      I don't know of any way to get it reduced as an existing customer, unless you try ringing cancellations and say that you were thinking of leaving.

      I have heard rumours that Sky are calling your bluff though, so be careful what you say.

      Cool Re: Sky + Upgrade

      Mentioning switching to Virgin usually works, certainly did for me. I got box for 49 and free installation on a Saturday. Granted the original (reconditioned) box lasted 2 weeks, but the replacement been sweet for almost a year

      I managed to get the install fee waived. Took lots of complaing though and I had just moved in to a property which alreday had the wiring for it.
