    Advice sought about cancelling Sky for a period and then resubscribing

    Just wondering if anyone here has cancelled Sky, for whatever reason, and then rejoined after a period of some time. Are there advantages to be had as a (sort of) new subscriber? Are any accrued benefits from the original membership saved and re-applied? That sort of thing. Many thanks.

    Multiroom and UHD charge potentially being split. HD fee may also change

    Unconfirmed but sounds like there will be a package option to split UHD and multiroom. So for people like me who don't use multiroom but have the package to get UHD, it would be good. There might also be something happening on HD as I was complaining about having to pay an HD and UHD sub and...
