we have sky plus hd, but after yet another argument with sky, becuase they charge me for everything that i dont have, im looking elsewhere. we have told sky we want to cancel, but i dont really want to go back to basic freeview. I guess money wise will be a help, but I love my sky.
Virgin dont supply my area, despite putting leaflets through my door once a month.

We've got sky hd pack with kids. Channels. I looked into virgin but it only saved us 6.50 a year so not worth the hassle.

We've got Sky+ with everything but the movies.

We have Sky+, we don't have sports or movies.
As we have broadband with them too, H's work cover the cost as part of his expenses, as he sometimes works from home.
Could you get Netflix or similar?

Free view here with a recordable box. I've had sky in the past and really don't feel like we're losing out on anything.

We have Sky+HD with everything except movies. Sky will normally offer you a deal if you threaten to cancel.

Do any of you ever have problems with sky? This month they tried to take £112 out of my account, last month £95, when my package should be £36.50 a month. Iv had enough as iv now incurred bank charges for a bounced direct debit. After last month, they told me they would reset my bill as such so i shouldn recieve a bill this month, Im so annoyed and they are not helpful when trying to resolve. Iv had problems similar to this in the past, when i moved my phone and broadband. They used to do similar then.

No, I've never had any problems with them

Virgin here, XL package I think it is - we moved to Virgin about a year ago and the only channel we miss is Sky Atlantic (well, MrDD does, I'm not that bothered!)
When we threatened to leave sky, they wouldn't offer us anything despite the fact we were deadly serious - when the phone call came a week or so after we'd cancelled offering us a better deal they were too late!

We have freesat so it comes through the sky satellite but no sky channels just loads of other ones. Once you've paid for the digibox, there's no monthly cost. We bought one where we can record two things at once or watch one, record one. It's great .

They havnt offered us anything either.

We just have freeview, can't afford anything else! In all honesty though we very rarely get the time to watch anything so it doesn't bother us.

Sky Plus with everything + ESPN

Sky Plus with everything + ESPN
wss (plus internet plus phone).
i've called them up many a time and threatened to cancel, and they've *always* given us a discount - i'm sure for a short while we were paying something ridiculous like £30 for everything.
do you ask to be put through to the cancellations dept, or do you just speak to customer services?

We have Sky+ HD with childrens channels and some sports, no movies. I have thought about changing but not got around to it yet
