Will do mate, just getting a rough figure before calling them but will let you know.I pay £78 a month for phone, 50mb broadband and TV package without Sky Sports or Movies.
We've realised that we watch f**k all on it really apart from the free view channels. When I get time I'm going to ring them and see what the basic TV and broadband package is.
Let me know what price they give you.
What does that include? Is that with Fibre optic broadband or just TV?Hi i have the basic sky package its £30.00 ish
I am debating between the two to be fair. I thought pricing would be similar as they are two competitors though.£78 seems very expensive for the lowest TV! Virgin is £40 something with sports.
Ah, wouldn't need the multiroom I don't think. Out of interest though, how much extra p/m did that add on to your bill?I have the full Sky HD package (all TV except the PPV stuff, phone and broadband) and pay £72/pm. That's also with one Multiroom box.
I think my brother moved over to Sky because of TiVo - what were the issues with it?Currently sixty pounds for virgin tv, phone, Internet with sports and movies and an extra box. Pretty much everything maxed out. It goes up to £102 after 9 months.
Virgin tv, TiVo is utter shite, the minute I'm out of contract I'm going back to sky for TV.
Not a bad deal. Guess it's alright if you're a pre-existing customer. I would pay that all day long.I was paying £42 for Sky, basic package with discovery channels and HD. Single box. Called them to cancel last week as it was just taking the piss for something I barely watch. Knocked it straight down to £25 a month for 12 months.
I can live with that.
I've seen a lot of the "£x.xx for 12 months and then.." but surely they'd tie you in to a minimum of 18 months so they can rape you for the money after your 12 months?We've recently just got Sky internet and full TV package for around £40 a month for 12 months. We just got a letter through the door with the offer. After the 12 months, we'll be cancelling as it'll end up being like £80 or something daft!
I've only ever heard bad things about TalkTalk to be fair, that's why I hadn't considered them. Rubbish speeds, loss of connection a lot and so on.£20 for sky's cheapest package.
£35 for talk talk fibre.
It's painfully slow, and I just can't get on with the way the menus are all laid out. It will play 5.1 surround on anything live, but as soon as you record something it loses the ability to put out 5.1 which is frustrating.I think my brother moved over to Sky because of TiVo - what were the issues with it?
That may be something to check actually, pretty sure we double checked and it was only for 12 months.I've seen a lot of the "£x.xx for 12 months and then.." but surely they'd tie you in to a minimum of 18 months so they can rape you for the money after your 12 months?

I think they offered it to me for £7/month or something. Which makes sense to me - the Mrs can watch her shite tv upstairs then, out of my way, so I don't need to listen to Hollyenders or whatever.Ah, wouldn't need the multiroom I don't think.

I was the same - I was paying well over £100/month at one stage. Called them up, got a decent deal on my TV package (as said, I have everything inc HD) and I have unlimited Broadband too. To top it all I actually found Sky's customer service to be really good, when I took out Multiroom I had my old box services FOC, and free Sky Go Extra (which I don't even use!)Had it as £30p/m for the last year with Sky and Broadband on a half price thingy. Has recently gone up to £60, but i CBA to phone up and try and haggle.
