We current pay £120 for sky tv, multiroom & £40 for broadband. The broadband is included in the £120 I think this is way too high. What packages do you have & how much do you pay?

Thanks in advance

Do you need Sky? We dont have any TV packages, we just watch ordinary TV plus Netflix and Amazon video. I think our Broadband is about £22 per month

I have the entertainment package, box sets, landline and broadband and it’s £42 a month.

Dancer12345 Mon 21-Jan-19 21:27:39

Sorry, £40.

I don't have my broadband through sky it's through bt and I can't cancel it yet (angry I can't wait to I feel like they are robbing me) but for the entertainment package & box sets for sky (everything without sport and movies) I pay £21 a month. I had to cancel for about a month and they kept coming back and coming back with lower prices. I'm happy with that price though.

I pay the same as you op.
It is very expensive, I am seriously thinking of shopping around now.
We watch alot of sport so would love to find something that still includes that.

Watching with interest - ours is now up there £120 a month after an introductory offer. We were going to ring up and take off movies and sport see if it brought it down much.

Anyone any tips for haggling with Sky?

Just say you need to leave because you can't afford it. They will then give you a deal....worked for me!

Ask to be passed to cancellations, tell them you can’t afford it anymore and have to reduce or leave.

I did this two weeks ago and got all new kit, Sky Q upgrade, removed a package I don’t use and knocked £40 a month off

Lou0219 Mon 21-Jan-19 21:35:34

I have called & told them it’s too high they offered me £30 off which sounds a lot but we are still paying £90 a month which is still too high imo x

I pay £12 a month for just ordinary Sky.

Sky q tv entertainment package, line rental and fibre broadband for £27.99 a month

Toomanycats99 Mon 21-Jan-19 21:42:34

Don't take the first offer. Cancel tv and then ring them about 2 weeks into the 4 week cancellation period. Then again as late as you can hold your nerve!

I have got sky q tv inc boxsets, a second box, unlimited broadband, line rental and unlimited calls any time for £62.

knocking sports and movies off should bring that down quite a bit. They may offer to do sorts and movies for free for a month or two but if you can't afford it then get it taken off.

@Lou0219 so am I right in thinking you pay 160 per month!! For sky and broadband!!??? That is crazy money...sorry

We don’t pay either. Internet comes off my phone (unlimited deal) 35 per month and no tv here just Netflix (which is my mums account that she lets us use as we don’t actually use it often at all)

Twickerhun Mon 21-Jan-19 21:58:12

Phone, broadband, sky go, sky sports but not movies for £50something I think

lunar1 Mon 21-Jan-19 22:10:33

Ring them, we have just about everything they do for £77 a month. Every time it's almost finished we ring again and they extend it for 18 months.

Turquoisetamborine Mon 21-Jan-19 22:30:55

We pay £70 pm for Sports, Movies, kids channels, broadband and phone line. I think that’s quite good.

Turquoisetamborine Mon 21-Jan-19 22:31:21

Oh and Sky Go

Frazzled2207 Mon 21-Jan-19 22:48:00

I can't believe you are paying that much per month for tv?
I just pay for Netflix which is about £8 a month. Plus super fast broadband which is probably £45.

Mummylife2018 Mon 21-Jan-19 22:58:00

I don’t understand this... I pay £30 per month for every channel (except movies & sports) on Sky Q (only one box), broadband and landline with anytime extra (18 month contract). Why are some of you paying so much?

DustyMaiden Mon 21-Jan-19 23:02:58

I was paying £114. I cancelled, now I’m paying £26 for everything including sports, not movies and £20 for broadband.
Saving £60 per month.

DustyMaiden Mon 21-Jan-19 23:04:02

You get a good deal but they sneak the price up over the years

Linnet Mon 21-Jan-19 23:07:46

£39.50 a month for the entertainment package. No movies no sports. We get our broadband elsewhere.
