to your question, I think Sky would decline the offer to sign up as it normally says per household on the terms and conditions.

      To the OP:
      Yes it is def possible. Just make out its a diffrent household. Dont tell them that you already had sky. (TBH they proberbly wornt even ask - personally exp).

      Sign up using same address, but all other details under your wife's name.

      Why not tell them you want to cancel and switch to Virgin?

      I dont think that works anymore.

      The lady I spoke to was an absolute 'female dog'. ANd basically told me to bugger off to virgin.
