    I've just moved house and have not got Sky any more :(
    But I'am looking to get Sky +
    Is there any good deals on Sky + , or any due soon

    I must say what's put me of in the past is that you pay an extra
    £10 a month for Sky + ( Why ) is this :mad:

    Will Sky + ever come down in price , also about £50 a month is a bit much Don't we Think Yes

    :D

    If you moved house then SKY would have fitted a new dish to your new home for (Last I heard it was £40) and you used your existing digibox and subscription.
    You can order SKY+ online for £199 and £1 install, the £10 subscription on top of that and then your chosen channel package.

    The £10 subscription.....Why?
    BSKYB are a business, they exist to make money for their shareholders (Also pay off a £1.5 billion debt), and if their customers are prepared to pay £10 a month for a service then they would be fools not to charge for it.
    Marketing has already made it's presence felt though, the charge is waived when you take out the mirror subscription on a SKYworls package and as time goes on that sort of deal will filter down to the lower packages and eventually it'll be a standard part of any subscription. The time factor will depend opon the strength of DTT and cable services, which isn't reassuring:)
