On Saturday night, the high winds caused the pole that the Sky dish is fixed to to shear off at the lower of the two brackets, leaving the dish flapping about and us having no signal. I've temporarily repaired it with masking tape and string (I'm a real handyman, obviously) but as that won't last I figured I'd bite the bullet and get Sky to come around and replace the pole. I assumed I'd end up being charged £60 as they actually installed the pole 14 years ago, but the customer service bloke arranged it free of charge because I'm still under warranty. It seems that when Sky offered to replace my old non-HD boxes with new HD ones for no charge last May (which I accepted), the extended 12 months minimum term also extended the warranty for the dish. Bonus!
