Does anyone think the £10 a month will stay?

hi there,

I'm very keen to get sky HD but the finance controller isn't with the extra £10 a month.

Does anyone remember how long after introduction sky dropped the £10 a month for sky+ if you had the premium packages, and do you think they will do the same for sky hd?

regards,

Greg

I moved my credit card and broadband to Sky at the same time so in overall costs I managed to show the GF that I was saving us money :D

Personally I can see Sky dropping the £10 a month if you have multi-room first before they consider scrapping it altogether :( . Maybe after its been out a year?

It took 2 years before SKY decided the marketing advantages and retention aspects made more sense than charging £10 across the board for SKY+ and I suspect a similar timescale for HD unless VM make major movies into the format.

I think it's a no brainer for SKYworld to include HD at some point and well if you can get a deal on the hardware I would take the £120 sub increase hit in the first year, it's a decent introduction to broadcast HD if you get it all for under £300.

yeh I tried the switching phone & Broadband over, that was all part of the cunning plan, but it didn't work!

Will try again I guess !!

There is no plans in the near future to reduce/remove the HD cost on any package. Sky recently knocked down the price of the kit, thats all they are doing for now sorry

It might actually be a start if Sky showed some common sense and dropped the second HD sub if you want an HD box for multiroom instead of ordinary Sky +.

That is totally unjustifiable and offputting for anyone with multiroom who might want to upgrade - yet the £20 charge (2 x £10 pm) is still there.

Until that goes there is little chance of the original £10 pm being removed.
