I think I've mentioned previously that in the past couple of months Sky employees have had a friends & family code allowing them to invite new customers to Sky for a large reduction in the initial (sky box) and monthly (package) payments.

There is now a new code that is available to Sky employees that enables CURRENT Sky subscribers to upgrade; Sky - Sky+ / Sky+ - SkyHD. I've just got Sky HD for an overall cost of £135; 75 for the box and 60 installation. Considering I was going to pay £310 a couple of months ago and then £210 this month, I think this is a bit of a bargain.

The only problem people may have is knowing someone who works for Sky! Thought I'd put it out there anyway, it may be of use to a few people

JohnDuncan:Don't get Sky, get Freesat.

I'd prefer to get the HD movies and sports, thanks for the offer though!

Also, if you have friends who don't have Sky, there's a similar offer here for new customers

Quite!

I have to admit I've had many arguments with Sky in the past 2 or 3 months, it's been something of a journey trying to get HD on the cheap. As much as Sky have the monopoly and continue to charge (comparatively to freesat) through the nose, I think the offers above are finally bringing their HD service into a more affordable and realistic price point.

I already have sky but my contract period ended years ago. Do you know if its possible for me to cancel my subscription then get a friend to implement the deal where we both get the HD box for £75 or do Sky have a system in place to stop people doing this?

Thanks

Hi,

I know someone at SKY who gave me the appropriate code and I almost ordered my 2nd HD box for the bedroom - right up until they wanted a further £10/month for the 2nd HD box! I already have multiroom but apparently multiroom does not cover an HD subscription. Subsequently didnt buy the 2nd box even though it was only £75. Would have gotten free installation too - that was only a box swap right enough as I already have Sky+ in the bedroom and therefore the necessary cabling.

Cheers,

Cofnchtr.

How did you manage to get the free (self) installation. I just phoned them up and they said they would not do this. I would pay the £150 for the box but theres no way im going to pay someone £60 to come in and swap 2 boxes over.

Hi,

The free install was a part of the friends & family offer. I already have multiroom and HD so that qualified me for free install.

Cheers,

Cofnchtr.

I'm not sure if im supposed to post up here this so i'll apologise now. If I recomend someone to sky that person and I will each get a Sky HD box for £75. I think you would have to be a new customer. Who's interested?
